Recently, I became aware of the idea of empathy in instructional design. Upon further research, I saw that there seems to be a lot of discussion regarding this topic (especially from the past few years or so). For examples, check out the links below: 5 Steps Towards Empathetic Instructional Design In Online Training A Guide to Empathetic Design Empathy As Your Starting Point for Great eLearning Design Empathy Framework Overview So, what does empathy in instructional design
Last week, you may have noticed I didn't write a blog up. Welp, that was because a majority of my spare time was prepping for a virtual conference I was able to present at. As part of our ID2ID program, my partner Heather and I were selected to present on our work with Audio Feedback tools. I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on my presentation and how it went. First, I thought it was going to be a small conference (maybe 50 people in the whole attendance). The pres
Camtasia is one of the most user-friendly screen recorder and video editor that I have ever used. While it is not free – there is a free trial and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. I know I was extremely impressed with the tool and have it as one of my most used tools in my ID toolkit. I use Camtasia at least once a week (if not more).

As part of the ID2ID Experience I am taking part in this year, we (my buddy and myself) are asked to attend or participate in two professional development opportunities. To learn about our first professional development, please feel free to read my blog ID2ID Professional Development - Synopsis 1. As a reminder, we decided to write up a literature review on our topic of Audio Feedback. Once our resources were gathered, we were having difficulty learning how to structure and
As part of the ID2ID experience I am taking part in this year, we (my buddy and myself) were asked to attend or participate in two professional development opportunities. We decided to write up a literature review on our topic of Audio Feedback. As such, we quickly realized we were having difficulty trying to find current research out in the field. We decided as a team that we wanted to reach out to our respective librarians to determine the best ways to collect research.
Later today, I have a meeting with one of our instructors. This individual did not develop the course he taught nor does he have extensive experience teaching online. Our meeting is to discuss how the course was developed, designed, and how it runs. This meeting had me thinking about how feedback can come from a lot of different sources - instructors, students, other designers, etc. While I look for different feedback sources when looking at the design of the course - it ma
