About the author
I have been guiding educators in the use of online educational technologies for more than 17 years working with hundreds of educators throughout California and the U.S., and around the world. Working side by side with teachers through the process of online course development, I have gained insights into the common pitfalls, problems, and needs teachers have while designing and developing online courses.
I developed a comprehensive program that guides educators through the process of designing and developing online courses. My first program was offered at City College of San Francisco (CCSF) in 2001. While at CCSF, two national and 11 statewide awards for exemplary online courses were obtained by faculty who worked with me. Because the program was so successful, I began to offer the program to other colleges and universities. As an eLearning consultant, I extend my expertise to colleges and universities to assist them in their online learning initiatives.
