My resources are meant to help others in the field of information technology and instructional design. From what I understand, most instructional designers and developers would not be where they are without some networking and sharing.

Much of what I do is inspired by the resources I find while supplementing my instructional knowledge. Some of these resources are published by experts in the field of instructional design and others are empirically supported.

I am a member of the professional network of Instructional Design and Development professionals.
