I used various multimedia tools including Adobe Audition, Camtasia, and still photography to create this demonstration. It is a short instructional presentation, which I composed using audio recording and editing software and video editing software. The goal of the course was to apply the principles of instructional design with multimedia tools as part of the instructional technology, which was applied at a high level in this project example.
In this video, I provide a short explanation on how to start a vintage Hammond organ.
Please note: The website containing my ePortfolio, which you are browsing now, is a stronger example of my design skills.
Matt’sWhoopiePies.com is meant to be an instructional website. Visitors will learn which ingredients are needed for both the cake part of the cookie and the frosting as well as oven temperature and baking times. The website does not integrate visitor assessments because it is beyond the scope of the website’s goal.
You can view the website by clicking on the image on the right. It will open in a new window.
By the way, if you have never tasted a whoopie pie, and you like to bake, you may want to give this recipe a try. It just might be your new favorite cookie.
Facilitator-led Training Example
Instructional design is both a field (profession) and a process. In the field of instructional design and technology (IDT), instructional designers (IDs) have processes – or a system of checks and balances – that are used to create high-quality instructional materials regardless of the delivery method (synchronous, asynchronous, blended). One of the processes is the ADDIE model.
Here is an example of a Facilitator guide and Participant guide that I created for a simple topic to demonstrate my ability in creating facilitator-led training.

In 2007 I began working in instructional design team, where I found a new passion.
