Thinking Strings, NJ
As the sole developer, built a reusable framework for highly interactive college level e-learning courses. Worked with subject matter experts to design and develop tools that allow authors to easily input content, and quickly generate a course. By design, all courses include student progress tracking and reporting to professors via a custom Learning Management System. Courses developed with this system are currently in use at universities throughout the US. The framework has proven flexible enough to allow for the creation of semester-length, college level e-learning courses on a wide variety of subjects.
