I have been working in a large corporate setting since 2011 and I spent several years writing about it. These are my thoughts, ideas, and just me documenting some of the things I've experienced. You may find solutions to problems, just thinking through the problems, and more.

You may notice the posts end on March 23rd, 2016. That's because I have been exploring other interests in my spare time which do related to Learning & Development a lot. Mainly I have been working on Exprance, Sacramento web design and digital marketing agency, but there are also some other side projects I've worked on.

One of my jobs at the two big organizations I've worked at (Robert Half & DaVita) is to create videos for the IT department. IT software is boring and learning about changes and how it effects jobs isn't fun. To make it more interesting I have worked on many releases to create a marketing/training video. It's a marketing video because it helps sell the changes and make it more interesting. It's training because it also shows some of the details about the upcoming changes.

The videos for IT departments are neither fully marketing nor fully training. They don't go into the details of the changes, which job aids helps cover, but they do make updates sound more interesting.

I have recently decided as part of my side projects is going to be to help other organizations create similar videos for their releases. They are a huge benefit to organizations and their IT departments. You can learn more on my App Marketing Video web page with more details about the marketing/training videos.

Now for some of the content I've written about in the L&D space.

Do You Need a Mobile App, Web App, or Mobile Website?

There are many questions that come up when deciding on what type of mobile solution is needed for an organization. I’m not going to cover them all or else I’d be writing a novel. The question I want to cover is whether to app or not. What I mean by this is the two major…

Social Awareness Program at MSIDT

I recently began a new consulting job with the Master’s program I got my degree from. It’s the MSIDT program at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). It wasn’t for any typical Instructional Design work which I’ve worked on (even in my side consulting jobs) but with social media skills at the center. I’ve done a lot…

Don't control knowledge. Let it free.

I tried posting this last week but I’ve been having a hard time, so here’s my second chance breaking my many week silence. Hopefully dropping some knowledge on the knowledge-base will open the flood gates. There’s been a few times when a knowledge base has popped up in my world lately, from where I put things…

What i'm Working On

Life ebbs and flows, that seems to be how it goes. I went from relatively quiet days to too much. The quiet was prior to 6 months ago, it’s gone to relatively busy since then. In the past few days it’s caught up with me, either that or I have a bug that’s slowing me down…

Attention Spans Are Getting Shorter

Attention Spans Are Getting Shorter

Attentions spans are shrinking, nobody can pay attention for more than a few seconds. That’s what I hear all the time, and it was brought up many times in a recent chat2lrn. Just to clear things up, an attention span is that thing that allows us to pay attention to something. You know, when something…
