Welcome to my portfolio.
I’ve been maintaining this portfolio of work since I started graduate school in 2008. My portfolio is a little bit of everything – eLearning, Instructor-Led Training, job aids, etc. Some of my projects are complete, and some are just interactions that I built out. I borrowed a phrase from Cammy Bean for those incomplete interactions and labeled them “Clicky-clicky bling-bling.” Sometimes, you need to work on something to see if you can figure it out, and maybe it just doesn’t fit in an entire module. That’s what clicky-clicky bling-bling is to me, but Cammy Bean’s definition is below.
So what is clicky-clicky bling-bling? It’s eLearning with lots of whiz, lots of bang, lots of clicky-clicky in a lame attempt to add pizzazz to dry content to make it more engaging. Once you unwrap the sparkle, sadly, all you’re left with is a load of eLearning junk. Just because your eLearning sparkles and shivers and gets the learner clicking on lots of fancy hotspots and has them dragging things all over the screen does not mean that you have engaged the learner.
