Hi! I'm Karl.
I've been a freelance eLearning designer since 2002. I'm a proud learning geek with a passion for the craft of learning design.
Some of the courses I design are strictly online, others face to face, or blended. I consider myself a blended learning specialist and believe that the best blends also include social learning or performance support tools. I'm the founder of a company called eLearning Blends and jokingly call myself the Head Blender.
My Education and Background
I completed my MA in Educational Technology at San Diego State University in 2006, then began teaching online courses for SDSU.
- Exploratory Learning through Games and Simulations
- The Psychology of Online Learning
- Collaborative Learning with Blogs and Wikis
I actually started my career during a year spent as a kindergarten teacher in Seoul Korea. I taught ESL to elementary school children in Taiwan for 4 years before going to grad school.
My YouTube channel and the courses I've created for this site are a new adventure. I hope you'll participate and join me as I share what I know about effective learning design.
I'm a Southern California transplant living in Louisville, Kentucky with my wife, 4 boys, and a dog named Derby.You can find out more about me by following me on twitter
