Instructional Design Internships

If you are looking for real life experience in the Instructional Design field take a look at KeelWorks.

KeelWorks is a non-profit organization that teaches life skills via the Internet to children of all ages and economic backgrounds.

As an intern you will be part of a design team. The design team takes an idea and makes a completed learning object.The intern gains valuable experience collaborating via the Internet and working on a project from inception to completion.

In return for completing an internship, KeelWorks will be a job reference giving the intern a distinct advantage over many other job seekers.

Take a look at what KeelWorks has to offer at http://www.keelworks.org/.

Have a wonderful day!

Spring 2010

Happy new year!

A new semester has started and I feel the anxiety that presents at the start of every semester. Actually, it is giddiness born of excitement mistaken for anxienty. I really love school...that's why I'm still a student.

Some changes and additions have been made to the http://www.texedex.com/ website. I am trying to keep up with it. Narrowing my focus should help me keep on task.

At present the site is a general education clearinghouse. The theme may change by graduation (May 2011).

I am becoming more addicted to Adobe Flash(R). I have the Adobe Creative Suite 4, bought last spring for a Flash class. It is so impressive that my son wanted it for Christmas. He is learning Photoshop(R) in school this year so I sprung to get him the CS4 version for Mac.

I am taking two classes this semester. One is the capstone class for the e-Learning certificate offered by the university. Both will keep me very busy, so busy that I will once again be surprised that the semester has ended!

Have a wonderful day!
