Hello, I’m Maria
Learning Designer and Educator
Learning is the most efficient when learners are active in the learning process. We can achieve that by letting them apply the knowledge as they learn it and by having learners engage in the process.
15+ Years of Learning Design and Teaching Experience
I firmly believe that learning is most efficient when learners use their new knowledge as they learn it.
That is one of the reasons I am excited about active learning experiences, especially in e-learning: It allows for many types of simulations where learners can practice their skills in a safe environment.
I can help you with everything from analyzing your learning needs over curriculum planning to creating e-learning products and providing live training.
I have extensive experience teaching, developing curricula and creating teaching materials for in-person and online training in many subjects.
I am located in Central New Jersey and am open to in-person, hybrid, and remote work.

Some examples of my work:
This is one of the modules of a 23-module online course, teaching Danish for Beginners. This module contains several interactive elements, intended to assist in vocabulary learning before class so that the learner is ready for role plays and simulations.
The module was created with Articulate Rise.
This is a draft for a software training module that is intended to teach how to use the online graphic design program Canva to create graphics with brand colors and brand images.
The training was created using Articulate Rise 360 for the main course structure, Articulate Replay 360 and Peek360 for the screencasts, and Storyline 360 for the software simulation.
E-Magazines with Instructional Videos
These are examples of issues of my long-running online magazine that includes comprehensive instructions for sewing the featured pattern.
The layout was created with Photoshop and Lightroom in Adobe InDesign and videos were edited using Adobe Premiere Pro.
