Comet - eLearningMarch 2011 - March 2012

My role at comet involves developing eLearning content to help deliver the learning objectives for the subject. When developing content I analyse input from Subject Matter Experts (SME's) to develop and modify instructional material. To do this I identify user needs, analyse and logically organize complex technical information, and transform complex bodies of information into professionally designed, engaging and effective learning.

I produce a range of product knowledge content by researching products identified through supplier contacts and bodies appointed by the Commercial Operating Heads, as well as demonstrating the initiative to identify alternative product sources. Once I have created and delivered the required training or project I produce statistics on the usage of all content produced to assess usage and adoption.

My role has allowed me to build effective working relationships with both internal and external stakeholders and has allowed me to confidently communicate with various levels of management appointed by the Commercial Operating Heads.

One of my biggest achievements in this role has been the production and delivery of the Knowledge Zone which is the internal website for all Learning and Development; I created this from scratch using Dreamweaver and CSS/HTML coding.
