Our Content Came to Life Online
"I've been working with Kim for over two years to develop e-learning courses for Sport for Life. Her assistance with the instructional design has resulted in interactive courses that make our content come to life online. Kim has listened to our vision for the courses and drawn from her wealth of experience to suggest creative solutions and interactive activities. She is easy to communicate with and is timely with her responses to questions and delivery of documents. "
