What they are saying
I’m a Raleigh, North Carolina-based Instructional Designer and eLearning Developer.
Anthony Johnson is my name. I’m interested in technology, gaming, abstract art, and distinctive fonts. I’m also interested in diverse cultures, travel, art, and working with people. I’ve been in the learning and development profession for more than a decade. Working in the design and development sector is tremendously gratifying for me, and it’s especially rewarding when I can offer interesting solutions for learners.
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, fortunate to have parents that recognized that being artsy was cool and allowed me to express myself uniquely as early as the age of five.
As I grew older, I became attracted to any form of art that allowed me to express myself creatively, therefore painting became an outlet for me.
As a trainer and designer, I found myself drawn to designing and building eLearning and using PowerPoint more and more.

“Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries.”
A quantifiable business goal aids in the creation of relevant activities, the identification of critical content, the evaluation of your project’s success, and the demonstration of how your work benefits the business.
Design & Development
By understanding what people aren’t doing and why, I design and construct activities that individuals must take to reach your business goals.
Active Learning Approach
Is training going to be enough to remedy the issue? To fulfil performance solutions, I build real-world practice activities that are relevant to the job.
Step one, employing action mapping, is, in my opinion, the most crucial of all the other phases. I have a lot of opportunities to ask open-ended questions here, so I prefer to use Twine, a program that helps me illustrate action plans while listening to all parties involved to get a clear understanding of the client’s business goals and challenges in order to determine if training is the right solution. My aim is “developing a solution with a measurable and achievable goal to improve the organizations performance,” thanks to Cathy Moore’s book “Map It.”
