Welcome all.

Hi, my name is Campbell Douglas Thomas Craig, I am a 40+ year old guy based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. My primary job is to help co-ordinate, manage and assist in the development of eLearning, applications and anything else really that requires multimedia or programming of some sort.

I am a child of the Internet. I may be one of the first of my mates to have used it, I first logged on in 1993. I am part of the oldest generation of people to have started using the internet as a teenager, so I think it is in my bloodstream now. Sometimes I dream of being still online in my sleep.

Your first impression you already probably have of me is an antisocial, creative and technical computer nerd. Well, first of all, I do have a semi social life with guys from work so that rules the first point out, as for the others, that kinda is true, but I do love other things besides computers as you will find out soon through this interactive journey on my site.

I hope this blog will release some of my rants, vents and angers plus a few tips for some people.

I love the ability where I can plan, prioritise, design, develop and deliver blended learning solutions for a variety of markets. I love to consult and advise about the best use of digital learning and improve design standards in line with evolving ways of working. I also enjoy to keep up to date with, understand and regularly recommend emerging technologies and practice to improve individuals, teams and organisational capabilities. With over 12 years digital learning experience and demonstrated experience in both instructional design and eLearning development, I have also a lot of experience conducting training needs analysis including how to leverage principles such as design thinking and root cause analysis to understand and address performance gaps. I also have led many facilitation workshops and even presented at iDesignX and Game Developers Conferences both here in Australia, Wales and in the United States. I bring loads of coding experience in Java, ASM, C++, HTML, JavaScript, SCORM and xAPI, as well as proven capability using Adobe Captivate, Trivantis Lectora and Articulate Storyline 360 Studio authoring programs. Of course, Adobe Creative Cloud is also part of my toolbox which I also use daily. Being taught traditional and advanced 3D animation techniques, I love hand drawing and polymer clay sculpture, but can also use the Blender, 3D Studio Max, Maya and Softimage applications. With strong multimedia, training and programming backgrounds, I understand modern learner behaviour including micro and social learning, I am very familiar with most LMSes and app-based (XCode and Android Studio), adult learning models and e-solutions. I also possess the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, whilst being pro-active in delivering work independently with minimal supervision, but enjoy working in teams. I've been told I am a resilient, relationship focused guy which can manage and navigate conflicting views and stakeholders/subject matter experts.
