Alexis Hovanesian

After serving as an English language instructor, Alexis learned that instructional design was a profession and decided to pursue it full-time.

She combined her rich experience helping people learn with her own drive to learn more. This led her to build her skills and create a portfolio that helped her secure multiple offers and an excellent instructional design role.

On her site, Alexis builds a connection with her audience by including photos of what's important to her and telling us about her values.

The best example of this is on her about page; we don't just see Alexis's passion for helping people learn, but we also see how her global travels have helped her foster her own love for learning.

Once we get to the flagship project, we see that Alexis isn't just skilled as an instructional designer and eLearning developer, but she's also concerned about the well-being of the people around her.

The purpose of the project is to help people prepare food for people with celiac disease, and we can see Alexis's deep expertise with Storyline and visual design from beginning to end.

Instructional Designer

Before I joined the bootcamp, I felt lost and overwhelmed trying to transition from elementary English language instructor to instructional designer. Although this is a viable path for some, I realized that I needed more direction.

I did a lot of research on the bootcamp and knew that I would be able to learn valuable instructional design skills while also receiving the feedback and support that I wanted while creating my flagship project and portfolio website.

Once I joined the bootcamp, I felt a huge relief. I quickly found a partner with a similar background and career goals who I could share ideas and questions with. I was also able to join bootcamp teams where we supported and inspired one another on our team meetings.

Overall, the feedback from the bootcamp pros and community members was reassuring, honest, and extremely helpful, and the bootcamp gave me the structure, guidance and support that I knew I needed. The additional inspiration from seeing how people in the bootcamp accomplished things made the experience even more rewarding.

With the help of the bootcamp, I was able to take an idea and turn it into a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing eLearning experience. At the beginning of this process, I felt in awe of those who had already finished their portfolios. But, as I worked through the well-organized and structured bootcamp courses, I recognized that my own instructional design, eLearning development, and visual design skills had improved significantly.

I now feel very confident in my portfolio and my technical and instructional design skills. Because of the bootcamp, I have a valuable set of new skills and a portfolio that I'm proud of. I've had numerous interviews and received multiple offers, and I recently accepted a new role as an Instructional Designer!
