For months, Devlin and I worked together for an international professional association, partnered as instructional designer and subject matter expert to create interactive online courses. I had never worked with the platform before.
Devlin was patient, good-humored, and results-oriented, making our meetings pleasant and productive. He translated my material into the required format without distorting my content and helped me look at my concepts with fresh eyes by asking hard questions. The result more than met my expectations. Can recommend him without hesitation and hope to work together again.
Devlin's enthusiasm makes him a pleasure to work with. He is clearly knowledgeable about his field and brings a fresh perspective to the ideas he's given to start from. I absolutely would recommend him to anyone looking to create or revamp any training course.
Devlin just finished an elearning development project for one of my clients. I give him my highest recommendation, and here's why:
He is always professional, and he is great with both internal and external clients. He is poised, confident, knowledgeable, and humble in his interactions with others.
He is very flexible. This project, like so many others, had periods of interminable waiting followed by periods of intense demand. He responded to both with grace, skill, and when needed, tremendous speed.
He is a problem solver. Devlin takes it upon himself to learn what he needs to learn to meet the project requirements.
He is technically proficient. His Articulate files are clean and error free and he does great quality control.
Devlin is a fun and proficient collaborator.
I first came across Devlin while listening to Kristin Anthony's Dear Instructional Designer podcast. As a guest, he provided valuable insights gained from his experience consulting.
While participating in the Torrance xAPI cohort, I read and followed Devlin's tutorials on integrating xAPI with Articulate Storyline. They're clear and concise, and I've referenced them a handful of times since.
Devlin actively contributes to the online community, answering questions, and graciously providing help to newcomers at every opportunity. It's clear he has more than just a professional interest: He's determined to make a positive impact on the field.
Devlin's feedback has dramatically influenced the design and development of my work. He consistently explains the science behind his observations and ideas for improvement. His industry knowledge is unparalleled. He's up to date on best practices, and he's in constant communication with industry leaders. Devlin has a remarkable combination of technical, creative, business, and soft skills. He has an uncanny ability to get to the root of a problem and align the design, development, and implementation to solve that problem without ever losing sight of the bottom line.
I worked with Devlin to develop an online learning module on Strategic Communication for my professional association. He provided exceptional guidance to me as the subject matter expert, helping me convert complex academic content into an interactive learning experience. Devlin’s active listening skills were exemplary. This allowed him to take a concept and build it out independently. He and I worked as true partners in shaping the content and I couldn’t be happier about the final product. I consider him an instructional design rockstar.
I inquired about a help session for Articulate Storyline as a new Instructional Designer wanting to learn the ropes. After one session, Devlin has taught me so much about using Storyline to effectively convey content. He has also been a massive help in helping me grow my business, from guiding me through marketing myself as a freelance ID, to helping me land client work. I highly recommend his coaching service!
