Meet Doug Wolfe

Applying educational technology to enhance learning and solve learning problems.

I am an elearning consultant who specializes in the following areas: online learning, interactive product development, mobile learning, educational content creation, and game development for higher education and K–12 clients. I enjoy wrestling with the puzzle of how to apply educational technology solutions that help students learn while dealing with the real world constraints of limited budgets, sensitive stakeholders, and classroom realities.

Things I Do

The services I offer fall into these broad categories:

  • Instructional design
  • Interactive product development
  • Educational product development
  • Teach online courses

More specifically, I lead projects and conceptualize, write, and edit

  • Online courses
  • E-learning activities/interactivities
  • Educational content
  • Activity/lesson storyboards
  • Mobile learning solutions
  • Games

My Approach

I see the forest and the trees. I am equally comfortable working on high-level planning and diving into the details to be sure the plan is executed as intended. I help project teams focus on the key objectives.

  • I communicate clearly with all stakeholders. I help technical and non-technical people understand one another.
  • I balance dreams with the realities of limited budgets, sensitive stakeholders, and on-the-ground conditions.
  • I identify instructional goals, learner characteristics, and technology solutions that support the goals and learners.
  • I implement solutions in an effective manner.
