Need to Deliver an eLearning Project?

Build Your Success Roadmap
Even if You Don’t Have a Training Background.

Find Out Exactly What to Do NOW
to Successfully Build
eLearning Programs Right,  the First Time.


My name is V. Karen Miller,  I have  25+ years of  creating custom eLearning programs. As a corporate training leader, my teams have earned national recognition from ASTD and ISPI for excellence in eLearning.  Our programs touched 300,000+ people globally, saved $250K in production costs (first year), plus we delivered training on-time – every time.

I am a third-generation educator and have a PASSION for teaching with technology. I earned my master’s degree in Educational Technology from Texas A&M University and have been creating training professionally ever since. I have a varied background in working in many types of tech-driven corporations: high tech manufacturing, online K12 communities, online library, transportation, insurance, and mortgage servicing.

As an adjunct graduate professor at National and Chapman Universities (Sacramento, CA) I taught over 250 students of which 25 went on to become tech directors at their K12 school districts.  When teaching at the Uni. of Phoenix Online Graduate School I taught adult students worldwide in Instructional Design, Assessment & Evaluation, and Distance Learning Systems.

Yes, my life’s work is about developing training and teaching others. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you.

I worked as a corporate Instructional Designer in these companies to manage training programs.
(FAA Federal Contractor – Mike Monroney Center in Oklahoma City)

Since founding Design2Train, an instructional design and digital media company in 2001, my teams have created all types of custom eLearning projects.  Some of our clients and projects have included:

• National Sales Manager, Bayer Material Sciences
Spray Foam Insulation Applicator 8-hours of chemical safety training

• Environmental Engineer Consultants, Mead & Hunt
Design / build ACRP website Airport Stormwater Management Library & Training Materials with 5-hours self-paced training

 Engineering Project Manager, Baker Hughes
Comprehensive on-board training for Blue Orca (stimulation vessel) ship systems, proprietary software command center, drilling equipment, fluids lab testing, preventative maintenance, and safety information

• Airport Director, Wayne County Airport Authority 
SWPPP airport environmental staff and airport tenant eLearning

• Health Care Sales Managers, (McKesson) US Oncology
Conversion of 40-hours of Cancer Care classroom sales training  to eLearning

Risk Assessment Manager,  Texas Tech University
Conversion of Fifteen Passenger Van Safety classroom into eLearning safety training

Engineering Program Managers, TransOcean
Conversion of 40-hour classroom  Proprietary Rig Asset Management and Preventative Maintenance Scheduling into eLearning delivered worldwide to150 ocean drilling rig platforms

We could go on,  but Did You Observe Who We Worked With?  Look at their titles. They were all professionals whose primary role was to MANAGE or SELL, none had a Training Title nor any eLearning management experience. But we worked with each client to deliver eLearning on-time and on-budget.

In reality…even though Design2Train was hired to create training, we always ended up spending extra non-billable time educating clients on how to manage their eLearning projects. I developed a process that worked for corporations,  it was time to put a NEW PROCESS in place for our new prospective clients!

Some of Design2Train eLearning clients include:

Then, it suddenly all came together, when I got a call from Mike, a training developer with eLearning experience. He was hired by a oilfield safety company five years ago to develop classroom training. When he called, I was kind of shocked.

Mike was concerned he might be in the job market soon. Earlier this year, he had been tasked to create a rather simple 8-hour eLearning program which not managed correctly grew into a PAINFUL… NEVER ENDING PROJECT.  

Mike recalled all that had gone wrong, starting with not having senior management support, not a clear course vision, and having to deal with another manager who succeeded in disrupting the entire project into a different direction.

It was bad enough, when he had to re-do the entire project THREE TIMES, even though the content had been previously reviewed and approved. The project was delivered a couple months late BUT THE WORST PART WAS WHEN …

The final contractor invoice was three times higher than the original bid.  This whacky out of control project totally blew through the rest of his training budget FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.  Since the contract was not a firm-fixed bid, Mike was on the hook for paying an invoice THREE TIMES the amount of the original bill. His boss was NOT happy.

I asked, “Mike how long has it been since your last eLearning project?”  He told me it had been almost three years since he created an eLearning project and quite frankly he had been scrambling to remember all of the steps involved which only made matters worse.

THEN IT SUDDENLY HIT ME LIKE A LIGHTENING BOLT. The issue causing Mike’s grief was the same PAIN and FEAR my corporate non-training clients were experiencing.  How do you tame the eLearning project beast?  YOU NEED A PROVEN SYSTEM.

Delivering an eLearning project is like baking a cake.
Unless you follow the recipe,
it’s not going to be a cake when you get done.

eLearning Projects are Complex and Messy.
Like Herding Cats.

Unless you have a step-by-step process to follow, it’s almost impossible to get a project completed on-time or on-budget. There are just too many things happening at once, with tasks to be completed in a specific order, and lots of people contributing their part to get done on-time BEFORE proceeding to the Next Step.

For clarification, I am not talking about a little 15-minute animated video that teaches one simple concept.  I am talking about developing a real engaging TRAINING PROGRAM that covers 1-5 days (or more) of intense instruction. 

Let’s face it… if this is your first eLearning project, you don’t know what you don’t know

If you create eLearning occasionally, it’s easy to forget everything you need to remember!

“My team was building Design docs together
in the afternoon Bootcamp session”

Some companies choose to signup as a TEAM.  The Bootcamp TEAM program includes a two-hour overview of the Bootcamp process. Then in the afternoon, we hold a three-hour work session to start work on the four critical Design Phase documents. This is a great way to get projects started the right way from Day One.

After the workshop, when the documents are complete, setup a review / critique phone call to review your final versions of the Statement of Work and Timeline & Milestones.  Then your team is ready to submit the Statement of Work for bids.

Time to Take Action.

If you are serious, quit wasting time staring at a black paper. Before you invest one dollar, setup a free Discovery Call. 

In your phone appointment, rest assured “the cone of silence” is in effect, our conversation will be strictly confidential. Your information is not shared and we are even prepared to sign a non-disclosure agreement if needed.
