Online learning 


Public Speaking Specialization. 2016-present. I designed, recorded, and produced a four-course online public speaking curriculum (https://www.coursera.org/specializations/public-speaking).  The courses have been translated into Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, and Vietnamese.  Since 2016, the courses individually and the specialization have enrolled over 307,000 students (as of April, 2021). 

My online courses were used for in-person learning circles by P2PU (https://www.p2pu.org/en/). 2015-present. P2PU is a non-profit organization offering online classes with face-to-face meetings through public library systems. Thus far, P2PU has offered my public speaking classes in Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Ottawa, Wichita, and four cities in Kenya: Nakuru, Narok, Murang'a, and Meru. 

U101. 2015-present. I led a team that flipped UW student orientation. Working with partners from the Provost’s office and First Year Programs, I designed and built U101, an all online first year student orientation. I used the U101 video material to build a non-UW specific “understanding college” MOOC for Coursera (https://www.coursera.org/learn/college-life).

Public Speaking MOOC. 2013-2016. I designed, recorded, and produced a free online public speaking course. The MOOC ran on EdX and Coursera. In its various incarnations, over one million individuals interacted with the materials. The course was retired once I started the new specialization.  


Public Speaking Online. 2015-present. I designed and produced a for-credit version of “COM 220: Introduction to Public Speaking” for UW’s online degree program (ISS).
