Sandi Preiss

“The work quality was great…and did display a solid understanding of what we were aiming to achieve even without having experienced a slice of the end user experience. [Our contact at A Pass] was terrific. He was exceptionally responsive and asked all the right questions. On top of that, he did not hesitate to make recommendations where he thought that necessary. It felt like having a great partner instead of us just being a client.”

Kate Gallo Reilly

Sr. Product Developer, E-Line Media/Historia

“…[A Pass] met and exceeded my expectations after we discussed what I hoped for and the goals I was interested in achieving. I wished to differentiate my book and the lessons it offered for students from other Holocaust education literature I found as it related to displaced persons and I wished for it to become meaningful and relevant in today’s world…”

5 Questions To Ask An Instructional Designer

When looking at project costs, one can wonder if an instructional designer (ID) is needed. But before deciding against hiring a professional learning designer, consider the benefits. First, IDs are subject matter experts in designing instruction. They understand the complexities and nuances of the process. Second, professionals can translate instructional design theories into practical, real-world learning applications. They know how to intently craft learning that engages while educating learners. They align learning content with assessment, curriculum goals, course objectives, and standards. IDs work with your subject matter experts to create storyboards, review current learning resources, and audit existing curriculum content. For publishers, IDs ensure the content builds from one grade to the next in a logical way that makes sense – and is accessible – to all learners. Besides that, IDs make resources that help teachers identify and meet every student’s needs in their classrooms so that all students can thrive. In short, instructional designers are the key to the curriculum development process. Still, when looking to add an ID vendor, there are questions to ask.
