Instructional Media & eLearning Specialist

Melissa Gay Evans, M.Ed.


As an Instructional Designer, I work within the ADDIE framework to design and develop high-quality learning content for adult learners. My diverse work experience makes me a valuable team member and allows me to communicate effectively with colleagues, clients and service providers. Past clients include healthcare workers, educators, local business owners, and accrediting agencies.


Part of my passion and expertise is in Instructional Development. I have experience with LMSs and CMSs that include Blackboard, Canvas, D2L, Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla. As an eLearning specialist, I have developed online courses and training modules with development languages and tools such as PHP, javascript, and Adobe Captivate.


My years of experience with graphic design have made me an excellent instructional media specialist. The heart of my passion for instructional design lies in instructional media production. I have experience with graphic design, digital layout, video and audio production, and web design. I approach every project with the ultimate goal of excellence, regardless of budget or timeframe.

I am an Instructional Designer with a Master of Education and doctorate-level coursework in Instructional Design & Development.
