Meet Katy, Learner Experience Designer. She helps us make sure all our digital products are pedagogically solid, contain engaging and useful content, facilitate user interaction and have a great user experience. We asked her to share her story and what LXD means to her.
Meet Alex – Product Strategist at ELTjam. He tells us about his background, what first attracted him to LXD, what he’s currently excited about in the field and the best learning experience of his life.
Since 2013, ELTjam has evolved from a blog to a learning agency, but what got us fired up to start in the first place was our interest in tech, startup culture and new ways of working, and how these could be brought into ELT. One example is Agile – the standard way of running software projects and developing tech products – but in our experience still not used much in ELT materials development when done at a large scale. This post is about how we recently used Agile in a large ELT course development project.
