PBS is one of the most recognized and respected brands in broadcast television and online content. Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) is Arkansas's PBS affiliate.
The AETN Education Division provides professional development and educational resources to more than 25,000 educators and makes learning opportunities available to all Arkansas educators, students, and parents.
AETN Education Division Website
This was the first major redesign the Education division website had received since its launch in 2007. The primary goals were to align the brand more closely with AETN as a whole, make the site architecture simple and intuitive based on research and data, and have the site be fully responsive and work on any device.

ArkansasIDEAS LMS (Learning Management System)
With nearly two years of planning and development, in May 2015, the Education Division launched a brand new Learning Management System (LMS) from Totara (Moodle). This new system would provide educators with a significantly improved, responsive, and modern experience.

In 2012, I initiated a complete visual overhaul and rebranding of the LMS from the initial design that had been in place since its inception in 2007. Given the age and complexity of the system, as well as the limitations that were placed on the project scope, this required code changes on hundreds of pages.

Professional Development Course Catalog
As a companion piece for the LMS, we created a print catalog that contained all the courses we offered with descriptions. These catalogs were 180+ pages long.

Teacher Resource Sites
Partnering with the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), these three sites were created as teacher resources that offered over 100 hours of instruction and hundreds of other digital resources. They also helped keep educators informed of several important changes that were happening in the K-12 school systems.
