US Government Accountability Office

As an instructional designer working with the United States Government Accountability Office, my primary focus was on ensuring that all content was 508, WCAG, and ADA compliant. I served as a disability subject matter expert and worked with the agency to design training curriculum for creating accessible documents. I reviewed agency documents and generated recommendations to enhance their accessibility.

To achieve these goals, I collaborated with multiple stakeholders, including content creators, IT staff, and subject matter experts. We worked together to ensure that all documents and training materials were accessible to people with disabilities. This involved reviewing all content, from documents and spreadsheets to training videos and presentations.

In addition to reviewing documents, I also provided training to agency staff on how to create accessible content. This training covered best practices for document design, such as creating accessible tables and adding alternative text to images. I also provided guidance on how to create accessible multimedia content, such as videos and audio files.

Throughout the project, I maintained a focus on 508, WCAG, and ADA compliance. This involved staying up-to-date on the latest accessibility guidelines and requirements and making sure that all content met those standards.

Overall, my work with the United States Government Accountability Office was focused on ensuring that all content was accessible to everyone, regardless of their disabilities.

I was responsible for managing the Learning Management System (LMS). My primary goal was to ensure that the LMS met the needs of the agency and its employees, and was compliant with government regulations.

To achieve this, I worked closely with the LMS vendor to implement updates and resolve any technical issues that arose. I also provided support to agency employees who had questions or issues with the LMS, and conducted user training sessions to help them navigate the system.

In addition to managing the LMS, I was also responsible for ensuring that all training content was uploaded and available on the platform. This involved working with subject matter experts to develop and design engaging and effective eLearning courses that were accessible to all employees.

To ensure the effectiveness of the training content, I conducted regular evaluations and assessments to measure the impact of the training on employee performance. I also worked with the agency’s leadership to identify areas where additional training was needed, and developed training plans to address these needs.

Another aspect of my role was to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and best practices in instructional design and eLearning, and to incorporate these into our training programs.
