I make, write, and speak at the intersection of learning, technology, and design.
Judy has presented topics to the Chicago Lectora User's Group a couple of times over the past few years. Judy is a joy to work with... her expertise, knowledge and professionalism always shine through and her willingness to share is greatly appreciated.
Judy and I originally connected through #lrnchat (a weekly discussion group that focuses on topics related to elearning and instructional design). We came to know each other much better at the Learning Solutions 2011 Conference where we spent time together discussing futher our interests and passions in the ID field. We have kept in touch regularily since the conference and continue to be long-distance peers to one another. I'm particularly fond of her passion for learning and technology and am always impressed by her generosity for sharing her expertise with others one-on-one, through her blog, and her podcast. She's and outstanding desginer and I consider myself extremely lucky to have her a part of my personal learning network.
Working with Judy Unrein at PUEI was a pleasure! She and I collaborated on a number of projects, and I always found her to be knowledgeable, helpful, and, frankly, fun.
When Judy left to pursue an amazing opportunity during the final stages of one of our collaborations (a continuation of her award-winning work on an e-learning software program), she made sure that I had all the tools and information I needed to complete the project on my own. She and I worked through several items together while we documented each step. The processes she had developed were so intuitive and well-considered that it took very little effort for me to understand and manage them.
I highly recommend Judy for any job that requires a stylish and professional approach to product/project management, instructional design, or e-learning development.
Judy is brilliant. Her expertise in learning development tools and strategies is second to none. She is one of the first people I call on for advice and best practices in learning design and development.
We also share a passion for usability and accessibility in learning, the web, and all things tech. Her writing style and quality are exceptional as well. I have worked with Judy to record podcasts and develop websites. I highly recommend her. She would be a valuable asset to any organization.
I first came to know of Judy Unrein through her participation on #lrnchat on Twitter. I found her contributions to the conversation bright and intuitive, immediately identifying her as someone I'd like to learn more about. Weeks later, I had the opportunity to meet her at ASTD TechKnowledge where she was presenting on HTML5. After many conversations that week, it was clear to me that Judy would be an important ally in the learning industry, as her breadth of knowledge of authoring tools and the technologies that underpin them makes her incredibly resourceful.
Since TechKnowledge, Judy and I chat daily as collaborators and I find her energy and her passion for crafting quality eLearning an inspiration. I applaud and eagerly await each "Toolbar" podcast she produces with Brian Dusablon. I'm lucky to be able to call on her expertise and to consider her as a friend. She would be among the first designers I would call upon for any venture in learning, education or training.
Judy and I have been in classes together at UMASS Boston working toward our Masters of Education in Instructional Design. I've been fortunate to partner with Judy on several initiatives. I chose to work with Judy whenever possible! Judy has an excellent and well-rounded skill set backed by a highly principled work ethic. You can consistently count on Judy to exceed expectations in the areas that matter on a project. In particular, I'm impressed by Judy's Instructional Design talent with eLearning. Her designs are creative, engaging and backed by solid instructional design principles. I enthusiastically recommend Judy Unrein.
