I integrate how adults learn with how they experience design and technology.

My Work
Jim McKinley Brown

Creator of eLearning user experiences that put people first.

I am curious about the ways adult learners show up and interact with content and technologies. My passion for knowledge production extends into all corners of real-world experiences and emerging technologies, clear design, social good, and user experiences with curricular making.

The capacity to grow, learn, and change is our greatest superpower. My desire to help others comes from my commitment to designing authentic learning experiences that are delightful yet useful.

“I've had the great pleasure of collaborating with and mentoring Jim as he's worked to grow his eLearning and instructional design career. Jim is a fantastic instructional designer who understands how to turn knowledge into performance. Additionally, Jim's ability to receive and take action from feedback is a rare commodity in our industry. He is objective, passionate, and thoughtful. Anyone would be lucky to work with Jim on an instructional design or eLearning project.”
