Best eLearning Developer: Craig Bunyea, Concurrent Technologies Corporation
“Craig is a fantastic eLearning developer! He created a New Hire Orientation online course that is very interactive and visually appealing. The course is laid out as a town and the buildings are different topics that new employees need to visit and view. The employee navigates through the town and learns many of the processes and procedures at our company. Not only did Craig develop all the flash elements of the course, but also he drew the background for the town that employees visit on their journey through the course. After entering a building, Craig also drew the main images and background images inside each building. He is talented both in 2-D design and in programming. Using Dreamweaver, he finalized the course for our company’s LMS. We get nothing but positive comments from employees, since many times, mandatory training can be just a page-turner. Additionally, Craig is very easy to work with and is open to all suggestions. He patiently teaches me design and programming concepts since I am trying to learn some of what he does. I will never have the same level of ability as Craig and realize how important he is to the CTC University team.”
