People Make Pathways
Dylan graduated from Bournemouth University in England with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology and Information Technology before beginning his career in the world of eLearning.
Today, we chatted with Dylan about his favourite projects, adjusting to working from home, and everyone’s favourite Netflix obsession, The Queen’s Gambit.
Hi Dylan! You’ve worked on several great projects since you joined Pathways. What’s been your favourite so far?
One of the most enjoyable projects I worked on involved creating a gamified simulation for a client. The simulation replicated scenarios an employee would face daily in their job.
It was a lot of fun to develop as it incorporated a lot of interesting features such as avatars, branching, interactive pages, scoring, and lives.
Very cool! What changes or developments do you anticipate in the eLearning space now that more and more people are transitioning to working and studying online?
I think eLearning and completing online training remotely will become much more normalised over the next few years, as huge numbers of people are now working and learning from home on their computers. I think it’ll be more important than ever that eLearning is engaging and educational.
Agreed! Speaking of working and learning remotely… how has your work life changed now that you’re working from home?
The added flexibility and time saved has been hugely beneficial. Not losing a chunk of my morning commuting and getting stuck on the subway has been great!
Ah yes, the good old TTC. Have you discovered any new media obsessions during lockdown? Podcasts, books, TV shows?
I recently binge-watched The Queen's Gambit on Netflix which is an incredible mini-series to get lost in if you want to spend a weekend relaxing.
The Queen’s Gambit is great! Who knew chess could be so exciting? What are you looking forward to in 2021?
I’m most looking forward to being able to go outside again when it’s safe to do so. If things get better by summer time, I’m hoping to get out and see some new places.
