Kim’s Passion for eLearning
Kim is an ardent elearning advocate. Born of a long line of educators, and a top voiceover narrator herself, she coaches actors and laypeople how to engage with learners who aren’t in the recording studio with you. A student of instructional design as a multimedia platform during her Communications BA, this helped her dive into the medium in the mid ‘90’s (briefly as a writer) and whole heartedly as a voiceover artist. Passionate about elearning and its varied applications, Kim strongly identifies with her role as the conduit between the instructional designer, the SME and the learner and her voice features on over three dozen Award winning and thousands of other eLearning programs. Her friendly, conversational, engaging voice over is ideal for making technical and dense material clear.

eLearning Narration Strategies:
Increase Retention & Foster Behavior Change
Different e-learning programs have different end-goals. Academic courses orient toward learner retention, while corporate training programs seek behavior change. A voiceover artist who understands and performs with your goals in mind, helps you achieve your targets.
Pacing & Tone
Whether your online course is structured with long lectures or broken into micro learning, the pacing and tone of your voiceover talent is integral to the success of the audio part of your multimedia presentation. You want seamless audio quality, consistent pacing and varied rhythm. The tone? Something pleasant on the ear.
Style & Role
The role of the narrator has changed in eLearning. Gone are the soporific, robotic professors and here are the character narrators. The quirky hipster, the genuine friend, the engaged peer, the conversational manager. These choices bring new life to the genre. The focus? Totally one-to-one.
To give a script justice, a good eLearning narrator must be either a subject matter expert who also has excellent storytelling capabilities or an outstanding voice artist who can present the material with the passion of a SME and keep the listener spellbound within the story of the script.
Genuine interest in the educational material is critical to higher learner engagement and program success. A career narrator, like Kim is a careful blend of actor, educator and professional speaker.
