About Me

Hey there, my name is Raiza Paras.

I’m a freelance Instructional Designer and eLearning developer based in Dubai, UAE.

I grew up in the State of Kuwait, a tiny country in the Middle East. My dad was a civil engineer with a love of technology while my mom was a nurse with a love of teaching. (She did eventually became a preschool teacher).

Years later, without me realizing I combined their two loves. I’ve got a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science Major in Instructional Systems Technology in De La Salle University Manila, Philippines.

I started officially working as an Instructional Designer late 2014. Since then, my passion for this field continues to grow deep. I’m slowly discovering what I love and what I want to explore. 

Learning never stops and we must not either.

MY PROCESS

Learn about my project cycle.

Step One:

Discover your goals

We’ll start by scheduling a meeting to determine your needs and goals. This will help me scope the project, gather all resources available, and determine the timeline and deliverables.

Step Two:

Draft a blueprint

We’ll then work together to create a storyboard. Here we will determine your lesson objectives, course outline, branding, and content.

Step Three:

Develop a prototype

Once approved, I’ll then take the storyboard and start developing a prototype. This is where you get to see your course come to life.

Step Four:

Review and QA

Throughout the cycle, you will be given opportunities to review the deliverables. This is where you can request for changes.

Step Five:

Package and Deliver

For the final stage, I’ll gather all the course files and deliver the full course to you. I’ll also be working with your team to ensure the project runs smoothly.
