Christopher King teaches Designing Computer-Based Training.

Christopher has over twenty-five years of experience that includes extensive work in online learning, instructional technology, interactive multimedia authoring, video production, web design, graphical design, software design and assistive technologies for students with disabilities.

Among his varied roles, Christopher has served as District Director for Instructional Technology at Polk State College, instructional multimedia developer for University of South Florida, instructional designer for Florida Virtual School, distance education coordinator for University of Florida, instructional technologist for St. Petersburg College, and as an online instructor and assistive technology specialist for Santa Fe College.

Christopher has a Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication from Syracuse University (where he minored in Film Production) and earned his Master of Science in Computing Technology in Education from Nova Southeastern University (where he was an online learner in one of the nation's very first, online graduate degree programs).

Christopher has extensive experience overseeing, handling and supporting CBT (computer-based training) and online course development and delivery; working with and designing CBT authoring tools, and has worked in partnership with the ADL Academic Co-Lab to develop a unique, SCORM compliant framework for online delivery of XML/Flash based RLO's (reusable learning objects).

Christopher feels that two of the major challenges faced by today's developers of online education and training content are the need for greater knowledge and skills in instructional multimedia authoring and the capability to identify and utilize user-appropriate, CBT and digital media authoring tools.

Christopher lives in central Florida with his beautiful wife, Carmen, who is a special education teacher and with his two amazing boys, Benjamin and Jacob.
