Cengage Learning (sen’gāj): a leading provider of innovative teaching, learning and research solutions for the academic, professional and library markets worldwide.

Thomson Learning had just sold its publishing properties to a venture capitalist and with a new name and a new brand, when I left P&G for greener pastures and joined Cengage Learning.


While a short-lived position due to warring factions with was going to own this new function, I provided content management, prototype development for cengage.com, including editing and .NET component integration, and change/release management through the JIRA ticket system for the Comergent-based Ecommerce platform for ichapters.com and other business segments (serviceplus.cengage.com, estore.cengage.com, etc.).

Interactive geotarget overlay on cengage.com, which allowed visitors to tailor their experience to their global location.

Contributing to the iChapters Usability Summit, 2007 in Belmont, California – rapid prototyping, heuristic / usability reviews with college and adult education students – was also a responsibility, along with display advertising art direction, design and production and for iChapters online media programs.
