About King’s Online

King’s Online is part of the new School for Professional and Continuing Education, it was formed in 2015 and develops a range of fully online courses and programmes. The team is embarking on an ambitious growth strategy and this is one of several new roles being advertised. You’ll be joining us at an exciting time as we seek to redefine online education and realise King’s strategic ambition of being the leading provider of online and blended learning by 2029. 

The role is primarily based at King’s Strand Campus though you may be required to travel to other campuses on occasion. As part of King’s trial of hybrid working, all team members can work remotely for part of the week if they wish. 

About the role

Our E-Learning Content Developers are a critical part of the team, taking the lead in building content based on weekly outlines and content documentation produced by our Learning Designers, and working closely with our Visual Designers, who will produce the assets and animations to go with them. The E-Learning Content Developers will work primarily in our virtual learning environment, building and uploading learning activities and content pages as well as resolving technical issues. They are experts in the configuration and use of activity and content types, and confident in taking decisions on how to lay out content within overall user experience design system guidelines. They should also be comfortable using photoshop and illustrator to edit basic graphics where necessary.

With technical expertise and confidence to back up their work, they will be able to advise on best practice in e-learning development - and use of the VLE - to enhance the learning experience of our students; they will also proactively work to find improvements to our workflows and product innovations.

Although supported by project managers and their line manager, they will be ultimately responsible for managing their workload and balancing priorities across multiple projects. They are able to work both independently and collaboratively, bringing a self-motivated, results-orientated and ‘can-do’ attitude to their work. They are willing to learn from their colleagues, pass knowledge on to others, and develop the relevant formal and informal networks to enhance their learning opportunities.
