Christy Tucker

My name is Christy Tucker, and my career has always been about helping people learn in one way or another. Building on my background as a teacher and trainer, I now work “behind the scenes” to help design and develop learning solutions.

I have been working in online learning since 2004, and I have a successful track record in corporate, non-profit, and higher education environments. I have created over 60 online courses, coached new instructional designers, and managed numerous projects. You can see my detailed work history on LinkedIn.

I started Syniad Learning in 2011 to focus on helping clients who want to move from just “knowing” to “doing,” improving performance and changing behavior through online training.


Since 2006, I have been blogging at Experiencing E-Learning. This is where I share my own learning experiences and reflections. It’s important to me to give back to the learning and development community by sharing what I learn.


I am a Certified Developer of Training and Learning Methods. I have also earned an GPS badge (Instructional Design: Goal- or Problem-Based Scenarios). These certifications are issued by the Hale Associates Center and endorsed by ISPI. The badge is a gold level certification, meaning I received an outstanding rating in at least 7 of the 9 standards in a double blind peer review.

Where did the name Syniad Learning come from?

Syniad is Welsh for “idea.” Oliver Wendell Holmes said that a mind “once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” What new ideas can we explore to stretch learners’ minds?
