I can conduct quality assurance testing of content onscreen and assess it for any problems with functionality or user experience.
I compile and update metadata, filelists and resource reports for digital learning resources. I can upload content to online platforms or export for offline use.
I source, manage, check and format digital assets such as interactive lessons, activities, weblinks (URLs), animations, audio and video. I can manage the production of static assets from content creation to sign off for upload to online or offline platform. 
I liaise with digital producers to ensure content is successfully transformed from page to screen.
I develop workflow and procedures for new products or technology.
I ensure version control is maintained for all digital content.
