About Dr. Michael Allen

Dr. Michael Allen, godfather of e-learning, has been a pioneer in the e-learning industry since 1975. With 45+ years of professional, academic, and corporate experience in teaching, developing, and marketing interactive learning and performance support systems, Dr. Allen has led teams of doctorate-level specialists in learning research, instructional design, computer-based training, and human engineering. 

Dr. Allen has defined unique methods of instructional design and development to provide Meaningful, Motivational, and Memorable learning experiences through "true" cognitive interactivity. He developed the advanced design and development approaches used at Allen Interactions, including CCAF-based design and the SAM process for iterative, collaborative development. 

Dr. Michael Allen was the Director of Advanced Educational Systems research and development of Control Data Corporation's famous PLATO computer-based education system used around the world. He was the founder and former Chairman of Authorware, Inc. and the primary architect of Authorware Professional, which was based on

Dr. Allen's extensive research on creativity and problem-solving. It became a groundbreaking authoring tool combining power and ease of use, and ultimately the industry standard. Authorware, Inc. merged with Macromind/ Paracomp to become Macromedia, which was later acquired by Adobe.
