Melissa Venable

I've been as a full-time writer and editor for OnlineColleges.net since 2011. My background in career counseling, instructional design, and social media management informs articles, reports, and blog posts on topics related to higher education and career development. I also serve on eLearn Magazine's Editorial Board, and am an adjunct instructor at the University of South Florida and Saint Leo University.

I've been fortunate to be mentioned in Inside Higher Ed and NPR's All Tech Considered, and have been published on blogs like Brazen Careerist and Faculty Focus, and in various journals, such as: Tech Trends, Journal of Online Learning and Teaching, and Journal of Interactive Instructional Development.

Education: PhD-Instructional Technology, University of South Florida; MEd-Instructional Psychology and Educational Technology, University of Oklahoma; MSA-Administration, Central Michigan University; BA-Psychology, Wake Forest University
