Do you remember the first course you built? Whether it was last week or ten years ago, chances are you went about things a little differently on the next course.
That’s the great thing about about e-learning: no matter how much you learn, there’s always something new to discover. And that’s what E-learning Heroes is all about. Each week the Articulate community shares the best tips, tricks, and insights that will help you design better e-learning.
This week, Tom and David are in Virginia. Tuesday (4/17) we’re presenting a full-day workshop on rapid e-learning and interactivity. Wednesday (4/18), we’re hosting a free Articulate jam session. Jam sessions are informal meet-ups where you can ask questions, receive feedback on your projects and even get a sneak peek of Storyline.
Enoy your week, E-learning Heroes!
