Yep, it’s true. The year’s officially more than half over. It feels like just a few days ago that we were talking about resolutions! And suddenly here we are, smack in the middle of 2010.
The good news is, if you want to build some really great e-learning this year, there’s still plenty of time. And the even better news? The Articulate community has all sorts of great resources to help you with that.
Rather than do our usual weekly recap today, we thought we’d do a Top 20 list of your favorite community insights & tips from the last six months. The list includes tweets, community tutorials, conversations from the forums, and posts from both this blog and The Rapid E-Learning Blog. If you missed some of these the first time around, now’s a good time to learn something new. And even if there are some things here you’ve already seen, we hope the list jogs your memory & gives you new inspiration to incorporate these insights into your own e-learning projects.
Thanks to everyone in the Articulate community for all the sharing, exchanging, conversing (and in some cases the banter, goofiness, and things that make you go “hmm“) that happen all the time around here. Here’s to even more e-learning awesomeness in the second half of 2010!
