“You can’t skate what you haven’t ate.” That phrase describes the learning moment that follows a gnarly wipe-out. It’s used humorously to celebrate mistakes and motivate skaters to get back on their boards.
In many ways, the same could be said for building e-learning courses. There’s always risk in learning something new or in asking for help. With a supportive community, you won’t have to go at it alone!
This week, spend some time with branching, sidebar videos, blank slides, using Engage differently or sharing feedback on other users’ projects. Because like skating, so much of what’s learned is through experience and interacting with others and that’s why the Articulate community is so valuable.
To get you started, we highlighted some cool tricks community members shared over the last week:
