I was delighted to see this month’s Learning Circuits Big Question: Where are the Examples of eLearning? It gives me the chance to highlight some of the amazing content our customers have created, along with some of the cool elearning we’ve put together with our tools about our tools.
The crÃ¨me de’ le’ crÃ¨me of elearning courses created in 2007 with Articulate tools are those highlighted in our 1st Annual Guru Awards contest. At the ASTD conference earlier this month, we all found ourselves showing off the Gold Medal Winner since it’s such engaging elearning. It was even featured on the popular Lifehacker blog back in March:
You’ll find a collection of 5 unique examples in this blog entry, including this one from BigInnovations.com, which is more marketing-focused, but should spark some ideas about using a similar approach for e-learning courses:
When we introduced Articulate Online to the market, we launched with it 30 tutorials — each in the 1- to 3-minute range — on how to use each feature of the new product. We continue to receive very positive feedback from customers and lots of “Wow! How’d you do that?” questions.
Recently, Tom posted a series of blog entries that include some examples of thinking outside the PowerPoint box and leveraging branching when building courses with rapid elearning tools. You can find links to some more great examples in each of these posts in the series:
- Yes, Rapid E-Learning Can Do Branching
- Click & Read E-learning Courses Don’t Need to Be Boring
- Curiosity Might Have Killed the Cat, But Learners Love It
Finally, our most popular forum thread — with more than 23,000 views, this is obviously a really hot topic — is called Examples of Articulate in Action, which is chock-full of links to other great customer examples of elearning.
