With the Olympics around the corner, now’s the perfect time to reflect on your own training plan. No, I’m not talking about the 200m individual medley. Instead, I’m talking about practicing e-learning.
Whether you’re just getting started or an e-learning guru, there’s always room for practice. So, how does one practice e-learning? Lots of different ways!
If you’re a new user, sprint over to the Articulate forums and introduce yourself. Reach for some practice files to learn a new tool. Toss out some helpful feedback on another user’s first project. Record your first Screenr tutorial. Help a designer use variables to hurdle a course design challenge. Relay some advice for working with subject matter experts. Serve up a free template for others to use. Or, just congratulate a fellow user on a recent success.
