The Rapid E-Learning Blog - rapid elearning 101

Rapid elearning can mean many things.  For some it means easy tools that let you
build elearning courses without special programming skills.  For others, it means being empowered to quickly share your expertise with others.  Ultimately, it’s usually about getting the right information to people at the right time while operating at the speed of business.

Rapid E-Learning 101

If you’re just getting started with elearning, this series brings you up-to-speed. You’ll learn the basics of rapid elearning and how best to get your project off the ground.

How to Get Started with E-Learning

I get a lot of emails asking how to get started with elearning.  Subscribing to this blog is a good start.  But I do have a few more suggestions.  There are three core areas you should focus on: instructional design, visual design, and performance consulting.  These areas will help build effective courses that look good.  And you’ll know how to build the right type of course.

But the real tip is to practice what you’re learning, even if it’s simple in the beginning.  Create and maintain a portfolio; and then connect with other people in the industry.  The following posts cover the essentials. In some of them I recommend good elearning books and other resources.
