Newly designed portal provides valuable resources for e-learning developers
New York, NY -- Feb 1, 2011 - Articulate, the global leader in rapid e-learning software, has launched E-Learning Heroes -- an online source of e-learning resources and community-driven support for anyone interested in improving their e-learning skills.
The site is available at http://community.articulate.com and registration is free.
E-Learning Heroes fosters a collaborative online experience by empowering e-learning developers to share and learn from each other. Its vibrant and active online forums provide a venue for exchanging practical advice and tips on all things e-learning. Members can also access an extensive library of screencast tutorials (created using Articulate's free screencasting tool -- Screenr -- available at http://screenr.com), as well as hundreds of downloadable course assets such as templates, job aids, icons, images, and more. Articulate contributed assets, provided in the download section, can be used by members in their e-learning projects without restriction and free of charge. Blogs within the site feature a continual source of fresh insights and e-learning tips from leaders in the community.
"We're thrilled to openly provide such a diverse and valuable collection of e-learning resources," said Tom Kuhlmann, vice president of Community for Articulate. "We've created the site to enable both seasoned e-learning professionals and those just getting started with e-learning to design and build better courses. Many of the resources are helpful to any e-learning designer, whether or not they use Articulate software."
This philosophy of openness and collaboration is an extension of Articulate's ongoing success with community-focused initiatives, such as Tom Kuhlman's wildly successful Rapid E-Learning Blog (which now has over 71,000 subscribers), the Articulate Word of Mouth Blog, and the former Articulate Community Forums, whose 200,000 members are transitioning over to the new E-Learning Heroes forums.
Kuhlmann concludes, "E-Learning Heroes is all about empowered e-learning. We're hopeful that our community members enjoy and benefit from the newly designed site. We're also looking forward to crowning some new Articulate Superheroes (users who receive special designation because of their helpfulness and willingness to support the community) along the way."
