January 2nd, 2014 E-Learning

tincancalamityresolvedIt is officially the first day of the new year, and millions of people all over the world are making resolutions for 2014. As you start o make your resolutions (assuming you are one to do so), I would encourage you to create one that is related to elearning.

But what does that even mean?

Well, it largely depends on your background and involvement in the elearning industry. If your profession is something else, then perhaps your resolution could be to take at least one elearning course from a popular MOOC platform that is related to your career.

At the very least, you can add your newly learned skills to your resume.

Or, perhaps you are actively involved in the elearning industry as an instructional designer. If so, there are a variety of resolutions you could make related to your craft.

For instance, perhaps you could commit to learning a new rapid elearning development tool. There are many out there besides just Articulate and Captivate.

Maybe you want something more tangible for your resolution. If so, it might make sense to dedicate 2014 to obtaining an elearning certification – a great way to establish yourself as an expert and to set yourself apart from your peers.

Speaking of being an expert. Perhaps this is the year that you begin to monetize your knowledge! Creating (and selling) elearning courses has never been easier, and we happen to have a free course to introduce you to the entire concept!

Whether it is learning a new skill or starting a business venture, adding an elearning resolution can certainly benefit you both personally and professionally in 2014.

Hi Justin,
Thank you for all the excellent info you provide on your blog. I am a complete novice to this field, but am extremely interested in pursuing it. To that end, I have a very specific question: is there any one particular software program you would suggest to get started with on my own, before pursing a formal instruction / certification? …just the name of any one you would suggest?

Thank you so very much for your time; I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
Happy New Years

Hi Sam-
Thanks for the note, and happy new year to you too. If are just getting into the industry, then start with Articulate Storyline or Articulate Studio ’13. Both are very user friendly and have their roots in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Thank you very much for the info, Justin…I really appreciate the assistance.
