The eLearning SIG was pleased to host our June session with Tom Kuhlmann, author of The Rapid E-Learning Blog.
Tom shared some practical tips on getting the most out of the resources you have to build engaging and interactive elearning content.
Being able to create courses with minimal programming presents many opportunities. But the reality is that there are also challenges. Many developers work with limited budgets and resources. How can they build effective elearning courses with these constraints?
Some topics he discussed included how to:
- Design an effective “getting started” elearning strategy that helps move you (and your subject matter experts) in the right direction.
- Learn to visually align the look and feel with the context of your elearning course
- Apply rapid instructional design models to rework existing content into something more interactive and engaging
Here is a link to the presentation and materials presented.
