My Favorite E-Learning Resources
A couple of weeks ago, I was at ATD TechKnowledge in Las Vegas teaching their Articulate Storyline Certificate program. As with most classes we teach, we have some really good discussions, and I usually follow up with links to some of my favorite e-learning resources we talked about. I find myself referring to some of the same resources over and over again because of how helpful and relevant they are. So I thought I would share them with all of you.
The Articulate Community
There’s almost too much great stuff here to absorb. Here are my favorite resources on their site.
- Articulate E-Learning Examples: This is a great place to get inspiration from seeing other people’s work.
- Articulate Weekly Challenges: Here you can hone your skills by participating in the weekly challenges or just go along for the ride and see what everyone else creates.
- Tom Kuhlmann’s Rapid E-Learning Blog: This blog is always worth a read—even if you aren’t an Articulate user.
- Storyline Player Color Guide: Learn what all the options are in the dialog box for modifying the colors in your course player.
- Storyline HTML5/Mobile App Guide: See what Storyline features work in Flash, HTML5, and the Articulate Mobile Player app.
Here are a few resources from our own website that answer questions that tend to come up in class a lot.
