Product Description

Product Description

As you sit here reading this description, there are probably several things you wish your "present" self could go back and tell your "younger" self about life. I'm right there with you and that's why I wrote this book. These are the things I would have told my younger self about elearning and creating elearning courses. They would have saved me valuable time, money and a lot of frustration...

Here are just a few of the things you will learn when you buy this book:
  • How the Iphone can make people love your elearning courses. Steve Jobs spent years developing this technique.
  • Why style guides are crucial to the success of an elearning course. People trust consistency and style guides provide that.
  • Objectives vs. goals. Do you know the difference? 
  • How your favorite websites can give your elearning a huge boost. You look at these sites every day for a reason; use that same reason to get people to love your courses. 
  • Why screen count doesn't matter to the learner. If you dazzle them with content, the length of the course won't matter. 
  • How subject matter experts can actually hurt your courses. They are valuable sources of information but their information can sometimes be too much!
  • Why your kid's comic books can jumpstart your elearning courses. Comic books have a magical ability to capture our imagination; use that same technique to capture the imagination of your learners. 
And much more...These tidbits of advice can be used by any person who has ever considered creating elearning or has ever been involved in the elearning process. Follow my advice and watch your elearning flourish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! 29 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The little book was very useful. It provided information about the topic in a concise and effective manner. Although it was not meant to be a comprehensive piece of work, a few more pointers to the info provided would have made it more than excellent. But as I said it was effective for its purpose. The best thing I liked about it was that each tip was on one page. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaking great book! 14 Sep 2013

I just finished reading this book. Believe it or not, I read the whole thing on my iPhone. This book is a very, very quick read. As a matter of fact it will only take you less than a couple hours to read everything in it. If that.

The reason why this book resonated with me is because I recognized a lot of the scenarios the author included. Yes… A few of the things he mentioned also happened to me. Most of my experience comes from the corporate training world. The author apparently also comes from that world. It is a no BS, no – nonsense world.

I recommend all instructional designer types or soon to be instructional designers to get this book. You will definitely use some of the things the author lists here. It is a book worth reading. Go get it now!
