The Rapid E-Learning Blog - 70 Rapid E-Learning Tips

I like to keep things simple so I usually package ideas around three key points.  It all started when I was taught that there are three steps to getting things done:

  • Prepare to do the job. 
  • Do it.
  • Then clean up when you're done.

Did this give me all the details I needed to do the job?  No.  But it did provide some clear steps to guide me.  And that's what I see as my mission with this blog.

I like to provide some simple steps to help you move in the right direction.  Of course there'll be some gaps between the steps, but that's OK.  They'll get filled as you apply what you're learning and gain more experience.

For this week's post I decided to review all of the posts where I provided three steps to do something.  You'll find them below with a summary (and of course loosely organized in three groups).

What three tips do you have?


Just added the info for the free jam session in Atlanta on August 17.  Click here for details.  This one has a sign up list so that I know how many will attend.  I'm also working on a jam session while I'm in Charlotte on December 8.  Still working on the details, but if you're interested in attending let me know.

Here's a list of upcoming conferences and presentations:

  • August 3-4: Madison, WI–Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning. I'll be working the Articulate booth.
  • August 16: Atlanta, GA—ASTD: I'll be doing two sessions, a pre-conference workshop on elearning (3 hours) and the other on elearning graphics.  $149 for the workshop and the conference seems to be a fair price.  I'm bringing my "A" game and some new jokes. Click here for details. Also doing a free jam session on the 17th.
  • September 15: Lincoln, NE (ASTD)—Become a Rapid E-Learning Pro. $80 for an all day workshop is a good value and worth the trip if you're close to Nebraska. I'm also doing a free Articulate jam session while in town.  
  • October 16-19: Las Vegas, NV (CUNA)—Experience Learning Live!  I'll be presenting on building communities and how to build elearning courses with limited resources.
  • October 25: Baton Rouge, LA (ASTD)—Webinar. Details to follow.
  • November 1: Las Vegas, NV (Elearning Guild)—Devlearn. Doing a pre-conference workshop and presentation at the conference.
  • November 12: Los Angeles, CA (ISPI)—Articulate Workshop. Details to follow.
  • November 14: Minneapolis, MN (ASTD)—Articulate Workshop: Build Interactive E-Learning…Rapidly. Click here for updates.
  • December 8: Charlotte, NC (ASTD)—Rapid E-Learning Design.  I'll also be doing a free Articulate jam session while in town.  If you want to attend let me know and I'll send the details as I get them.

2012 is just around the corner.  If you're interested in having me present, now's a good time to connect with me since my schedule fills quickly.
