The eLearning Guild has just released a free eBook titled 162 Tips and Tricks for Working with e-Learning Tools. The Guild describes the eBook as follows:
The eLearning Guild asked members for their favorite tips for using software for the creation of e-Learning. Members could submit tips in any or all of the following five categories:
- Courseware authoring and e-Learning development tools
- Rapid e-Learning tools
- Simulation tools
- Media tools
- Combining and deploying authoring tools
A total of 122 members responded to the survey, contributing 162 usable tips. As with our previous Tips eBook efforts, the tips range in length from one-sentence ideas all the way up to page-long discourses. Some are very basic in nature, and others are quite advanced. We have not edited the tips in any way, other than to correct spelling – everything you see in this book is in the tipsters’ own words. As a result, these tips will be useful to any designer or developer looking for best practices to incorporate into their own production process.
I submitted several tips for this eBook; you can see them listed on page 14. I’ve only skimmed the rest of the eBook, but I like what I see so far. Check it out!
