Surgeon Wearing Scrubs

Brain surgery is incredibly hard and everyone knows it. eLearning design—let’s face it—is not brain surgery. It’s worse. It’s just a little more difficult than most people realize. No one just gives brain surgery “a try” without the right education and experience, but just about everyone who has ever been in a classroom and had […]

Occasionally a colleague or customer asks, “Where do you come up with such creative designs?” After basking in the compliment for a few moments, I disappoint them with an honest answer: “I steal them, mostly.” They’re disappointed because they have the wrong idea about what creativity is all about. They have a fuzzy notion of […]

We’ve already made a significant investment, so we’re going to stick with it. I hear these arguments often from companies who have spent boat loads of money on some overpriced, clunky Learning Management System.
