Hand-picked Resources to Help You Become an Instructional Designer

Hand-picked Resources to Help You Become an Instructional Designer | The e-Learning Designer | Scoop.it
With the coming of the Internet, gathering information on almost everything under the sun has become easier than ever before. Just type a few words and Google will throw up tons of information. For instance, there seems to be as many web pages on instructional designing strategies and Photoshop tutorials as there are eLearning designers.

But there's a catch. You still have to click open the websites, scroll through them, and read up pages of text to fish out information that is relevant to your needs. It is easy to get lost in the minefield of information that the Internet is. What is scarier is that not all websites house authentic information. So how can you find what you are searching for quickly and easily? How do you make sure that you learn instructional designing theories and skills only from authentic sources?

We have put together a list of Web resources to help you get hold of the most comprehensive and authentic sources of information on eLearning and instructional design. Here they are:

How To Create Engaging ELearning | The e-Learning Designer | Scoop.it

"Creating online courses today is easy. If you know how to work Microsoft PowerPoint, then you can slap together an elearning course pretty quickly.

 

Creating effective and engaging elearning content is a little more difficult. People pursue advanced degrees on the subject, attend workshops, and work for years in the field so as to become a better instructional designer."

Storyline 2 vs. Captivate 8

Storyline 2 vs. Captivate 8 | The e-Learning Designer | Scoop.it
As an eLearning professional, I know that choosing a software platform can be difficult and even confusing. I have used both Captivate and Storyline (multiple versions of each) and have been curious about ZebraZapps and other platforms that seem to have interesting features. It can be difficult to really find information that compares the various tools.

Lucky for you, dear eLearning professional who is trying to pick between Storyline and Captivate (that totally describes you, right?), I am embarking on a journey to make your life a little easier. This summer I am taking a class that focuses around Adobe Captivate (version 8). I am also a regular user (and superfan!) of Articulate Storyline 2.

So, I decided to try and check my bias at the door and do a series of posts comparing the two systems. I will also be adding to this post along the way as a kind of master document. If you find this is helpful, or have questions about particular features, please comment below and let me know!
