Hi all.

 

I always enjoy looking at profiles to see if contributers have listed where they're from - geographically and industry - not everyone lists this info though.

 

So - what kind of industries do you work in? I'm curious to know what areas have embraced e-Learning the most. I've noticed a lot of posts from people in the Healthcare sector here.

 

I've mostly worked in telecommunications, and implemented e-Learning frameworks (off the shelf and customised) in a couple of those companies. Now I'm in the world of insurance, and creating customised courses here.

 

Cheers,

Sarah.

Hi all,

 

This is just so interesting to hear about where you're all from, and what you do. Sounds like collectively we're an awesome bunch of people with a huge variety of knowledge and experience!

 

Sarah,

Well said, Sarah!

 

I credit all the elearning heroes for my recent promotion from trainer to a new position in our agency - Communications Coordinator. I now have a huge list of project to create and convert to online training with an emphasis on integrating social media. Whew!

 

I'm currently alone in my position at Utah's State Tax Commission.

 

A massive thanks to all of you for helping me get here!!!

Wow!! So interesting to hear all the different replies! And great to hear from so many of us who are lone souls in our respective businesses.... with the heavy burden of responsibility for being the experts at eLearning!!!!

 

Ok... so I would like to ask another question.. I see becoming a "successful rapid eLearning author" as requiring skills in 4 main areas:

 

1) training (understanding the theory of learning) 

2) technology/software (being able to use tools such as Articulate and Captivate etc.)

3) design (designing pretty slides and graphics)

4) SME (knowing about the subjects you are teaching)

 

  • First of all, do you agree with that breakdown?
  • and secondly, on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being poor and 10 being excellent), how would you rate yourself in each of these 4 areas?

I'll start!! For me - obviously modest  

 

1) training - 7

2) technology/software - 5

3) design - 6

4) SME - 3

Hello Sarah,

 

I am a trainer, designer & developer (you ought to see the cool hat I got with the job) for the IT department of C-Store company located in NC.  Our help desk is a couple years old now, and I am working on developing e-learning material for both new hire and continuing training.  For me, this has been a fantastic opportunity as I have made a career change to get here.  I like what I am doing, but at times wish there were just a couple more folks to spread the wealth.  The good news, I have no shortage of work for the next few years!

Thats an interesting post Anthony... my ratings:

 

1) training - 6

2) technology/software - 8

3) design - 8

4) SME - 2  (we have a different SME for each of the course that we develop. so we really dont know much about the subject in the beginning. Of course once we prepare the course, we know quite a lot)

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for posting this question to us all. It has been interesting reading the postings! Especially for those of us who are new to elearning and new to Articulate.

I work for the State of Wisconsin, Department of Corrections, and am one of two full-time elearning designers in our Training Center. We also have two classroom based training academies (probation and parole agents and correctional officers). Our little elearning unit produces online training modules on a variety of topics.

I have been in this position for less than a year and I can’t say enough how appreciative I am of the Articulate Community! All of the helpful tutorials, templates and active forum participation has been a godsend to me trying to get up to speed with this software.

My background, and career path, has all been in Human Resources. I have 16 years of HR public sector experience, mostly dealing with employee relations, grievances, disciplinary actions, appeals, performance management, equal employment opportunity, harassment  and discrimination investigations, etc.   I am really enjoying this transition from dealing with difficult people problems all day to dealing with fun and creative training problems all day.  I can see why anyone who enters the elearning world would never want to leave! I am having so much fun!

I work for an engineering consulting firm in Calgary, Canada. I am also an in-house e-learning person.

 

Prior to that, I worked for universities all over the world.

 

I agree with Anthony's list. Perhaps I would add "understanding of the business needs/goals".

I work in IT for a brokerage company in Chicago, Illinois, and am using Articulate to create training material for the software platforms we use in IT (SharePoint  2010 and JIRA 4.4, principally). I'm in process of redefining my job description which I suppose will end up being titled something like Technical Communication Coordinator.Here's how I'd score myself:

 

1) 5

2) 10

3) 2 (though I have good design sense and make good choices)

4) 8

Hey, let's keep this thread alive. I'm finding the variety really interesting.

 

I'm located in Lehi, Utah (near Salt Lake) and just started working for the Larry H. Miller group - they own the Jazz (NBA team), Energy Solutions Arena (where the Jazz play and a concert venue, etc.), a bunch of car dealerships, Fanzz Sports Apparel stores, Miller Speedway, a bunch of MegaPlex theaters and various other companies. Quite a wide variety of holdings, all of which need e-learning as part of their training program.

 

Previously, I worked for PMI, child company of National Marketing and Learning, where I led a team that produced hundreds of lessons for e-learning students around the world, including several universities and high schools.

Hi there, My current employer is a tiny drug and alcohol education charity in Aylesbury in the UK.  We couldn't find enough affordable resources in our specialist area to take into the classrooms with us (primary and secondary) so we decided to make our own.  I did a bit of web design and learnt Flash for that so made use of it to create some simple interactive content for the school Smartboards.  This was successful so it spurred us on to have a go at creating e-learning for teacher training in how to deliver drug awareness lessons.  Now I'm hooked so look forward to doing some freelance work when our charity's funding comes to an end. I'm quite new to Articulate and am learning how to put courses on an LMS so find this site fantastically rich in help and advice.
