Hi, I am new to the field of Instructional Design. I am currently doing a certificate course from University of Wisconsin. I have been a teacher for almost 4 years now and decided for a career change. Am I eligible for this meet? My email address is kksharika@live.com

Thank you,

Sharika Kurumathur

Hi, Kate!  Yup, we've got you on the list.  Expect to receive a survey from us very shortly.  Please take the time to answer it to give us some early direction and also encourage knowledge and experience sharing among members.

We haven't scheduled the date of the first meeting in September yet.  But I'd expect that shortly when Chuck gets back in town.

BEST!

P.S. We're up to 57 folks with an additional 13 folks invited who have not accepted the invite to the Google Group yet. 

Because of issues we're having, along with some of the invitees, we're looking at an alternative to using Google Groups.

For those who might be interested in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN) Articulate User Group, please complete this membership survey before September 9, 2015:

Just by completing the survey, we'll be sure to include you as a member and keep you informed.  Just be sure to include your name and e-mail address in the survey.

The responses to the survey will help us in forming the group and gauge member's needs and preferences, as well as begin knowledge sharing and help us possibly identify speakers, topics, and resources.

Our kick-off meeting is still scheduled for late September.

Hi all,

 

Just to clarify it looks like there are two forms - 

 

Articulate has put together this form to help gather information from folks in the community so that we could help you organize meet ups. 

 

The other form that Gerry shared is one he created, as far as I know, so I'll let him weigh in on any specifics of that. 

And correction, there is a user group/meeting listing here. Boost your Skills and Connect with E-Learning Heroes in Your Town

Thanks, All!

No we have not had our first meeting yet.  Get things going is harder than it may look.

We had hoped the first meeting would have been last month but that did not pan out.  We'll be announcing the schedule of the first few meetings shortly.  We have a central site located that should be good for our first few meetings.

Part of the problem is that both Chuck Nemer and I have been so darn busy lately with our separate client projects and other matters.

Also, many folks did not like our using Google Groups to organize things so we've been looking at something else.

No, the survey was not marketing.  Sorry anyone felt that way.  We'll be sharing the results at our first meeting, among other things.  Lot of good info sharing.

If anyone NEW is interested in joining this group (and have not expressed interest before), please use this form.

Hi, Al -- Thanks for reaching out, and as Leslie had mentioned above, if you'd like to reach the original poster, Chuck Nemer, to inquire further, you are welcome to do so using the 'Contact Me' link on his profile page. 

And, I will reach out to one of our Community Managers to see if they might be able to share information on whether or not a St. Paul group became a reality, and if not, she may be able to help you get one off the ground! 

In the meantime, you may also want to check out the following:
