How did you get into e-learning?
Maybe this isn't the right place for this question but this forum is full of people from all different fields, I thought it would be a good place to ask:
How did you get into e-learning design/development?
It seems that this isn't a career path that people intentionally go into and it's not something you can learn in college (at least not most colleges). It also seems like a lot of folks come to e-learning with a wide and varied background with lots of skills in their tool belts.
I definitely stumbled into it by working for a company that offers cyber security training materials, and as companies stared expecting more CBT/online stuff, the company had to change and grow their inventory. We started with Articulate Presenter 5 and they sat me down and said, "Figure this out!" I have a digital media and graphic design background but have become the resident e-learning expert and work with our LMS team to troubleshoot - two things I never expected to or set out to do.
So what about you? How did you fall down this rabbit hole? :)
