Sharing Lessons Learned
One of the great things about this community is all the great things that I've learned from others. TONS of great how to's and fabulous conversations. In addition to all the great stuff that works, one thing I think we often forget to share that can also be very valuable is the lessons learned we all have accumulated. (That's a much better sounding way of saying 'all the stuff that did NOT work)
So how about it? What are some of the things you've done or seen others do that did not work and why didn't they work? I'll try to start things off with one of my own.
One of my lessons learned is to put all external links "outside the course". James Kingsly (@onEnterFrame)just did a great screenr on one method for doing this and I have put them in an embedded html file via a web object.
The reason for doing that is that when the links are the only thing that change you don't have to republish the course.
Looking forward to hearing what thing you've tried but didn't work.
