why are you good at eLearning?
Dec 30, 2011
Hey guys - I have recently joined the community and have been reading the responses on another thread regarding where we all work and what industry we work in. There were so many different replies, I expected there to be more freelancers/consultants.... but and it was really great to hear from so many people who are lone souls in their respective businesses.... with the heavy burden of responsibility for being the experts at eLearning!!
I mentioned the following within that post, but thought it might be interesting to create my own thread on the subject.. so here goes:
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 (need to improve but not much motivation!)
Would be great to hear your views on this!
