When you think about the skills an e-learning professional needs, you may find that some of these skills come to mind first:

  • Good with authoring tools
  • Familiar with learning technology
  • Understands instructional design and learning theory
  • Writes good copy
  • Flair for visual design

While all of these are important, there are some other, under-the-radar skills that can make or break your e-learning career: things like being a good project manager, having consultative skills, managing your time (and your business if you’re a freelancer), and communicating effectively with others.

So, how do your professional skills stack up?
