Show Your E-Learning Work with Your New and Improved Member Profiles #108

E-Learning Heroes Profiles #108: Challenge | Recap

Whether you’re looking for e-learning work or just looking to build your personal brand, showing your work is one of the best moves you can make. To help promote the amazing projects you create, we recently made some updates to member profile pages to feature everything you share in an engaging, portfolio-style layout.

Updated Member Profile Pages

The first thing you’ll notice is the redesigned profile pages. The layout is gorgeous and showcases everything you’ve shared in the community.

This includes the downloads, examples, and even articles you’ve posted in the community. Any Discussions you’ve started will also be featured using the new layout.

But the killer feature is the ability to now upload your own course examples, downloads, and courses to your member profile pages.

Add Your E-Learning Examples

When you’re logged into Heroes, you’ll see the option to Add a Course to your profile page.

Add Your E-Learning Examples

Don’t let the word “course” fool you. A course can be any e-learning example, download, screencast, or article you’d like to share.

This feature allows you to highlight your best e-learning work and get it in front of the largest e-learning community in the world. Articulate is committed to helping you become successful and that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to build up your e-learning portfolio by adding your work (courses, examples, screencasts, and downloads) to your E-Learning Heroes profile page.

After you’ve added your work, take a screenshot of your profile page and share the link in the comments. I’ll help promote your page over the next week and feature your screenshot in next week’s recap.

Hi Cecilia, I noticed that you have a few examples in 16:9 format (which I like to use too). Here’s how I resized mine, using Photoshop, so that you can see the entire slide when you upload it to the profile: 1. Open the 16:9 image in Photoshop 2. Choose the menu item “Image” > “Image Size”. Change the width only to 360 pixels and make sure the “Contrain Proportions” checkbox is clicked. Your image will then have a width:height ratio of 360:202 or similar. Click “OK”. 3. Choose the menu item “Image” > “Canvas Size”. Change the height to 290 pixels so that your new canvas size now has a width:height ratio of 360:290. Where it says “Anchor”, make sure the dot is in the middle square, so that your image will appear in the middle of the canvas. You can change the canvas extension color... Expand
