And, they followed up with customers to gather feedback once the product made it on the shelves. Think about your favorite website or mobile app.

What Will eLearning Look Like in the Year 2066?

eLearning Brothers

I grew up watching re-runs of a popular cartoon called The Jetsons. If you haven’t watched ever watched it, you should check out an episode. But for now, let it suffice to say the original 1960s storyline is about a family of four (the Jetsons) that lives “in a futuristic utopia of elaborate robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms, and whimsical inventions.”. As a kid, I remember how watching The Jetsons sparked my imagination: What if someday we had flying cars? Vacuums that were robots?

Three Secrets to Memorable eLearning Experiences

eLearning Brothers

What is eLearning, really? For the last ten years, I’ve developed training in some capacity. I’ve used everything from Authorware to PowerPoint to create materials. I remember a couple years ago a co-worker asked me what software program converted content to eLearning. I laughed to myself–as if it’s just a matter of clicking a button and an eLearning course magically appears. In casual conversations I find that people don’t understand the true purpose of eLearning.

Developer Diaries: A Healthier Developer

eLearning Brothers

When working from home, Instructional Designers and Developers can easily fall into a routine that involves a lot less getting ready for the work day and a lot more getting straight to work – which can be problematic for many of us who call home their office. For myself, I know I am guilty of rolling out of bed, letting the dogs out, then promptly getting to it. The coffee gets made as I check emails from my phone, and I’ll admit it: the teeth sometimes won’t get brushed until noon or later.

How to Create a Custom Review Results Slide in Articulate Storyline

eLearning Brothers

I love the versatility of Articulate Storyline 2 and the ability to forego the default options for navigation in favor of truly custom courseware.

As super as Articulate Storyline 2 is for eLearning development, there are a few things left to be desired.
