Being a Beginner

Got a question?   A reflection blog about Instructional Design theories, ideas, and projects.

On Twitter and pretty much every other social media site, I'm @ouelletteda

You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner.
If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you.

Yarrr! In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day I present a screenshot of a sample eLearning course in a cool new tool I learned about today: Articulate Storyline. (Click the image to go on a safety management systems treasure hunt, mateys!)
But discovering the software isn’t the only cool thing that happened today. I was asked this morning by my favorite coworker to join a really big project: rebuilding our eLearning courses and making sure they are CPE-credit compliant! Talk about a DREAM PROJECT! Especially since it falls outside my “regular duties.”
I’m so excited to get some on-the-ground eLearning experience, from working with content development vendors (personal SMEs for me as an ID student), proposals and contracts, CPE certifications, all the important acronyms, and hopefully turning this “need” product into a suite of “wants” later down the line.
