What is The eLearning Designer’s Academy?

I created The eLearning Designer’s Academy to help new eLearning designers become better at what they do: designing amazing eLearning content.

Whether you’re looking to understand the basics of the eLearning development process or you’re looking to learn how to use Articulate Storyline; I’ve created a growing library of courses, which you can use to develop your skills, grow your career, and of course, create better eLearning content.

Once you enroll in a course from The eLearning Designer’s Academy, you’ll discover that each of my courses are jam-packed with practical tips, practice files, and resources that you can apply immediately to your next eLearning project. With hours of helpful video and text-based content, my online courses are 100% self-paced and mobile-ready.

If you have a question you’d like to ask me or an idea you’d like to share with others, each of my courses includes discussion boards, which you can access from any lesson. Finally, after you’ve finished a course, you’ll receive a completion certificate, which you can print or share on your LinkedIn profile.

Getting Started with The eLearning Development Process

Between juggling your stakeholders and subject matter experts, collecting and organizing your learning content, and designing and developing your actual eLearning course, it can be a little overwhelming trying to figure out where to start. This is especially true if you’re new to eLearning.

My Getting Started with the eLearning Development Process online course teaches you everything you need to know to get started with eLearning development, and delivers it in an engaging and mobile responsive format.

Based on my book, The eLearning Designer’s Handbook, and the insights I’ve gained from helping others master the eLearning development process for more than ten years, this online course will give you the skills you can apply immediately to your next eLearning project.

Each section is packed with interactive lessons, pro tips, explainer videos, helpful visuals, and insights from me in my own words.

With this online course, you’ll discover how to work with your stakeholders to plan your eLearning project, how to collect and organize your content into a storyboard, how to build a prototype and develop your course, and finally, how to review your course with your subject matter experts, and deliver it to your learners.


Getting Started with Articulate Storyline

With over 8 hours of learning content, spread over 90 instructional videos, this online course will show you everything you need to know to start building interactive eLearning content with Articulate Storyline. Using the practice files I’ve created, you’ll learn how to use Storyline by building a sample course from beginning to end.

Starting with an exploration of the Storyline interface, you’ll explore how to create a new project. From there, you’ll explore how to add scenes and slides, how to add and animate on-screen text, images, and graphics, and how to work with audio and video.

You’ll also learn how to create interactive content with buttons, triggers, and slide layers. And finally, you’ll explore how to create quiz questions, how to record screen simulations, and how to publish your completed course.


Building Advanced Interaction in Articulate Storyline

Once you understand the basics of how to use Articulate Storyline, you’ll quickly want to start taking your skill to the next level by using some of the more advanced features Storyline has to offer.

In this online course, I’ll show you how you can start building advanced interactions in Articulate Storyline. Using a sample course I’ve developed, you’ll learn how to use advanced features, like variables and conditional triggers to further your design abilities in Storyline.

Starting with an overview of the different types of variables and how to work with variables in Storyline, you’ll explore how to create personalized eLearning, by letting your learners enter their names and selecting a character with text variables. You’ll also learn how to create custom drag-and-drop interactions and how to perform calculations with number variables, and how to create a custom course menu with true / false variables. Finally, you’ll learn how to create a randomized branching scenario by generating random number variables.
