When I first started in eLearning, the process of creating an eLearning course was a total mystery to me. And at the time, I thought I was the only one who felt that way. I thought I was hanging onto this dirty little secret that, if revealed, would uncover me as a total fraud—and unqualified imposter.

What I didn’t know, at the time, was that most new eLearning developers feel this way. Over the last decade, after working with countless folks new to the eLearning industry, I’ve learned that mastering the eLearning development process is just plain hard…but it doesn’t have to be.

And that’s why I wrote this book.
