When wrapping up our hands-on Articulate training, attendees are chock-full of new information and are ready to get started. While that’s exciting, there are sometimes concerns about returning to work and actually developing e-Learning without the aid of a trainer.

We find this most common with courses placed on sites with multiple purposes, not just used to host the course. Due to the fact that the course is
