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. So, let’s visit the common “as heard in training” question: “What resources do I have available now that the training is over?”
As with anything new, we all appreciate support and guidance as we get started. Luckily for new (and even experienced) developers, the Articulate tools are incredibly supported. There are so many fantastic resources available to help get the ball rolling and keep it going in the future! Let’s take a look at a few of our favorites.
Why not start with the best resource of them all: Articulate’s vast community, the e-Learning Heroes?! Articulate’s passion is e-Learning, which makes the Heroes community an extremely active and helpful place! Whether you’re using the handy search feature to pinpoint specific topics or simply browsing for inspiration, you’re covered.
Here are just a few areas we love in the Heroes community:
- e-Learning 101 to get you started
- Discussions with the Articulate team and developers like you and I all around the Articulate tools and developing better e-Learning
- e-books on all topics from project management to accessibility
- Take part in the Challenges or explore other designers’ submissions
- Gather new ideas from professional e-Learning examples
- Get a head start with free downloads, sorted by specific tool, course asset, or design
Tip: You’ll get the most out of this resource if you join the Heroes community! Creating a profile gives you the chance to truly interact with the support and opportunities available.
