eLearning professionals are expected to take on a wide variety of very different roles. Sometimes you’re the eLearning developer, graphics designer, narrator, or videographer. Other times you may act as the project manager, researcher, or even the department’s tech guru. It’s no surprise that this can be a daunting and sometimes scary prospect for those new to the industry, leaving them feeling insecure, overwhelmed, and unsure of where to begin.

In this session, you’ll learn 10 fundamental tips and strategies that can help any new eLearning professional survive their first year in the L&D field. These practical tips will range from visual design to content development, project management, and more. You’ll spend time learning about each tip in detail and then see specific examples of how they’ve been successfully applied in real life.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Ten tips to help you become a more confident and successful eLearning professional
