In the past, I’ve referenced a number of instructional designers who are active in the community where they share all sorts of free downloads, examples, and answer questions.
These are peers worth following.
Melissa is a passionate learner and actively shares what she learns (often while she learns). She’s also been a presenter at a few of our Articulate Roadshows.
Here’s a good series she did on getting started with xAPI and Storyline.
Years ago Kevin won an Articulate Guru award. From there here’s built quite a presence in the e-learning industry. Many of you probably know him from his iconic Nugget head character.
If you want to learn how he comes up with ideas and builds his courses, check out his recent series on constructing a gamified module.
Zsolt is a like a zsolt of lightning especially when it comes to talking gamification and how to engage learners. He has all sorts of really neat ideas and hacks to help you learn more. One of the most original and creative people in the industry.
Check out this example of alternatives to multiple choice questions. Pretty cool.
Nick shares all sorts of cool tips and tricks with his unique brand of humor. His site has lots of good tutorial videos and advanced tips.
Matthew’s nickname should be the “E-learning Thunder from Down Under.” He presents really organized and detailed tutorials and tips in his blog.
Look at this post on how to use Google Fonts with a variable.
David always shares clever tips and examples. I recall sitting at the airport on my way to London and spending a couple of hours trying to deconstruct one of his demos for the weekly challenges.
Here’s a video where he shares a way to mask content using the scroll panel feature. And of course, his review of the original Storyline 0.
Here’s one he recently shared that’s gotten lots of play: how to add a print button to the course player [video].
Ron is CLO for Yukon where he manages and conducts a lot of Articulate training. Ron is also a fixture in our Articulate Live webinars where he shares all sorts of cool tips and tricks.
If you’re an Articulate 360 subscriber you don’t want to miss those Friday Quick Tips & Tricks sessions. Here’s a recent tutorial Ron posted where he answered a training question: Why Does My Custom Menu Lose Track of My Progress?
To the ones above, thanks for what you do to support the community and industry. I know that there are a lot more really talented developers worth mentioning. Feel free to give them props in the comments section below.
