Publisher's Summary

As you sit here reading this description, there are probably several things you wish your present self could go back and tell your younger self about life. I'm right there with you and that's why I wrote this book. These are the things I would have told my younger self about e-learning and creating e-learning courses. They would have saved me valuable time, money and a lot of frustration....
Here are just a few of the things you will learn when you buy this book:

How the iPhone can make people love your e-learning courses. Steve Jobs spent years developing this technique.
Why style guides are crucial to the success of an e-learning course. People trust consistency and style guides provide that.
Objectives vs. goals: Do you know the difference?
How your favorite Web sites can give your e-learning a huge boost. You look at these sites every day for a reason; use that same reason to get people to love your courses....
Why screen count doesn't matter to the learner. If you dazzle them with content, the length of the course won't matter.
How subject-matter experts can actually hurt your courses. They are valuable sources of information but their information can sometimes be too much!
Why your kid's comic books can jumpstart your e-learning courses. Comic books have a magical ability to capture our imagination; use that same technique to capture the imagination of your learners.
And much more.... These tidbits of advice can be used by any person who has ever considered creating e-learning or has ever been involved in the e-learning process. Follow my advice and watch your e-learning flourish!

Great book for getting started with elearning

Keep in mind, that this is NOT a book about taking an elearning course - it is about creating one. That worked out well for me, but if you're thinking about researching books about how to approach an elearning class - this won't help you.

This is a really good, quick read for anyone who is thinking of creating an elearning program. As a beginning programmer, I was intrigued by the author's suggestions. The author presents 26 basic, but intelligent, ideas in a short book.
