I have searched the internet tubes for resources that may help me in my quest to be an elearning professional. What I have here are just a few of the sites that I consider useful.
In my position, we use Adobe products quite a bit including Captivate and Acrobat. Sometimes, those programs can be a bit finicky to use so finding a community that can provide technical assistance and guidance is very helpful. The Rapid eLearning blog at Adobe has some great resources and a large international community of educators with many years of experience in developing content. The information can be slanted toward marketing the latest and greatest versions (they are really pushing Captivate 6 right now!), but with a little bit of digging you can find additional resources and ideas.
Hosted by Tom Kuhlman, the Rapid E-Learning Blog is a popular site for users of Articulate and their new Storyline program. Tom has a way of presenting complex topics and ideas clearly and concisely. Subscribing to his RSS feed and newsletter seems to constantly provide me with new resources and ideas. He is also responsive to reader inputs and has created specific lessons to address posters questions. My office has recently purchased both programs and I have had some time to explore the capabilities of each. They are very impressive and make creating content from power point presentations extremely easy. The programs are not perfect and require a computer with some muscle to run them, but overall they have proven to be a benefit in content creation.
The third blog I follow is Mind / Shift. This blog curates a variety of educational websites, blogs, and technical news into an easy to read format. The writing tends to focus on technology in the classroom and policies aimed at changing the way education is brought to students. Not being a K-12 teacher myself, I read this blog in order to learn what the industry is struggling with and what issues are shared with my field.
One honorable mention I would like to make is the Learning Theories blog. I stumbled upon this while researching answers to a discussion question. I have not delved too deep into the site, but like what I see and the explanations of theories make more sense to me.
Some of these sites have a corporate feel, I know, but they still have good information that has forced me to explore issues further. I recommend using these as starting points in your exploration of content creation.
