Step away from your computer and put down the mouse!
Sorry if I’m being bossy but I’m just trying to save you some time and help you avoid some SERIOUS frustration!
Building elearning is an awesome gig if you can get it but, like with any other job, there are some things about it that can drive you FREAKING CRAZY!!!
And I’m not talking about little things like a misspelled word or a picture out of place…I’m talking about “Oh crap! I just wasted 40 hours and just lost thousands of dollars” types of things.
The type of things that will make you take your phone off the hook (can you still do that with a home phone?) and change your email address to avoid your extremely angry client!
So at this point you’re probably asking yourself: why should I listen to you John. Sure you’re intelligent and handsome but other than that, what do you have to offer?
Let me drop some knowledge on you my dear, confused friend…
Because I have probably dealt with every problem/bad situation associated with elearning. And somehow I’ve managed to survive, however not without a few scars (and scars are NOT sexy, according to my wife)
I don’t want you to ruin your pretty face with ugly scars so I want to HELP YOU!
I am about to let you in on the successes and failures (oh, there have been alot) I’ve experienced creating elearning.
I want to turn your frown upside down and help you avoid the stupid things I’ve done in the past!
I want to help you become the elearning developer that you daydream about when you’re driving home from work, listening to your Tony Robbins CDs.
And why do I want to do this? Because you’re worth it! (cue cheesy motivational music)!
Plus I just like helping people. It’s my biggest asset/fault
So let me stop rambling for a while and let you know a few of the things you’ll learn when you buy this book:
The secret to purchasing stock photos. You could waste hundreds of dollars by not learning this secret.
The 30-30 tip. Why this can save you hours of expensive production time.
How to stress out your learners by not “stressing out” your learners. There needs to be some sense of tension in your courses and I’ll tell you why.
The completely FREE audio editing program that works just like those that cost hundreds. It’s easy to use and produces high quality voiceovers.
How text-to-speech software could hurt your course. It’s tempting to use but could can actually distract learners!
Why it’s important to capture learners attention IMMEDIATELY. If you don’t you could lose them before they even get through the first few screens.
The Redundancy Principle and how it applies to elearning. This important principle can make or break your course.
How you can use sites like Monster and Careerbuilder to stay on top of the latest elearning technology. These sites are free tools that are updated daily with the most current technology job descriptions.
and much more…
So what should you do now?
Let me tell you my newly enlightened friend…
You should buy 45 Elearning Tips and Tricks from the Kindle bookstore, that’s what you should do!
Click the link below to be whisked there magically by this thing we call the internet!
Click me! Click me!
Before you heap praise and affection on me, finish the book and let me know what you think.
And if this book happens to save you a thousand dollars some day, you can just buy me a lottery scratch off or something. I’m bound to hit the big bucks eventually, right?
P.S. Check out my other books while you’re at it: How to Create an E-learning Course and 26 Things I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me About Elearning. They are chocked full of great advice and healthy nutrients!
