“I’m overwhelmed, struggling with where to start, information dumps, lack of necessary skills, and being pulled from trend to trend. I’m most overwhelmed from not being able to engage learners online.”
You ever feel like that?
Someone made you responsible for completing a project, or they put you in a job where they think you’d do well, and said, “Hey, here you go. Have at it!”
Listen: I get emails nearly every day from people who need e-learning help. They’re not instructional designers and they have no e-learning experience.
All their knowledge is pretty much acquired through Google.
In fact, they have no desire to become e-learning experts. No. It’s just that they don’t have someone to talk to about e-learning. And Google is not who you talk to about it.
As you are aware, looking up information and researching can be very overwhelming — especially when trying to build capacity internally.
