Tips and Tricks to Unlocking the Potential of eLearning in the Workplace with host Andrew Hughes and guest Alex Salas

When we talk eLearning, we are often considering moving beyond PDFs, MS Word, and Powerpoint. But implementing eLearning in your training program isn’t just about a shift in tools and platform, it’s also about the fundamental question of how you are answering business needs. And just as important, the context within which you are launching your eLearning is a critical component of its success.

So listen in on Andrew Hughes and Alex Salas as they discuss their own “Tips and Tricks to Unlocking the Potential of eLearning”. This is an excellent episode from two highly experienced instructional designers that have worked on eLearning projects big, small and everywhere in-between.
