The Accidental Instructional Designer: More positive reviews!

I continue to be blown away by the great reviews of my book, The Accidental Instructional Designer: Learning Design for the Digital Age. Five stars for five Amazon reviews!

Thanks to everyone who have bought a copy and who continue to spread the word. The book has definitely struck a chord in the e-Learning ID community.

Today, Jon Aleckson of WebCourseworks described me as a "frenemy" but then went on to share that he bought five copies of the book for his ID team! Read Jon's full review of the book on his blog.

Have you read the book yet? Why not?! :)

Designing for Multi-Devices -- Poll Results

Check out the results of this poll on I ran on my blog a few months ago, asking people for what devices they're currently creating content.
What do you think? Does this reflect your organization's reality? How do you think this will change -- if at all -- in the next six months, one year, five years?

If you haven't already, take the poll!

Careers in eLearning: Moving from Accident to Intention #CETS14

I had the honor today to keynote the Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase here in Naperville, IL.

Of course, these slides don't capture all of the great questions and interaction with the crowd. Sometimes you really do just have to be there...

It's the summer of special events!

Join me and the eLearning Guild for an encore performance of Design Models and Patterns for Creating Better eLearning on August 20th as part of the their "Best of DevLearn" series. 

Apparently, my session at DevLearn 2013 was one of the best-rated, most popular sessions! How cool is that?
