Ellen Wagner: eLearning Roadtrip

Are you an instructional designer or interested in instructional design? Are you reading Ellen Wagner's blog eLearning Roadtrip yet? Well you should be!

The former Senior Director of Worldwide eLearning at Adobe (plus a whole bunch of other impressive sounding gigs), Ellen recently formed Sage Road Solutions.

If I were in charge (but sadly, I'm not), I'd put her in the Who's Who of eLearning.

Start with Ellen's latest post: Prerequisites for IDs in which she eloquently describes all of the OTHER skills one first needs (like writing, presentation skills) before one can even get to the ID work.

Go ahead. Join Ellen on her roadtrip.

Hello Cammy, and thank you for saying such nice things about me and the eLearning Roadtrip.

It's been nice to get my ID "voice" back. Not that I wasn't thinking like an ID in my last corporate jobs, because that was precisely what I was supposed to be doing. But the goal was about selling software for elearning and education, not necessarily focusing on the needs of IDs. Luckily, there is a lot of overlap.

I learned a lot about how people outside our practice think about who we are, what we do, how we work. Now that so many of us in the industry are doing so much self-reflecting, it's been nice to be able to share some of these insights.

Thanks for all YOU do to help IDs raise the bar!!

This is the part when we stand around and virtually pat each other on the back, right?

Very glad you've got your ID voice back and that you're projecting it so very well!
