The Rapid E-Learning Blog (Practical & Fun!)


"The Rapid E-Learning Blog shares practical tips and tricks to help you become a rapid elearning pro. It is hosted by Tom Kuhlmann who has over 15 years of hands-on experience in the training industry and currently runs the community at Articulate."
  • Rapid E-Learning 101 - Rapid elearning is about getting the right information to people at the right time. It’s more than the tools. It’s about empowering people with the knowledge that they need to operate at the speed of business. This 7-part series brings you up-to-speed with some basic ideas about rapid elearning and how to get your project off the ground.
  • 5 Myths About Rapid E-Learning - This 5-part series explores common misconceptions about rapid e-learning development and discuss ways that rapid e-learning can help you do a great job and get the results you want.
Tom Kuhlmann's Rapid E-Learning Blog is a wonderful place to learn the art of developing rapid e-learning content (or at least the basics!), especially if you are using Microsoft Office and Articulate tools (What a surprise!). Even if you are not using these tools, it provides tremendous value from an instructional design point-of-view, too. Also, please do not forget to download the free 46-page e-book (need to subscribe) from the blog entitled The Insider's Guide To
Becoming a Rapid E-Learning Pro

Yeah, I had fun learning how to become more creative with Clipart using the "Grouping" features in PowerPoint (Check out below something I did within a few minutes of exploration!). For those of you not familiar or good with tools like Photoshop and Illustrator (I have to admit I am one of them!), PowerPoint is also a quite dynamic tool for graphic creation, meshing, mixing, etc (Coming to think of it, even the banner on my blog was developed using PowerPoint!).

In short, this Rapid E-Learning Blog is certainly a place for our 'Favorites', and I know I will be busy this weekend getting myself self-certified with Tom's Rapid E-Learning 101 course :)
