How has your elearning changed the world?

Posted on Aug 14, 2015


This week we're encouraging instructional designers to shout a little louder about the things they've done that made an impact on the world.

aAron Pont started the week off with his own reflections on how being an instructional designer can really make a difference, and we've already had some great tweets and we'll be featuring them in a round up at the end of the week.

Now we're giving you some ideas that have come from our experience of instructional design to give you some inspiration.

Open source projects play a big part in elearning, especially enabling non-commercial projects to benefit as wide an audience as possible. If you're a contributor you have helped change the world.
