Recently I was asked to search the Internet for other blogs and websites regarding learning and instructional design. Here is a brief discussion of what I stumbled upon…
1. Inspire 2 Learn: ( http://richardwatson64.wordpress.com/ ) In this blog Richard Watson uses his space for updates and information on training, instructional design, E-Learning, and social media topics. I personally found his blog very helpful for my job. He has compiled a list of Top 10 lists that I think every instructional designer should read. These were very useful for me and I plan to share some of them with the learning community at my job. Check them out! http://richardwatson64.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/the-top-10-top-10-lists/
2. Teaching With Technology @ Tufts: (http://blogs.uit.tufts.edu/id/ ) At this site you can find several useful posts about using technology in the current classroom. This site is a great resource for the university and other educators looking to find information on instructional design methods. They do a “Friday’s Pick” section that highlights key topics in various arenas. I think this site will prove to be a useful resource for me and my journey.
3. Making Change: (http://blog.cathy-moore.com/ ) Cathy Moore has created this blog in order to help its’ readers create impressive eLearning for the business world. Here she goes through helpful pointers on creating eLearning that will prove to be useful for me personally. In my current position we are trying to transition out of classroom learning and focus more on online modules to better reach our employees. We have experienced some resistance, and are working to make it more meaningful for our learners.
All of these blogs have exciting information that any instructional designer would deem useful. I hope you enjoy checking them out!
