Having great software is the first step in learning to build good courses. But you also need to know what to do with that software. That’s why we’re bringing the best of the world’s #1 e-learning community to Sunnyvale for two days of practical tips, inspirational examples, free downloads, and expert advice.

This will be a fun, friendly extension of our E-Learning Heroes community. And we’re inviting you to bring your laptop to get some hands-on experience working along with Tom Kuhlmann, David Anderson, and Articulate Community Managers, as well as other great Articulate users.

The sessions are intended for Articulate users, but anyone is welcome to join, as many of the sessions have general application regardless of the software.

Here's who usually attends:

  • Subject matter experts who build rapid e-learning courses
  • Trainers transitioning to e-learning
  • Instructional designers
  • E-learning designers & developers 
Why You Should Attend:
  • Learn how to save time and money with more efficient development by working more efficiently with your tools
  • Take your courses past the standard click & read model
  • Make your courses look like e-learning courses & not bullet-point slides
  • Create interactive & engaging courses
  • Hundreds of post-conference resources including tutorials & templates

Participants will need to bring laptops with Articulate loaded.  If you don't have a copy, the free trial version will suffice for the presentation, and is available to download for free on the event registration page. Here’s the link:

Tom Kuhlmann s Chief Learning Architect for Articulate where he writes the Rapid E-Learning Blog which is published weekly to over 150,000 readers. He led the development of Articulate’s 500,000 member e-learning community and is known throughout the industry for his practical, no-nonsense approaches to e-learning. And his core focus is on helping people succeed and grow as they learn to build elearning courses.


We are working on a more detailed final agenda which will post soon. Here are some of the sessions (topics subject to change).
How to Create Videos in PowerPoint & Track Them in Your LMS
Break Out of the Big Course Mindset
Project Management Tips & Tricks
Help Your Subject Matter Expert Help You
How to Build Effective Animations & Transitions
Visual Design Tips & Tricks
Different Ways to Build Navigation in Your Courses
Apply These Gamification Elements to Your E-Learning
And more...

This part of the workshop is a series of hands-on activities where we build a number of decision-making interactions. We’ll present an idea, prototype the construction, and then build the interaction and save it as a template. We’ll also provide some free templates and interactions for you to take back to work. Here are the main areas of focus:
  • Create a series of interactions
  • Identify some production techniques
  • Create re-usable templates
  • Walk away with free interactive templates
There’s an on-site cafeteria with a full lunch menu including entrees, sides, and drinks.

Many thanks to Intuitive Surgical for providing the venue for this workshop.

REGISTRATION will be handled on an external site. Note the Early Bird discount for all who register by September 15th.  Golden Gate Chapter members will receive a discount code by separate mailing to use.  Please click here to go to the registration page now.
