Quick Reflection: 30 Top Online Resources for IDs to Keep Up With

Take a look at Upside Learning Blog’s post here: https://www.upsidelearning.com/blog/2010/05/20/30-top-online-resources-for-instructional-designers-to-keep-up/

As I prepare for a possible new career in Instructional Designer (ID), I have been looking for resources to help. Due to assignments from my professors, I was able to look at tons of educational tech blogs this week. This one appears to be only a list of useful resources so I did not use it for my blog review assignment. However, I did want to keep track of it to consider these online resources. Admittedly, it was posted in 2010, so some of the links are dead. I’m forgiving.

I am a scanner, someone taught me to speed read, and I cannot apologize for my desire for captivating visuals and posts from writers who understand the need to be succinct. Here’s what I didn’t close within two seconds:

https://informationisbeautiful.net/ Information is Beautiful: This site is aesthetically pleasing with interesting content. I’ll come back to it later.

http://blog.integratedlearningservices.com/ Integrated Learning Services: This blog caught my eye with their neatly organized list. It could be something.

http://jonathansid.blogspot.com/ Jonathan has a post about the varying roles one might encounter as an ID. Decide for yourself if it’s a blog worth reading further.

http://theelearningcoach.com/ Similarly, the eLearning Coach has content to feed my hunger to understand more about the ID field.

https://blogs.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/ This week I have come across the term ‘rapid eLearning’ which sounds like my kind of thing. I recently have gotten into speed learning/listening, and I have myself up to double speed on familiar content. I am not an auditory learner, so speed listening actually keeps my attention long enough to make me listen. My eyes are always hungry though. Rapid eLearning could be very interesting indeed. Do you know anything of it? Have you tried it? I’d love to hear about your experience. Let me know what you think about these online resources as well. Comments welcome!

Kindly, Kelly
