#GuildChat for 03/10/17: Digital Learning Assets

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, March 10th at 11AM PT/2PM ET. This week’s topic is on Digital Learning Assets.


After the objective is set and the design is in motion a learning professional most often turns their attention to digital assets.

Knowing where to find, how to select, how to create and then how to best manage these assets is a critical skill in itself, one that goes beyond the definition of learning designer held by most outside the field.
