To all the clients I've
Hello clients, it's me, your learning designer.
We don't talk nearly enough these days, so I
thought I'd do a list of things I've been
meaning to tell you. And I made it a top 10 list,
for clickbait reasons and to make you read to
So here it is, the top 10 list of things I want to
say to all the clients I've ever known...
10. Don't hear a buzzword and decide it's
the answer to all your problems
Just because something's the new 'thing' in elearning doesn't mean it's right for you. Why
not ask a learning designer? We're up to date
with all the latest developments in e-learning,
maybe we can suggest something that's both
novel and will achieve what you're trying to
9. Don't ask me to write information - I write
And yes, there's a difference. If you're looking
for someone to make a really nice-looking
website that's going to display all your content
and make it look as pretty as possible, you
may not have come to the right place.
8. Let's communicate
This isn't a restaurant and you're not ordering
off a menu. It's more like I'm your personal
chef and we're cooking a meal together for
your guests, all of whom have very specific
dietary requirements. We'll need to keep
communicating to make sure everyone gets
something to eat.
7. This is going to be a collaboration
Throughout the process I'll keep offering you
the spoon to get your opinion on how it
tastes. You need to set aside time and review
things I send you as carefully as possible.
This is going to be a time-consuming process
for all of us - but worth it in the end.
