When I started my role with Learnkit, I was eager to share the good news of my new job with my parents. They’ve always been supportive of my career path and understand the importance of training and development for every type of organization. However, there was a bit of a struggle when I told them I was now an Elearning Instructional Designer.
The conversation I had with my father went something like this:
Me: Dad I got that job I was telling you about!
Dad: Great work son, what will you’ll be doing again?
Me: I’ll be developing elearning solutions.
Dad: What do you mean by elearning? Like, online videos that people would watch? Or putting books online so that we can download them?
Me: Not really – it’s more creating interactive digital material, that gives you the hands-on experience that you need to gain new skills, and in a lot of cases can replace in-class instruction.
