The Evolution of the e-Learning Development Guide: What Is It and Do You Need One?

When you embark on a journey, it’s helpful to know not only where you’re going, but how you’re going to get there. In 1804, Lewis and Clark relied on Sacagawea to guide them through the Midwest. Sir Edmund Hillary may have scaled Mt. Everest in 1953, but only thanks to his Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay.

Trying to find your way without some sort of guide doesn’t necessarily guarantee failure, but it certainly raises the likelihood of troubles along the way.
