Writing Effective eLearning Narration: Making It Easy to Read, Say, and Comprehend

Many courses rely upon voiceover to help connect with their learners. This is a solid approach and, when used well, can make for great learning experiences.

Instructional designers and subject matter experts (SMEs) mean well; they want to share and teach all the content needed to understand and master a topic.
