Stumped on what to get the eLearning developer in your life? Holiday gift buying doesn’t need to be stressful! You could go the tried and true Starbucks gift card route, or you could really show your favorite eLearning pro how much you care with these great gift ideas.
STEAL (< $100)
- A good read—preferably in eBook form ($0)
Give the gift of knowledge. eBooks are a great way to catch up on the latest trends and learning methods. They also pair well with a fine wine or nice cup of joe. I recommend Performance Support: Insights From Jane Hart.
- Free Lectora Fundamentals On-demand Video Training ($0 w/purchase)
Free training?! That’s right. Every 2017 Lectora® User Conference registration purchase comes with free Lectora Fundamentals On-demand Video Training. You get a $400 value free—it’s our way of saying “thank you” for attending the LUC.
- Cord organizers ($3.82 and up)
eLearning developers love technology…unfortunately technology comes with a lot of cables and cords to keep track of. Cord organizers keep everything tangle-free! I’m partial to these little animal-shaped ones, but a quick Google search will reveal options suited for all tastes.
- Desktop microphone for voiceovers and more ($99)
Record crisp, clear audio! This microphone rings in under $100 and works with Macs or PCs. Learning expert and analyst Elliott Masie describes it as “cute looking and very effective,” so you know you can’t go wrong.
SPLURGE (> $100)
- eLearning Brothers Stock Asset Library subscription ($489)
The eLearning Brothers Stock Asset Library includes all of the stock images, audio, and video that you need to develop awesome courses. This is a growing library of assets that can be used in all of your learning content.
- Registration to the 2017 Lectora User Conference ($795)
We’re pretty sure the eLearning pros on your list want to join us at the Hyatt Regency in Cincinnati, Ohio, for two inspiring days of eLearning sessions, networking, and much more. The 2017 Lectora User Conference runs May 3 – 4, 2017. Optional pre-conference training on May 2, 2017 is also available. Register a team member—or yourself—now while it’s still the early bird rate!
And just in case you wanted to get a little something for Trivantis…on our list this year are tacos, LUC 2017 speaker proposals, and a puppy.
Happy holiday shopping!
