Spring into Instructional Design Challenge (4)

Step One: Join the Hangout and RSVP to the daily live streams

We’ve got a full week of free trainings from instructional design experts. Plus, bonus cameos from instructional design mentors.

It all goes down in The Hangout, a Facebook community for aspiring instructional designers. Make sure you’re a Hangout member so you don’t miss a moment of this learning-filled week.

We also recommend RSVPing to the daily events so you’ll get a reminder to join. If you do have to miss a session, don’t worry, we’ll send you the replay!

Step Four: Submit Your Work & Celebrate!

Once you have your shared folder set up, you’re ready to submit your daily Challenge work. Use the submission form linked below to submit your work using a link that has the permission settings set to editor so that we can provide feedback. If you do not have the submissions set correctly, we will not be able to comment on your work. Both Dropbox and Google Drive allow you to change the permission settings via the SHARE button.

Also, do your best to submit your activities before 11:00 PM EST each day of the Challenge to be eligible for feedback from our team of instructional designers.

After submitting your work via the submission form, return to the Hangout Community and post your accomplishment badge! You will find accomplishment badges here or you can make your own. 🙂
