Posted by Jean Marrapodi on Thu, 10/06/2016 – 16:26

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Illumina Interactive’s blog: Illuminating Ideas. Twice a month, we’ll be writing about learning: sharing our stories, exploring best practices, and wrestling with new ideas and trends in the marketplace.

The Illumina Creatives: Hal, Michael, John, Ashley, Keith, Karen, Jim, Maggie and Carrie

What Will We Be Sharing?

Great question! As a learning provider partnering with companies to develop their learning, we bring a unique perspective to the marketplace. We see trends as we attend conferences and association meetings, speak with customers and colleagues, watch webinars and keep up with industry reading.


We’re ever sharpening our swords to stay on the cutting edge of best practices. We hear the unique needs in different industries as we provide solutions for our ever growing client base. We’ll share what we’re seeing, but we’ll also deliver specific ideas for learning management and learning practitioners. For management, we’ll explore the best ways to leverage outside developers like us, ways to streamline your processes and make production more efficient for all of your stakeholders. For practitioners, we’ll be covering some nuts and bolts topics like building scenarios, attention-grabbing introductions (hint: it’s NOT a list of objectives!), graphics selections, as well as generalized topics like Universal Design, leveraging social media, user experience design, creating learning communities and ways to extend your learning arm into the workforce to help them get better at the things they need to do.  We’re all about meeting needs. Let us know if you have something specific you’d like to know about.
