Yes, it is true that when we think of E-Learning Heroes we immediately go to the mindset that it's an Articulate Help Line. There is much more to this site. Every new instructional designer needs to know and become close friends with the resources available at E-Learning Heroes.

Let's begin with the basics. This site is a vast community of industry specialist as well as novice or newbies providing resources on various aspects of course design. The Articulate team of expert do provide somewhat rapid help with Articulate design issues via discussion forums and chats. What I find most valuable is that any sort of topic on the instructional design field is also addressed with dynamic articles. I wanted to provide newbies in the field with some 101 basic articles that are helpful and will be useful to those entering the ID industry. I highly encourage designers to check these resources out from the E-Learning Heroes community site. If you haven't joined the site yet, don't waste time sigh up now!
