Integrating the Serious eLearning Manifesto Into Our Work

People have been cheering on the Serious eLearning Manifesto for over a year now…

Those of us who instigated the effort have been delighted with stories about how people are integrating the Manifesto and its 22 principles into their work.

Here's an example from Mark T. Burke, Founder and Lead Innovative Educational Program Designer for ThinkID8 and elearning consultancy. Mark believes so strongly in the eLearning Manifesto that he's created a series of posters in his office.

Asked why he did such a thing, he said, "I was looking for something I could use as a personal framework.  So, as you can see, I adapted the opening statements to 'I….' statements.  Of course, I did this to demonstrate to others MY commitment to the collective vision of the Manifesto."

Kudos to Mark!


I met Mark as he led a workshop with Dr. Karl Kapp at Bloomsburg University for instructional designers. The workshop is fascinating in that it's designed to help instructional designers learn how to take more entrepreneurial approaches to their work and careers.
