I don’t know about you, but my inbox is a pretty personal space. I don’t let just any company drop me a love note any time they have a conversational heart. And, unlike middle school, I especially don’t appreciate secret admirers showing up uninvited. My first thought when I receive an unexpected Valentine — who are these people and how did they get my email address?! On the rare occasion that I do share my email in exchange for discounts, freebies, or some other valuable and exclusive content that’s sure to leave me feeling like their one and only — I expect to be courted, like a proper sweetheart would.
If you’re like me and prefer to hold your heart inbox close, here’s a roundup of my top 6 learning-focused newsletters you’re sure to fall in love with!
Training Weekly by Training Magazine offers a weekly love note for training professionals who are seeking:
- Training best practices
- Learning and development trends and topics
- Blog posts from the Training Day blog
- Webinar recordings and upcoming events
- Industry expert white papers
The eLearning Guild concocts a weekly love potion delivered in their eLearning Insider newsletter. This newsletter is a quick read that rounds up the latest news and insights the Guild has to offer. Good news — if you’re already an eLearning Guild member (free or paid), you’ll automatically receive this Valentine. If not, you can get a sneak peek of their most recent issue here.
ATD offers a variety of Valentines (er, newsletters) to choose from. Topics range from industry-related news to trends, design tips, events & just about anything training-related. One of the perks we love the most is that ATD is continuously conducting self-funded research. With loads of helpful information backed by statistics, what’s not to love? You can even view past newsletter archives and editions here (in case you’re the type of Cupid who likes to walk down memory lane).
I may be biased, but we’re pretty proud of our occasional love notes that we send straight from our hearts to your inbox — you Innovative Insider you! We like to share a variety of tips and tricks to help you #UnlockInnovation, including:
- Access to The Blog Buzz (a bi-monthly recap of our latest blog posts), free resources & more!
- Exclusive discounts & offers just for being an innovative insider!
- VIP invites to upcoming webinars, events & live training!
On sign up, you can even share your preferred love language with us, which tells us more about you, how often you want to hear from us, and details that help us craft the perfect love letter just for you and your needs!
Similar to The Blog Buzz that we send every other week, Articulate does a great weekly recap of their latest blog posts in The Rapid E-Learning Blog newsletter. These love notes, written by our friend and industry expert Tom Kuhlmann, offer instructional designers and developers practical tips, tricks, and ideas, in his words, “to become a rapid eLearning pro”! Like us, you’ll fall head over heels for his real-life examples and helpful how-tos.
Each Tuesday, my inbox is served up with a lovely roundup of the top 10 eLearning news and articles from our friends at eLearning Industry! What my little social heart loves most about this weekly note is that the articles are voted on by the readers and ranked based on “social signs” and the quality of the content, meaning the more shares these articles have had via eLearning Industry that week, the more popular they rank — ultimately landing (like Cupid’s arrow) the most-loved articles into a weekly roundup. Swoon! And occasionally, we see the sweetest shout-out to our own blog posts and events. What’s not to love?
And there you have it, my recommendations for the 6 learning-focused newsletters you’ll love to subscribe to! We would be absolutely smitten if you’d be ours by signing up to #UnlockInnovation with us a few times per month. Think of our newsletter like your personalized Valentine — timely, sweet, and hard to break up with (and by that, we mean too good to let go)!
