Are you inspired? Does your work reflect the level of creativity that you are capable of? Are you limited by factors out of your control? The struggle is real for Instructional Designers, as they must balance their creative desires and well-defined guidelines. These guidelines are well in effect for both academic and corporate organizations. These guidelines oftentimes tend to stifle creativity. The risk is that the learner will not be engaged, and the messaging is not as impactful as intended. Ultimately, the desire should be to create inspired eLearning, push the limits of the Instructional Designer, and still satisfy the organization's guidelines.
