Why Build a Course
When a Job Aid Might Do? 

What do cave drawings, assembly instructions, and recipes have in common? They are all job aids. Good job aids help people to be more successful in their work. How? By reinforcing learning, providing just-in-time reference material, and other types of guidance.

Join Dawn Mahoney and Matt Pierce as they: 

  1. Discuss why job aids work.
  2. Provide a few tips for crafting better job aids. 
  3. Discuss the various types of performance support tools you might consider when planning your content development.
