We-Learn Weekly: October 6, 2021

Oct 06, 2021

This week’s sweets: Latino small business support, accessible visual content, free ID tools, LGBTQ+ & ally tech leadership training, 12 UX design competencies, learner variability tool, and launching an eLearning startup!

Happy Wednesday, happy We-Learn treats day!  Enjoy these super sweet, freaking awesome resources that are sure to hit everyone’s ID, LXD, and L&D sweet spots!  🍭🍬🍫

Thankfully I had these prepared beforehand, as I am feeling absolutely horrible today, after getting my 3rd COVID vaccine dose on Monday.  I have a fever, feel like I’ve been run over by a truck, headache, and dizziness… but it’s worth it!  Being disabled and considered immunocompromised, I’m thankful that the 3rd dose was made available to me. 🙏🏽

If you have any resources or events you feel would be helpful to the community, be sure to contact me with the details so I can share the goodies with everyone!

Note:  Clicking on the titles below will take you directly to the resources being offered.  I’ve also included the links in the description, as well as other helpful links.
