Cathy Moore's Blog

Thursday, May 8, 2014

With a superhero's rallying cry, "Let's save the world from boring training!" e-learning expert Cathy Moore leads her more than 11,000 blog readers on a mission to design better e-learning. Moore, identified by as one of the 10 most influential e-learning practitioners this year, has gained a loyal following in her unique approach to e-learning, which she calls "action mapping." The approach is designed to change what learners do instead of what they know.

Moore explains (and links to) tools and processes she has used in her own work, frequently presenting images, diagrams, or videos instead of monotonous reams of text. For example, she distills action mapping into a simple, visual process that readers can follow each time they set out to design or improve e-learning.


True to her philosophy of e-learning, Moore's posts are succinct, providing only the information that readers can use. Looking for ways to assess your client's true training needs? How about steps to designing a branching scenario? Or maybe you just want to browse through e-learning samples handpicked by Moore. Learn on at
