Introducing Trivantis Community Contests, a semi-monthly challenge where you can create inspiring and helpful content, and then share it with the Trivantis Community and it’s members.
The first theme is Show your best work! We want you to share a course (either the whole thing or just a couple pages) that show off your skills. To participate upload your content on the Share New Contest page. Get the most downloads and you’ll be the winner! Each winner will be announced once the two week entry period has closed. Then share your awesomeness on social media,
Don’t forget to check out other people’s submissions on the Contest page.
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering… why should I take the extra time to create something? In most cases the company you’re working for probably made you sign a nondisclosure agreement, or you’re bound by copyright which means that sharing anything or everything you create on a daily basis is out of the question. That’s not fair. You’ve put time and effort into each one. It’s time for the world to see what you offer.
The simple solution is to create a portfolio. A portfolio provides a real-life example of what you can do and who you are. It gives you the perfect chance to show off your Instructional Design, Graphic Design, Writing, and Technology skills. But the one thing that keeps most people from creating a dedicated space, like a blog or domain, is finding the time to start crafting something and maintaining it once complete. Shortly following that issue is another pretty big one. What in the world do I share? Inspiration doesn’t always hit us at the right moment. But what you if had a series that you could use as inspiration to create something unique (hint: re-read the first paragraph). You can also try out that feature your company won’t use or design in a style that is unapologetically you.
