This post contains links to a variety of pages that I either find inspirational, useful for instructional designers, informative, awesome, and/or all of the above!
I will add more links as I come across them, and if you know of any sites that should be in this list please send them forth and I will include them. Thanks!
These links open in a new window. If they don’t open change your browser setting to allow pop-ups, or in some systems you can either hold down one of the following keys: SHIFT, CONTROL, or COMMAND, at the same time that you click the link.
Here is the list of awesomeness:
Brain Pickings (Interesting curiosities and oddities for discovery-minded people)
