550 elearning character images released
For the 101st week in a row, we have released at least 1 new character per week for our members. This month saw the addition of 7 character packs and 550 new character images.
That brings the total character image count to 36,457. It’s come a long way since I launched the site with just 3 characters. 🙂

Free eLearning tool of the month: Aspect ratio calculator
I’ve continued my project of creating free tools that help me solve specific problems. This week, I’d like to highlight the:
- Aspect Ratio Calculator: A lot of times, you know the size of your original image. And you have a requirement to resize it to a certain height OR a certain width. This calculator does the math for you and automatically spits out the missing dimension.
Example: Let’s say I have an image that’s 1024 x 768. I’m trying to fit the image into a width of 800 pixels to fit in my eLearning authoring tool. I can just type “800” in the width field and the calculator will kick out “600”. Give it a try…

Here are two general quotes I like that are relevant to eLearning:
And here are my 2 favorite quotes from my interview with the eLearning Coach
