If there’s one thing all trainers and instructional designers have in common, it’s that there’s not enough time in the day to get everything done. Whether you’re on an under-resourced and under-staffed team placating the many demands of business units or running your own training business with multiple clients to satisfy, you need to find extra minutes where they don’t exist. That’s why we put together this (short) list of time-saving hacks so that you can do your job more efficiently: 1. Google Smarter It turns out that there is such a thing as a stupid question.

That way, every time you open up a new document, you can use the same formatting as before. Here is a quick tutorial. 4.
