Seven Halloween Costume IDeas for e-Learning Instructional Designers

Halloween is just a few days away and finding a costume for work can be a challenge! Here are seven creative costume ideas to channel your inner instructional design geek! 

1. Prototype

This is an easy DIY costume using a white outfit and some electrical tape. Or, you can purchase a stick figure costume and add your own accessories. A "Currently Under Construction" sign or a speech bubble sign with 'Lorem Ipsum' text would be perfect accessories for this prototype.

4. Avatar

Customize this costume based on your favorite (or least favorite) e-learning course! Pick an avatar from that course and create an outfit to match. Add a speech bubble on a stick and tell your audience about what you will be helping them learn today.

BONUS Costume - The 3Ms!

We live and breath the 3Ms of Meaningful, Motivational & Memorable learning experiences. Halloween has always been a big celebration here at Allen Interactions and this is a throwback to one decade ago when Lisa Stortz, Solutions Architect, the green M&M, Scott Colehour, Allen Interactions Co-Founder, the orange M&M, and Paul Howe, the red M&M, dressed up as the 3Ms of learning which is the heart of what we believe at Allen for needing to build truly Meaningful, Memorable, and Motivational learning experiences and we've always illustrated this message with the iconic and delicious M&Ms.
