Have you heard about the “Lizard Brain” yet? That’s what Mike Taylor and Briavel Shultz of Mindset Digital discussed at the 2017 Lectora® User Conference. Their LUC 2017 presentation was called “Things Learning Pros Should Steal From the Marketing Department.”But before we get to “Lizard Brain,” let’s start with the focus of this LUC 2017 presentation.

Mike and Briavel shared that over 95% of human behavior is subconscious. And by knowing that information, they shared tips for creating eLearning that get people’s attention and is successful.Here are just a few of these tips:
