A challenge is to work fast yet when potential do create click-next displays of text or provide hours of lecture, with little else, in a assembly format that is digital. In some cases you will find , possibly better, alternatives that are less-traditional that could be made and deployed.
Text-based messaging can work in lieu of a much more usual approach. We often see examples of the with organizations that provide content in snacks of up to about five minutes per message, with messages delivered across the span of months or a few days.
