Traditional instructional design places undue emphasis on dumping training content on learners through a combination of information, media, and technology. What’s missing is the context of how learning happens and the understanding that learning is a process, not a one-time event. Learning Experience Design Essentials explores how you can blend content and context to elevate your learning experiences through adopting user experience, user interface, and accessibility principles.

L&D expert Cara North maps out the skills and capabilities that shape and define the work learning experience design (LXD) professionals do. She also lays out an LXD process to guide readers in creating effective experiences. It includes the all-important task analysis to understand the shoes your learners walk in while performing at work. Other steps include creating assessments, conducting usability testing, and messaging the why behind the learning experience.

This book will help you craft a 30/60/90 day plan to apply the concepts throughout. And by the end, you’ll feel confident saying “yes” to the simple question, “Would you want to take your own learning experiences?”
