Why this course?

  • "I am new to instructional design, and our instructor provided us with a framework for each major design methodology. I learned that many times the best approach to developing a learning project is a blended approach. I found this course helpful in explaining the basic information I need to be a high performer in my new role." —Sarah Callahan

  • "The course materials are well-designed and very practical. The checklists and job aids will be very useful in designing instructional design programs. The program followed best practices in adult learning and focused on practical application. The activities were … respectful of my professional experience and my time." —Edwin Perez

What were the most relevant topics covered in this course?

  • "The course challenged my past knowledge and made me realize how much more room I had to improve. There were so many takeaways, from how to start the design process to reminders of training methods like ADDIE and others, and almost three months later I still find myself reviewing my notes and materials. It provided the tools I needed to continue to affect change within my company in the area of training design." —Foluke Jeboda

  • "This program gives so many great tips on how to tweak designs that are fast and simple. For example, I was able to use Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning as a more powerful tool during course design. I also was given the tools to help my design documents be more useful." —Ryan WIlliams

Invest in yourself. You are worth it!
