How to make data informed decisions to improve existing learning programs
Solve real-world educational challenges and integrate technology with today’s learning environments.
Gain in-demand skills and launch your instructional design career with an in-depth training program. Learners that devote four hours per week to this certificate program can expect to finish in approximately 4-5 months.
How will you know how to design e-learning systems and evaluate their effectiveness accordingly? In this course you will develop competency-based skills to incorporate and work synergistically to apply appropriate models and theories of designing e-learning systems in instructional design.
Instructional and Training System Design
In this dynamic course you will learn key components of training system design rooted in content development and variants of learning theories behind instructional design. This course will prepare you to work with subject matter experts (SMEs) in selecting, organizing and developing effective training content. You will gain deep understanding of how people learn cognitively and emotionally so that the development of training content and design will be more tailored, meaningful and engaging.
Instructional and Learning System Design e-Portfolio
As a senior instructional designer in your organization, you are asked to design, develop and implement an education program to fulfill the learning needs of your target audience. In this project, you will play a key role in defining the program objectives, choosing the right technologies, partnering with critical stakeholders and evaluating the outcomes. All the artifacts that you produced in this project (learner analysis report, curriculum outline, program implementation plan, etc.) will be saved to your e-portfolio and contribute to your career advancement.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
How to implement instructional design projects from ideation to completion
Ways to define learning needs through data analysis and interviews
Methods for selecting an appropriate instructional design model and technologies based on organizational objectives and resources
How to collaborate with subject matter experts (SMEs) to develop learning content
Case Study Discussion and Solution Development for Instructional Design
In this project, you will be presented a complex learning system design case and asked to work on an innovative solution. You’re challenged to synthesize all the instructional design models and come up with a customized plan to address the unique organization needs. You need to optimize the learning outcomes by choosing the appropriate learning theories and technologies. This case study will bring you to the next-level of instructional design expertise and prepare you to handle large-scale projects in the future.
