E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate

Develop meaningful, memorable, and motivational e-learning programs.

Based on examples from organizations that have implemented successful online learning, this program will provide you with the skills to develop asynchronous e-learning experiences that motivate learners to change their behavior. Learn to overcome instructional design challenges in any industry, and apply the principles of effective e-learning design to individualized courses, tutorials, games, simulations, and other e-learning modules. Explore the essential e-learning components of context, challenge, activity, and feedback to elevate your success. In this course, offered in partnership with Allen Interactions, you’ll discover the design elements of effective e-learning, investigate instructional interactivity that supports learning, practice applying these discoveries in designs, and learn to incorporate what works into your own projects.

Participants will receive a copy of Michael Allen’s Guide to E-Learning book. A laptop computer (or other device that is able to play and download Adobe Flash files), with Wi-Fi capability and the latest version of Adobe Flash® installed is required to review e-learning examples. Please do not bring iOS devices (iPhones, iPads, etc.), as the program materials will not function properly on these devices. There will be no computers available on-site for participants.

The E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate will take place on May 17-18, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
