With the increased demand for online educational resources, many tertiary and training organisations have struggled to shift content that’s designed for in-person training to an accessible online format.

The way we engage with educational content is significantly different when we learn online.

This course unpacks the theory behind learning. It examines the role of instructional designers and explores the most prevalent design framework used today.

You’ll learn how to:
  • identify and understand the needs of your learners
  • design and develop an e-learning course
  • evaluate the effectiveness of the e-learning course
  • create a professional document that justifies your project, the decisions you made, and the value of your final product
