E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate

Elevate your training to a virtual level with asynchronous e-learning programs.

Invigorate your traditional instructional design with fresh e-learning techniques. Based on examples from organizations that have implemented successful virtual training programs, this program will provide you with the skills to develop individualized, asynchronous e-learning experiences that motivate learners to change their behavior. Learn to skillfully meet instructional design challenges in any industry and apply the principles of effective e-learning to individualized courses, tutorials, games, simulations, and other e-learning modules.

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.
