What our students have to say

Even though you may have that knowledge, you might not have the qualification behind you, so I was feeling imposter syndrome. DLI definitely helped me progress in my journey within digital learning.

Support and Content Manager at EazySAFE Read Alan O’Flaherty’s story

I started off not knowing what digital learning was, so if I didn’t do this course, it wouldn’t have opened up this whole new world for me. I wasn’t a very confident person and always kept my ideas to myself, but once I got into this area, I was able to develop in a different place more in line with my interests.

I got a promotion just around Christmas time. And yes, I have my experience, but I’m certain it was also because I had the Certificate to back me up.

I’ve gone from being a novice in the L&D field, to now where I am able to have conversations with the more experienced team members, challenge ideas, and bring new ideas to the table and how do we move from standard eLearning to microlearning, video content. That future thinking has all come from me joining the diploma programme.

I completed the Professional Diploma in Digital Learning Design and can’t speak highly enough about the team at DLI. The amount of detail in the course along with the personal support offered throughout the programme could not be faulted. It truly is a masterclass in how to run an engaging online experience. The toolkit and personal mentoring alone are worth the fee.

A positive experience from start to finish. The team are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and above all supportive. The course I completed was perfect for my needs. I have experience of digital learning but no formal qualification, which I now have thanks to DLI. The certificate course was pretty comprehensive, although I’m experienced, it helped fill in many gaps in my knowledge and consolidated what I already know. My confidence has developed greatly in the DL field since taking part in the course. Progression is available with the diploma too, which I plan to take part in later in the year.

Just completed the Origins-getting started with digita learning design course. Very professional and quite laid back, I was able to watch the videos and complete the assessment/exercises at my own pace. I’m only really getting started with online courses and it was really interesting seeing the things that I’ve been doing right and also where I can improve. I feel much more confident in advising my colleagues and my tutors. Not only that there was also a lot of resources made available which I will absolutely be using

Great organisation with an innovative approach to digital learning. I completed the Advanced Digital Learning Certificate with John and his team so I would be happy to recommend them to anyone interested in developing their skills in this area.
