“The Professional Cert offers a perfect blend of theory and application of best practices. In the space of a few days attending the sessions, I was able to have a clear methodology and significantly upskilled in knowing how to design eLearning and develop contents using Articulate 360.”
“I learnt about the different learner types, the three main learning theories, the blooms taxonomy and much more theoretical ground knowledge that are needed to start in this field. We actually went through the whole process from instructional design, development, assessment and evaluation.”
“This course gave me a great starting point to develop eLearning design and development skills and processes. It was a very hands-on course where I worked in a group to develop a storyboard and screen plans for an online course using Articulate Storyline.”

This course is completely online and experienced through a mix of live Virtual Classrooms and self-paced online learning resources. The core learning content is delivered through the self-paced learning resources, such as interactive videos and microlearning assets.

You have limited experience, either in instructional design or development, but no formal training or accreditation. You currently do a lot of eLearning development but feel you currently lack instructional design expertise. You will need to manage an eLearning project and want to know the key project steps and ‘speak the eLearning language’.
6 weeks. There are 3 Virtual Classroom sessions spread over 6 weeks – so you have one Virtual Classroom every 2 weeks. Each Virtual Classroom is around 2 hours long. There is around 3 – 4 hours a week of self-paced learning to do in your own time between the Virtual Classrooms.
