“The course was very complete and I felt much more confident and knowledgeable in my work after attending it. Thanks to the Digital Learning Institute team I managed to create interactive and user-friendly eLearning content in my role. We used real case scenarios, role plays, brainstorming and many other interactive activities. I also had the opportunity to learn more about LMS, eLearning softwares, interactive platforms for games and quizzes, new technologies and best practices in digital learning.”

“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.”

Our students for each course come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Whilst some have experience in training & development, or even some eLearning design experience, for many people this may be their first time exploring the world of digital learning.
The main criteria for consideration is your commitment to putting in the study time and attention required to achieve this professional qualification. Our mentors will support and guide you, but you will need to be prepared to set aside several hours a week for both study and project work.
A working knowledge of the English language will also be required to benefit fully from this course. All course material, and live virtual classrooms, are delivered in English.
This course follows a four-month structure, consisting of live virtual classrooms and self-paced learning. The bi-weekly live virtual classrooms, hosted by one of our mentors, give you the opportunity to discuss, ask questions and take on challenges with other students. In between these virtual classrooms, you’ll be given online learning content to explore at your own pace, in addition to project work to complete.
