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.
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.

Students are admitted on a case-by-case basis after a consultation with one of our Educational Advisors.
Our students for each course come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Whilst some have experience in training & development, or even digital learning design, 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 asidetime each 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 content, and live virtual classrooms, are delivered in English.
There is two approaches to taking the Diploma.
• Cohort Based Learning
• Self-Paced Learning
Cohort Based Learning
Cohort Based Learning is a scheduled and structured digital learning experience over a 22-week period. You will start the course at a scheduled time with other students from your cohort. There will be scheduled learning activities, interventions and assessment milestones over the 22 weeks. The content is all available self-paced but is accessed in a timetabled manner. You will have an opportunity to network with your peers and attend live virtual classroom sessions. The option is ideal for people who want to get certified quickly and experience a course with other students.
The self paced options allow you to start the Diploma at any time and complete the course in your own time. There are no scheduled learning activities and interventions. You can set your own timetable for the assessment. You will receive support from a learning mentor to guide you through the process. This option is ideal for people who cannot dedicate 4 hours per week to study and need flexibility to manage their own time.
Yes. Throughout the course, you will be supported by one of our mentors –all of whom are experienced digital learning professionals and facilitators. In addition to hosting your virtual classrooms, your mentor will support you through one-to-one sessions, guidance and feedback on your projects.
Yes. The work-based project on the course will give you the chance to design & build end-to-end digital learning experiences in multiple formats, which will have the added benefit of building your portfolio that showcases your digital learning design skills and experience.
