Program Overview

Program Overview

Explore the essential e-learning components of context, challenge, activity, and feedback to elevate your success. In this program, you’ll discover the design elements of effective e-learning, investigate instructional interactivity that supports learning, practice applying these discoveries in designs, and learn to incorporate what works into your own projects. Please note that this program does not address issues of designing and delivering live, virtual instructor-led webinars, nor does it focus on specific software or tools.

Experienced in e-learning?  Consider our Advanced E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate.
