Instructional Design Basics

Design interactive elearning courses that are engaging and effective.

About this course

This course gets you up to speed in designing interactive elearning courses. It focuses on the conversion of existing scripts or other training content into engaging self-paced interactive learning using a storyboard. It’s the storyboard that provides the magic which brings an interactive course to life and contributes to the overall effectiveness of the learning experience. Once the storyboard is completed the course can be built in a range of  common authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline, Articulate Rise or Adobe Captivate. Alternatively, you can use the storyboard to brief an external developer.
