If you’re a teacher and dread teaching in the classroom, there is a career that utilizes many of your skillsets and experience.  Being a classroom teacher is not for everyone.  Many of you got into teaching only to quickly realize it was not meant for you. Vast amount of Instructional Designers come from education backgrounds.  This is because many of the educational requirements of an ID are the same as those of teachers.  In this course, we will cover all of the aspects involved in creating an eLearning module.  We will be:

  • Scripting content

  • Creating a Storyboard

  • Recording Voiceover

  • Working in an authoring tool (we will be using Articulate Storyline 60-day trial)

  • Designing the slides

  • Publishing the course

  • Uploading to a test LMS

At the end of this course, you will have an actual work sample that you can showcase to future employers/stakeholders.  Almost every company who is looking for Instructional Designers want to see what you have created in the past.  They want to be able to see what you are capable of creating. 

This course is NOT an advance course in Instructional Design.  The main purpose of this course is to be able to understand the full duties of an Instructional designer as well as be able to create an entire eLearning module. 

Who this course is for:

  • If you are a teacher wanting a new carreer related to education
  • Teachers who want to know what instructional designers do
  • This is not for those who are already instructional designers. This is an intro to instructional design and also to have an understanding of the entire eLearning development process
  • Just watching the videos will not help, the learner must complete the tasks to gain experience
