Instructional Design Certificate Program
Introduction to Instructional Design - This class covers the essence of what it means to be an instructional designer. It describes the nature of the work, the core learning theories behind the work, and industry best practices for doing the work, and begins to teach participants how they can become employed as instructional designers.
Instructional Design in Corporate Environments - While there are many venues in which instructional design can be practiced, the vast majority of jobs in this field involve working with or for corporate employers. To be successful, it is necessary to understand the culture of the company, identify key project members (e.g. stakeholders and subject matter experts),

Instructional Design Technologies - In this class, participants will be introduced to a wide range of applications they will likely
need to work in this field. Included are sections on programs for storyboarding the learning, creating interactive content, and working with common learning management systems that typically serve as the online interface between participants and the instruction being delivered.
