Participants receive access to a comprehensive toolkit of materials, templates and guides required to be an exceptional instructional designer. Participants use the toolkit as a self-paced resource to design and develop their own learning program. For completion, an instructional design and technology certificate course edx is awarded.
The toolkit contains detailed ‘How-to’ Guides, worked examples and templates, based on Instructional Design Australia (IDA) and Discover Learning Designs (DLD) commercial practice that draws on the five phases of the ADDIE model Instructional Design process:

Unlike some industries you don’t necessarily need a qualification or licence to become an Instructional Designer.
However, in order to develop effective learning programs, you should have a strong understanding of the key elements and theory that underpin the instructional design process – including how to conduct a learning needs analysis (LNA), adult learning principles and assessment strategies.
An IDA or DLD course will help you to develop this knowledge and understanding.

The edx instructional design courses and toolkit is suited to both those who are new to Instructional Design and those seeking to refine or specialise their skills.
Importantly, each course gives the participants a license to use the included Instructional Design templates in perpetuity.
By the end of the course, participants will not only have learned about Instructional Design, they will have applied the knowledge and skills to create their own set of learning materials using edx educational technology.
This course represents tremendous value for money, it’s really practical and gave me all the tools I need – following the process outlined is a great way to engender the confidence and support of stakeholders

This ID course included great templates and tools beyond just standard learning materials. A fantastic and helpful head-start on creating a program for my organisation that I received lots of positive feedback on.
Joan L&D Manager
The toolkit is fantastic – more detailed and hands-on than I expected. Not just theory information.
