Best Certificate to Get for Instructional Design
Happy Friday! and Good Morning from sunny London, UK.
I couldn't find any recent posts on this topic (well anything less than 2 years old), so here goes...
I hope you are all safe and well. I have been creating Elearning for companies I have worked for, for several years (it's been about 25% of my job). However, I am breaking out on my own and going freelance.
I am currently well on the way to mastering Storyline 360, so that's one tick.
However, even though I have been doing it for years, I feel a need to evaluate my Elearning Instructional Design techniques and take what I can offer to another level.
In short, I am looking for where I can get the best, and most recognized training and potentially a certificate that demonstrates my level of competence in elearning instructional design.
Correct me if I am wrong, but there doesn't seem to be an industry standard recognized certificate.
I am currently looking at the two options listed below and would really appreciate some feedback from any of you on whether you think they are worth it, and on what your experiences are. Have any of you done either of these? Are there others I should be considering? Am I wasting my time and I just need to have an outstanding portfolio of my work on my site and that will be enough?
This is a business for me so I have the mindset of I don't mind paying for the education, if it is going to get me to were I want to go must faster with less frustrating mistakes and it's going to teach me skills and provide information that might take me a few years to gather or experience myself. However, I don't want to be studying for years. Just a few weeks max is what I am looking for.
Thanks in Advance
