Interested to learn about Instruction Design

Hi all,

I would like to learn more about Instructional Design. I would like to become an Instructional Designer one day. I've been developing Elearning courses for 3 years now, mainly via Storyline 2.

 

Could you please point me to the relevant resources that could help me learn more about this topic?

Thanks,

Virak

Hello Ambika,

Deciding whether or not to obtain a formal education is a personal choice.  I have worked with individuals who are self-taught and those who have formal education in the field, including myself.  As far as skill level it is all based on the effort each person.  In my personal experience, my degree allowed me to understand better how we learn, how to manage projects, and communicate with stakeholders and subject matter experts. Resources such as E-Learning Heroes allowed me to learn how to build better courses.
