Intructional Designer vs E-Learning Specialist
I have been building e-Learning courses for about two years in my present job, as a Trainer. My organization is growing and we are looking at creating an actual e-Learning unit. Besides my University Degree in Information Technology, and a certificate program in Teaching and Training Adults, I do not have any formal e-Learning training.
I have the opportunity to upgrade my skillsets, and shape my new job title. The plan is for me to be more of an instructional designer in the e-Learning unit, with specialized skills, and hire one or two developers to write, and author the courses.
My questions are, should I look into taking courses in Instructional Design, or more generic e-Learning specific courses? My job title is most probably going to be e-Leaning Specialist. Which would help me in my future endeavours? Does anyone know of any good online courses to take for instructional design?
Thank you in advance.
