Sr. Instructional Designer

Like homeowners faced with the task of making home improvements, instructional designers might find themselves overwhelmed with the notion of making updates to an existing course. But what if there were five simple DIY steps to making renovations or additions to improve the overall usability, effectiveness, and look of your course?

In this unique learning experience, you'll learn five simple DIY steps to an eLearning remodel. You'll identify the reasons why remodeling can be a cost-effective way to expand your current list of learning opportunities. You'll explore ways to identify your remodeling goals, set priorities, and establish a budget. You'll determine if you need to hire a team of experts, or if you can make the revisions yourself. You'll observe demo day and learn how to declutter and get organized before the construction begins. Lastly, you'll leave this session with an easy-to-follow punch list to help complete your eLearning fixer-upper.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to identify your remodeling goal(s) and set priorities
  • How to make pre-construction plans to outline your remodel, secure any permits (i.e., SME or stakeholder approvals), and order building materials or software needed to complete the job
  • Ways not to overextend yourself financially or with your time
  • How to make minor cosmetic changes, such as improvements to the landscape, or minor upgrades to the exterior and interior of the course using visual design principles
