What you should know about becoming an Instructional Designer
Informal learning is all about deciding what, where and how we want to learn over the course of our lifetimes. It's the learning that takes place all the time, outside of the classroom, no matter how young or old you are. This certificate is based on the Contextual Model of Learning is a conceptual framework that posits that learning is influenced by the interaction of time and variables within three contexts: personal, sociocultural, and physical.
In this introductory course, we begin developing our knowledge of user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design, and then look at important aspects of Learning Experience Design and how these basic concepts intersect and combine to create a holistic framework for designing powerful learning experiences.
Effective visual design reduces cognitive load, improves retention, and increases learner engagement. In this introductory-level course, you’ll learn simple graphic design principles, then practice applying these principles as you create charts, diagrams, infographics and learning materials for e-learning.
