About ID Certificate

Instructional Design (ID) is the systematic approach to determining the need for instruction, designing and developing objectives, content, and assessments around that need, and evaluating the effectiveness of your design in relationship to instruction.

Our program models best practices in the field by teaching learners how to design effective instruction for instructor led or web-based delivery through the alignment of appropriate instructional strategies and assessments.

This process can be helpful whether you are starting from scratch or redesigning (improving) existing instruction.

The program also introduces strategies for developing computer-mediated training and matching technology tools to instructional problems. Finally, students learn skills for managing the instructional design process whether they are responsible for one project or multiple. (Source)
