Are you a teacher or instructor looking for ways to transform your ideas into accessible, online learning content? Would you like to try your hand at instructional design? This self-guided, project-based course will help you design an online mini-course for a learning management system, using sound instructional design principles. It will guide you through the course development process, step by step. You’ll learn how to identify your audience and create specific learning goals, how to design for a variety of learners, how to create authentic assessments, and more. You’ll collect badges along the way, and when you’ve finished all the course tasks, you’ll receive a certificate of completion.
