Learning Design Module – Learn how to create your own engaging online educational & training content

eLearning Africa presents the online Learning Design [Certificate] Programme with Ferhana Dostmohamed.

Following a very successful run of the first series, and due to high demand, we are pleased to offer the Learning Course once again in September and October 2021. The practical tips and best practices will allow you to immediately make incremental enhancements to your learning design and content development projects.

Here are some things learners have said about the course:

‘I participated in the just ended eLearning Africa Academy Course and I must say I am delighted by the delivery of the course by Ferhana. She is experienced and readily shared her vast knowledge with the participants. Her enthusiasm of the subject is infectious as I am now inspired to plunge into the conversion of our learning activities to online delivery.’

‘I learned a lot about available options for tools and technologies, beyond what I knew already.’

‘Presenter has broad and deep knowledge of the course.’

Learning Design has become a critical skill for institutions to respond to changes in their industry and mobilise their workforce.

This programme helps you understand the principles of learning design so that you can build effective learning experiences by improving how you assess the learning needs, structure the content and finally, develop the material using audio, visual and storytelling skills.

This programme is for institutions, educational and training specialists who want to:

  1. Understand the design process – especially when working with an external provider
  2. Enhance their skills and build in-house capability to create their own education and training content
  3. Create digital modes of learning content
  4. Build more engaging learning content and use a variety of learning modalities
