The eLearning Superhuman program

The eLearning superhuman program 

A common question that people who are new to eLearning ask is, ‘What skills do I need to make great eLearning?’ Designing high-impact eLearning is a ‘Renaissance skill’. it takes a complex mixture of instructional design, visual communication design and media design. Our eLearning Superhuman program is a project-based program designed to help you become an ‘eLearning Superman’ who can design effective and engaging online learning.

In the past we have only run this program for clients when they begin with learning technologies or when we are working to embed digital learning design and development capabilities in their team. We are opening up the program to a wider audience. 

The structure of program follows the instructional design process:

  • Analysing and understanding the problem and audience

  • Designing and storyboarding

  • Prototyping

  • Developing

  • Evaluating

Topics to be covered:

  • Instructional design models

  • Project management and the eLearning model

  • Approaches to storyboarding

  • Writing for eLearning

  • User interface design

  • Visual design for eLearning

  • Using media in eLearning

  • Designing program evaluation and impact measurement

 We can customise the topics to the needs of your project.

Who should attend

This program is designed for people:

  • who are just getting started in eLearning

  • who might have designed only a few modules and want to improve.

If you’re an experienced instructional designer this program is not for you.

icon format


The learning experience is project based. During the program you will design and develop one or more eLearning modules. There will be weekly virtual classroom sessions plus one-on-one coaching time every fortnight. In the early part of the program the virtual classroom sessions will cover the basics of eLearning design and development. In later stages these sessions will be about the group supporting each others’ project work.
