Education and training are going through a digital transformation that focuses on the learner’s experience. Learn to create training and education programs that solve a specific problem, are human-centered, personalize the learning experience to the user, and reflect an interdisciplinary balance between curriculum, design thinking and UX design.
What is Learning Experience Design (LXD)?
With the proliferation of online courses and gamified learning apps, today’s audiences expect experiential learning programs that go beyond simply providing outlines and reading materials.
A learner needs an experience that captivates their attention across different mediums, includes motivational strategies, and reinforces knowledge retention and application. An LX Designer blends organizational objectives with these user preferences in a human-centered and goal-oriented way to improve job performance.
What you will learn
In this three-course certificate, senior LX Design instructors will guide you on how to:
- Consider a wide range of ongoing solutions that solve a problem
- Identify user experiences that align with the needs of learners and the objectives of an organization
- Develop content curation strategies to create diverse learning experiences
- Leverage current collaboration technologies
- Use UX and design thinking principles to build a curriculum that reflects learner needs and desired outcomes
This program, developed by senior practitioners, is designed around an LXD project that starts in Course #1 and threads through each course in the certificate, aligning with course milestones along the way. This just-in-time learning format follows the process and flow of a real-world LXD professional, ensuring that students are gaining skills and techniques that directly support the type of work they would be doing on the job. In addition to instructor insights, students are encouraged to engage with their classmates in assigned Learning Pods—a small group of peers to share project feedback and recommendations.
Designed with you in mind, the flexible study options allow you to complete the program at a pace that suits your lifestyle—and faster than LXD programs at other institutions.
