Web Design

The Web Design aspect takes data, information, and the learning objects that you build — to showcase it in a way that's engaging. With their own platforms – it's online.

You can take a lot of the languages you learn and use them in other areas, such as Instructional Design. We use JavaScript inside Adobe Captivate to do some things that Captivate itself can't do. And to preview the Captivate file, we need to show it as an HTML file in the Browser.

The Web Designer may also be asked to configure or customize the LMS landing pages.

Web Design Tools:
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Bootstrap
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery

e-Learning Design

Discover how Learning and Engagement can be developed and produced in an online format.

The e-Learning developer isn't just someone who develops an e-Learning course. There's a lot that goes into constructing an online course or Instructor Led Training webinar - developing curriculum, finding what outside educational materials you can use, and bringing it together in a way that's engaging, that really inspires your audience to go out and do it. That's a true e-Learning developer.
