Certificate Overview

Certificate Overview

Learners and managers are demanding more effective and efficient learning times due to rapidly changing topics, on-the-job performance needs, an abundance of mobile learning tools and faster and more reliable Internet connections. This interactive certificate invites you to "rethink" and "invigorate" the design of your current content for faster development and easier learning suited for those who are on-the-move, on-the-job and connected with mobile technologies. We'll examine the methods of microlearning content design and delivery that facilitates quick transfer of knowledge and application. This certificate is appropriate for those who design and implement rapid eLearning, mobile learning, performance support learning, and collaborative learning environments.

This is not a software course. This certificate is not about authoring and mobile software. It focuses on content development, design and delivery. It does not promote a singular product, but rather uses multiple products for illustration purposes. The course will focus on eLearning and performance support systems rather than classroom training.
