  • What does a learning designer do?Take content on any given subject provided by a client, and turn it into an interesting, engaging, well written piece of online training. To do that….
  • Wide range of high profile clientsBig focus on customer service – we want all clients to want to come back for more.
  • What open source meansCorporate clients becoming more interested in open sourceMoodle not really an LMSNeeds lots of customisation for corporates
  • Put the grad role in the middle and other roles around them. Remove the detailed text
  • Dani starts.
  • One of the things that really underpinned that initial training was creating our own mini 10 minute piece of e-learning. We did this by spending time with each of the different teams, then went away and applied to our own project. Sales – how we get business, what goes into a proposal etc Tech - What’s possible and what’s not. We knew what we were working with for our projects Graphics – I learnt how different peoples’ vision can be – how important it is to describe in detail or find an image yourself if you need something specific, but also how well it can work out if you leave it up to the GAs. We went away and sourced the graphics for our courses. Build – How a course goes from a script to a finished module. After thinking I was one of the least technical people ever, I learnt how to use xml and we built each our own courses. Great to gain extra skills like that through the grad scheme. Testing – How we make sure that all the projects that go out of the door are up to standard – proof reading, checking the functionality, a fresh pair of eyes. I learnt just how difficult QA is, and also how to point out issues in a constructive way.
  • After those first couple of months, there’s a gradual move into working on ‘real’ projects. An overview of what a learning designer does on a day-to-day basis. There’s so much variety and each week is different, but I’ll take you through a typical week.
  • How do we get there?1 – All I knew was my own research on e-learning. First couple of months were a bit of a crash course in all key areas of the job, from getting to grips with content, planning the structure of a module and writing scripts2 – Mentors are key points of contact throughout the training – lots of support, answering questions, giving feedback. Really supportive environment3 – Support each other, often all do the same task separately then learn from each other4 – Reinforce what we’re learning with personal learning journal5 – Spend time with different teams – great way of getting to know everyone as well as what goes into a project6 – More coming up
