UK instructional design services for organisations that seek excellence

Good instructional design harnesses decades of theory in how people learn and blends it with creativity to produce rich and engaging course content. Whether you work in business, education, or for other organisations that use e-learning content, you’ll want to ensure that you have applied instructional design best practices. It could be the difference between success and failure for you and your courses.

Our process to Instructional Design success

Analysis

Instructional design should begin with a thorough analysis of why you are considering training. What do the learners require and is a training course the best way of delivering it? We’ll help you establish this, and as long as you still feel training is the way forward, we can then work together to articulate your learning outcomes and how your course content will be delivered.

Design and develop

We can then start the training design and development. Here we’ll consider the course content, any support materials and the user experience as learners progress through the course. We’ll also build the digital platform through which the course is delivered.

Testing

When it is built, you are all set to implement your course. But our work is not finished. Because we’ll help you evaluate the success of the course and see whether it can be improved for future use.

  • What instructional design models are there?

    The above approach to instructional design is known as the ADDIE model. It stands for analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. It is one of the most widely-used instructional design models in the UK. But there are other approaches that differ to varying degrees.

    These include Agile or Rapid Prototyping, Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction, the Dick and Carey Model, the Successive Approximation Model (SAM), the Kemp Design Model and Cathy Moore’s Action Mapping.

    From our team, we will match an instructional designer to meet your needs, and if an alternative model to ADDIE is a better fit for you then we can provide that.

  • What does a course look like without instructional design?

    When you do not invest in training design for your e-learning content you are leaving the success of your project to chance. We can provide a slick and stable platform, but if the content is not engaging to your audience there is a significant risk you will not achieve your outcomes. This may be due to a one-dimensional teaching style, poor copy, limited user interaction or a lack of feedback to name just a few of the reasons.

    In contrast, an e-learning course with an instructional design-led approach will be well thought out, appeal to different learning styles, and reward users with regular feedback and clear signs of their progression.
