Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso

Technology, digital media, and mobile access have changed how people learn. Today’s students want to be engaged and self-directed with digital content, available anytime, anywhere. This is a challenge for instructional designers as they create online learning experiences.

In this course, you will step into the shoes of a learner and apply learning theories to your own personal experiences. You will explore various learning theories, examine related research, and practice applying these concepts to real-world problems you are interested in solving. Furthermore, you will learn about the trends and skills instructional designers use to analyze and solve instructional problems. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of how learning works and learn to employ well-researched principles to tackle complex and diverse challenges that individuals face in their personal and professional lives.

By the end of this course, you will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to start developing your own learning solution.

Previous background in teaching or professional development is a plus but not required. Join us and launch your career as an instructional designer.

This course is part of the Instructional Design and Technology MicroMaster’s program from UMGC. Upon completion of the program and receipt of the verified MicroMaster’s certificate, learners may then transition into the full UMGC Master’s Program in Learning Design and Technology. See the MicroMasters program page for more information.

How long does a student have to apply to and complete the full UMGC degree?

To ensure that your program remains relevant and up-to-date, UMGC sets time limits for completing a program. Students have five (5) consecutive years from the start of the graduate degree to complete their degree. For students who start with a MicroMasters, their “time clock” begins on the date that they complete their last course in the MicroMasters program and receive their Verified Certificate. This means that students should apply to UMGC promptly to begin the degree and have as much time as possible to complete it.

Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
