I love the gamification section of the training program. It really drove home that adults love to learn through fun, engaging activities.

My favorite takeaways were watching Peggy effortlessly move the class from one activity to the other, injecting fun into training and the tiny details that Peggy went into to get us thinking about every aspect of facilitation. I would definitely love to attend another program.

My favorite part of the program was learning the ins and outs of the ADDIE model and immediately applying my new knowledge to my current workload. I especially enjoyed the intersession work because it allowed me to work one-on-one with the facilitator and receive feedback on my current work projects from an expert in instructional design. It was...

I was given many tools that I can use as I begin to design learning content. Much of what I learned is directly applicable and I can use it immediately. The program provides a very structured and interactive learning environment for an e-learning course. You could tell the instructor, Karin Rex, was very knowledgeable and passionate about her cr...

Coming into this program from a company reorganization, I appreciated the basic information that was facilitated in a real-life way. The program went at a comfortable pace and the content was never boring. Other students' experience, questions, and answers were useful. Attending this training course, I put all the puzzle pieces together and made...

This program covered all of the basic information that every trainer needs to know. It also allows you to sit in a room with individuals who are having the same issues that you are having and discuss possible solutions. How to properly prepare for a training using the Training Cycle was very important. I now use it to help me prepare for all of ...

My favorite takeaway from the program was the idea that less is more. Keeping information clean and simple and letting pictures in visuals explain themselves. Also, the importance of evaluations at all levels. The resources that you receive during the class make it worth your time. The sharing by the facilitator and the other participants expand...

I attended to learn more about conducting an effective needs analysis and the associated measurement, but along with meeting that expectation I came away with a much more clear understanding of the importance of well-designed course objectives. You will have plenty of takeaways that you didn't expect.

The program facilitator, Nadine, was excellent! She made the training fun and engaging! This course was my first formal training program and I could not be happier with the content delivered. I will be implementing all that I learned back on the job and look forward to my career ahead now that I have this certification! This program is great for...

This program was a great way to learn about the topic I needed "Change Management" without the need to travel. The 6 week, 2 hour course was interesting and informative with break-out sessions and tons of participation as if you were actually in class in person. Training was top-notch and well-received. I would definitely recommend to anyone ...

This program gives so many great tips on how to tweak designs that are fast and simple. During this program, I was able to use Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning as a more powerful tool during course design. I was also given the tools to help my design documents be more useful.

I am new to change management so found the course to be very informative and insightful. It provided me with the tools I will need to act as a change agent for my organization moving forward.

I would recommend this program for many reasons, but mainly because it is presented in a logical and relevant way, which allowed for me to understand the basics of talent management in a more complex way, once all the content was laid out, discussed, then tied together. This allowed helped me understand how the entire process is a fluid and syne...

I enjoyed the collaboration with colleagues in the same field but with different training. The instructor was very good, especially her organization and presentation of the content. It is a great course to take for those who are new to instructional design.

The course materials are well designed and very practical. The checklists and job aids will be very useful in designing instructional design programs. The program followed best practices in adult learning and focused on practical application. The activities were well designed and respectful of my professional experience and my time.

If you are looking at integrating your talent management/HR components, this is a great way to understand where the integration points and what metrics to analyze.

I would recommend this program because the content was clear and to the point. Fernando was able to explain such a complex topic with real life examples. I was able to understand the important components needed to build a training about multicultural leadership and where to find more information on the topic.

I knew next to nothing about designing curriculum, so everything I learned was great! One of the things that stood out the most was how much time during a training session should be devoted to practice. This program covered the material in a well thought out, systematic manner. This program gave me a solid foundation for continuing in this field.

The program had some great topics on creating synchronous learning sessions that provide a rich, valuable experience to the online learner. The blended learning section was great.

This training was amazing. I learned so much about myself, and recognized behaviors that I had never put an actual name to. I would highly recommend this training for teams. I have recommended that for our new managers academy that we go with a DISC profile. I would HIGHLY recommend this program. It was very insightful.

I would recommend this program because training is a process not an event; as leaders in our industry we need to be constantly finding ways to adapt and improve.

As a longtime "live" trainer, I needed to venture into the 21st century. This was a great introduction to e-learning and design for me, but those in my class who are already designing e-learning also learned new techniques to make their training courses better. The most significant takeaways for me were the CCAF model of training and the 7 keys ...

Simple yet effective tools to apply when designing e-learning courses such as CCAF, 7 keys to enhancing motivation, and the SAM model. I also loved having the opportunity to hear from others in the same industry. Everyone had a different perspective and different background but the passions and challenges were mutual!

Taking this course, I learned not just how to develop experiential learning, but why and how to use "failure" to help the learner succeed. Simulations and experiential learning isn't about choosing the right answer, but getting the learner to think.
