The Art of Reviewing course is crisp, clear and comprehensive. It talks about all the elements of reviewing very logically, which helped me internalise the learnings of this course very easily. While working as a team, though we are all aware that we are all working towards the same goal and are not in competition with each other, we often tend to lose track of this fact. The first video in the course talks about this from an ID reviewer perspective and it is the most important learning for me from this course. This entire course will help me review other people’s work with more awareness...Read more
I joined ID mentors as a complete novice student. I had little experience in technical writing but no clue about Instructional Designing. So to say ‘I started from scratch’. I took the beginners level 1 and intermediate level 2 courses. Before the start of course schedules, there is a contact session with the course mentor - Ms. Purnima Valiathan. She takes the student through the entire program, the approach, and the learning objective of the program. In short, what one is expected to achieve at the end of the course episode. Level 1 is easy to understand and...Read more

We went to ID Mentors in late 2015 just as we were on the verge of launching a major Mentor Development Workshop. We had the content but it just did not look professional enough or flow well. They turned it around in 3 weeks adding beautiful visuals and interactions. Äny one who saw it asked, “Who has made this?” Soon, our team started calling them the Delhi girls. Then, we had an Investor program to develop. This time we did not have the content. All we had were some rough slides and a draft agenda. My team said, “Bring the Delhi girls.” And they very efficiently and quietly just...Read more
Professional expertise in any field of work is founded on two major ideologies: passion for learning and ingenuity. At ID Mentors (www.purnima-valiathan.com), I see the perfect blend and balance of the two. Ably and efficiently led by Purnima Valiathan, ID Mentors has trainings that are original, practical, and right-away applicable! What's unique about these trainings is that the content is not "dumped" on the user. Instead, the user is a constant companion of the trainer as she glides along the nuances of the elearning domain with tremendous lucidity. The user, therefore, is "right there"...Read more
My first experience with ID Mentors was when I administered the ID flair test to screen my ID team members. The scientific evaluation validated my team’s ID skills and helped me zero in on learning gaps. One of the challenges I face as an ID Head is training diverse groups of IDs. Another ID Mentors’ course – Discover ID for Beginners Course – has helped me address this challenge. I have been recommending this course to my content writers and junior IDs. Every participant I have suggested this course to has found the content practical and relevant to their daily tasks. The...Read more
