    The course was not only relevant, but also very well curated. It gave an insight into all the topics relevant for instructional designers these days, like gamification, game-based learning, content curation, LXPs, etc., while ensuring that it doesn’t overwhelm the learner. The content of the course was crisp enough. It laid out the main points in an extremely organized manner, giving links to informative articles wherever applicable, thereby ensuring that the content (and its presentation) is ‘just right’ for the learners. I particularly loved the gamification module, in which we learnt how games could be designed to include strategy, motivation, and message. I also liked the application-based exercises following each module.

  2. Informative and engaging


    The course is a loaded mine of information on popular buzzwords in the learning industry. The course is engaging and involves your brain into problem-solving right from the beginning through the first scenario of differently designed learning. I also liked the articles dispersed throughout the course, especially the one on Learning Experience Platforms (LXPs). Modern learners will be able to relate to the examples cited to explain key learning trends.The difference between game-based learning and gamification is clearly explained and with examples.
