What is Instructional Design?

Instructional Design - instructional design is the crafting of experiences that build knowledge and skills in a way that is appealing and impactful.


Why we talk about this at Chalkup

How do we reach the learner? Excite them? And build their skills based on what we know they need and respond to?

Not to oversimplify instructional design - or learning design - but creating a course in a learning management system is a good example of delivering information to a learner in a way that is, hopefully, engaging and effective.

But when we get into edtech territory, all too often instructional design starts to seem a lot like web design. And not all teachers are web designers. So this can be frustrating. That's why so much of the work that goes into building our platform focuses on ensuring that anyone who uses it can create a beautiful, engaging course.
