    What Is Instructional Design?

    In the context of workplace training and learning, instructional design refers to the process by which the learning needs of employees are analyzed and relevant instructions or training materials are developed.

    How to Design Instructional Material?

    • Conduct a needs analysis to identify the requirements of the learners. At the same time recognize the training and business needs.
    • Create a learner’s profile that includes information on their responsibilities, roles, challenges, knowledge in the topic the learning material will be based on, etc.
    • Set objectives for the course or training program. They should be based on the outcomes you wish to achieve at the completion of the training.
    • Decide on the instructional approach for the course or the training program once you have selected a topic for it.
    • Make use of storyboards to organize the content and identify the flow of your program. Use them to plan the structure of content, images, icons etc.
    • Create a prototype of your course to test it out for its effectiveness. For example, if it is an eLearning course, you can try this out with UI mockup templates.
    • Once the program is launched, continuously monitor it to understand whether it’s working. Mark down areas you want to improve.
    • Make sure to adhere to instructional design models when you are creating your learning material or training programs.
