  • Vanessa Flynn
    Vanessa Flynn Australia Great course, but it would be even better if more examples of real life application could be included. For example, you could give a scenario at the start, and use the same scenario as the course progresses. Things to include could be questions to ask the SMEs, etc. 2016-07-08 04:07:45

  • Pamela Ryan
    Pamela Ryan United States of America The course was great! It helped me understand why courses are developed as they are to ensure multiple learning styles are accommodated to keep participants engaged. In addition to ideas to use to ensure retention. I wrote my first course and realized how difficult it can be and have a better respect for the effort that goes into course design, even when the course does not accommodate my learning style. 2016-05-27 14:05:15

    Taaha Shaikh India I have successfully completed the Introduction to Instructional Systems Design Course and must say that I really am pleased with it. It is quite comprehensive, as well as informative and engaging. The only thing I feel which is lacking is more samples of practical examples of courses designed using ISD. Marina Arshavskiy and Alison ought to feel really proud for delivering such a wonderful resource for those just getting started. 2016-05-17 08:05:39
