Learning design is so much more than cutting and pasting text and images. It is about understanding the psychology of learning and designing learning experiences that engage, excite and enable people to practice, store, retrieve and apply the learning.
Designers have expertise in how learning experiences can be designed.
There are a number of factors and principles that underpin a design and recommendations, including:
- Knowledge about learning theories and how those work online and in face to face environments
- Ability to create different types of learning activities
- Create ways to engage students through the learning experience
- Ensure learning activities are aligned to learning outcomes
