What are the most effective uses/tips to become an Instructional Designer?

Want to become an Instructional Designer, not just a good Instructional Designer, but a great Instructional Designer? Then add my 3 top tips to your Instructional Design toolbox!

  • Start with strong, concise objectives. Everything from the learning itself to evaluation starts with an excellent set of objectives. They are your guide.
  • If you are not a good writer, hone your writing skills. Most excellent Instructional Designers are also excellent writers. They know how to develop crisp, clear materials.
  • Know your audience! If you are developing eLearning scripts, use language and graphics that makes sense to the learner. I worked for a company where we hired an external vendor to develop an eLearning course, and the text read like a Shakespearean actor developed the script!
