Instructional Design Certification


Strengthscape’s Instructional Design Certification course encompasses a new way of learning content designing principles and strategies. Learning is a process and we, at Strengthscape, understand that very well.

Literally speaking, Instructional Design (ID) is a branch that focuses on designing effective instructions and is not synonymous with content development. Instead content development forms just a fraction of it.

Instructional Design is a comprehensive process that starts with identifying and analyzing human performance problems and then designing effective and efficient interventions to solve those problems. Therefore, instructional design is not limited to content creation, it involves much more.

As an instructional designer, one is expected to identify training needs, assess the performance problem for viability, design and develop an appropriate intervention with content, implement the intervention and then evaluate its effectiveness. The intervention can be both Instruction-led, VILT, or eLearning.

Instructional Design has now gained momentum due to the focused emphasis on User Experience (UX) Design. Learners require an environment of experiential learning, to enable them to create meaning and relevance out of the context presented.

This, of course, was not possible with the traditional approach to creating instructions. Today multiple layers must be incorporated to make the result enriching and with a high return on investment.

Instructional Design, in short, helps to understand those layers. ID provides the principles needed to construct effective instructions, to enhance learner experience and the overall learning and development journey.


Instructional Design can help you with:

  • Analyzing training needs:
    ID can help to identify specific performance problems by asking the right questions which becomes the basis for designing effective interventions.
  • Designing the intervention:
    From choosing the right medium to designing effective session plans, ID gives you principles to design the intervention basis the information collected from the analysis.
  • Developing the content:
    ID explains how to write effectively using the exploratory form, and to create content of Instructor-led training and storyboards, for eLearning modules. It also explains how to focus on human cognition and adult learning characteristics when creating content.
  • Implementing the intervention:
    Helps prepare a checklist for ensuring all the systems and processes are in place to manage, support, and deliver the intervention.
  • Evaluation of the intervention:
    Evaluation is equally important as designing and implementation. It helps to know whether the objectives were met. ID helps to plan objective evaluation techniques.

Instructional Design has now gained momentum due to the entire emphasis on User Experience (UX) Design. Learners now need to be given an environment of experiential learning where they can create meaning and relevance out of the context.

This, of course, is not possible with a traditional mindset of creating instructions. Various layers need to be incorporated to make the result enriching and give a high return on investment.

Instructional Design Certification helps to understand those layers and gives principles to construct effective instructions that further enhance learner experience and overall learning and development.

Strengthscape’s Instructional Design Certification course encompasses a new way of learning content designing principles and strategies. Learning is a process and we, at Strengthscape, understand that very well. Our course has a structured approach and at the same time gives flexibility to learners to learn at their own pace. The course delves deeper into the various theories and models of Instructional Design touching upon the role of human cognition.

The objective of the course is to impart knowledge on how to write effective learning content both for ILT and eLearning using instructional design principles and methodologies. The course consists of practical examples and practice sessions that will help the learners to build their skills successfully.

  • A blend of Classroom training and virtual sessions (both synchronous and asynchronous) training methodologies. The course is enriched with audio, visuals, assessments as well as follow-up sessions for clarifications and reiterations.
  • Access to Strengthscape’s Learning Management System (LMS) which has a range of learning materials starting with the course manual, videos, eLearning content, podcasts, and a whole lot of assessments that promote self-paced learning and help participants become confident about what is being taught.
  • The course manual is divided into 5 modules. Each module has chapters and units.
  • Face-to-Face Instructional Design: There will be two-day classroom training (total of 16 hours) that will cover the important sections of the course material along with practice sessions. A one-day (6 hours) virtual follow-up session will be conducted to review assignments and clarify doubts. This will be followed by 4 hours of virtual sessions on Rapid Authoring Tools. After completing all these three aspects, participants are expected to complete a live project and take the final assessment. The certificate will be dependent on the successful completion of all these aspects.
  • Online Instructional Design Certification: 24 hours of live virtual Instructor-led sessions conducted every weekend spread over 6 sessions of 4 hours each. This includes a live project and a final assessment.
  • Enterprise version: Preferably, the sessions will include 2-days of the face-to-face instructor-led sessions on Instructional Design and 16 hours of virtual sessions on Rapid Authoring Tools. This is open to client customization. Participants will be given access to the LMS and will need to complete the live project and final assessment for the certification.
  • Participants are expected to go through LMS and read the manual, watch videos and listen to podcasts as well as read any additional reading material that is provided.
  • Curriculum developers.
  • Teachers and Educators.
  • Training, managers, or coordinators.
  • Human Resource professionals.
  • Learning & Organization Development Experts.
  • Individuals seeking a career change or position within the eLearning instructional design field.
  • Professionals who have taken on training roles within their department.
  • Access to Learning Management System (LMS) with Course Manual.
  • 1-year complimentary access to the Digital Library.
  • Assignments and worksheets on the LMS.


We believe that leaders are made. Through careful nurturing, structured learning, and enriching experience. Nurture wins over nature.


We believe that humans have an unlimited capacity to learn. You may differ in your natural talents, preferences, and learning styles; but YOU can be whatever YOU set out to be. The world is your oyster!


The role of a facilitator and trainer in adult learning, is to challenge the assumptions,reframe the experience, and change perspectives. They enable learning by creating conversations that enable the learners to reflect on their own personalities, experiences, and priorities.


Teamwork that leads to high, consistent performance, represents the highest form of competitive advantage. Teamwork is not a function of time, role, or situation, but is an outcome of a collective goal – a conscious, consistent, and targeted effort by each of the team members.
