Learnnovators, a leading e-learning company in India, has published “Instructional Designers! Don’t Put The Cart Before The Horse” as the latest edition of their blog post.
In this article, Srividya Kumar, their Co-Founder, discusses the importance of mastering the core skills of instructional design, such as understanding how people learn and designing effective learning experiences, before diving into learning all the shiny extras such as authoring tools.
Here’s an excerpt from the post:
“Learning the tools before learning the basics I’ve outlined above is a bit like a doctor trying to learn the names of medicines and their brands, before gaining an understanding of the human body and the characteristics of the disease. Yes, you need to know the types of medication and treatments available, which pharmaceutical… The more secondary skills you acquire, the better your chances of landing a job and growing in it. But you need the primary skills in order to be considered an instructional designer.”
