311 Becoming a Learning Experience Designer

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, September 30

Instructional Design


Learning and development professionals are under pressure to produce real results. Many times the traditional methods of instructional design and content development are not getting the job done. We have to think differently on how to design, develop, and leverage technology to create learning experiences that actually impact performance and get the results that matter.

In this session you will learn the importance of building experiences in the form of online scenarios, simulations, and real-world on-the-job tasks. You’ll leave understanding better how to apply research-based guidelines to design, structure, and sequence experiences into optimized learning paths. You’ll see to how to leverage technology, especially mobile and the Experience API (formerly Tin Can) to deliver, capture, and track learning experiences. Finally, in this session you’ll see examples of how learning-experience designers are transforming how people learn professional, technical, sales, and leadership skills.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to capture the experiences of experts
  • How to design effective learning experiences
  • How to sequence learning experiences into an optimized learning path
  • How to use mobile and the Experience API to capture and track real-world experience

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
The Experience API (xAPI) and mobile technology.
