This summer and fall, Austin ASTD is piloting a program for those interested in rapid e-learning design and development. Complete the program and develop a professional module for your portfolio! 

To learn more about this first of a kind program offered by Austin ASTD check out this flyer.

Part 1: Web-Based Training (WBT) Design Fundamentals 

Great Voyages is a series of five hour-long presentations on the journey encountered when you transition instructor-led training to web-based training. Topics include:

1.       Getting started and key concepts
2.       Understanding the web as a medium
3.       How to write for the web based on how people   read online
4.       Visual design

5.       Usability and accessibility

While the subject of this series is creating online training, it is important to note that these presentations are reproduction of live presentations and were not redesigned to implement best practices for online courses. Topics in the series are broad based and cover many different approaches to learning online. Concepts and recommendations are not targeted to any particular development tool. Many of the examples were created with applications other than rapid e-learning development tools.

This course is designed for learning and development professionals who have solid understanding of instructional design principles, but who have little to no experience designing online training.


The training is designed to be viewed on any PC or Mac and should work with all of the popular browsers. It should also work on iPads. 


Web link available by July 15. And Even more great news! There is no end date for availability. Take the WBT  on your own schedule. 

(For best results, complete before Part 3.) 

There is no need to sign up online for the WBT as you can take it at your own pace!

Her visual art background, college-level teaching experience, and web design work naturally lead to her interest in E-Learning.
