Design better learning experiences for all of your audiences

Today’s learners have grown to expect efficient, easy, useful experiences similar to what they encounter every day online, and on their phones, making it challenging for educators and learning organizations to keep up. To stay ahead of the curve in this fast-evolving digital landscape, Learning Experience Design (LxD) skills are fast becoming a necessity in the corporate learning space.

The OISE Learning Experience Design Certificate combines user experience design methodology, instructional systems design, and educational pedagogy/andragogy to equip education professionals with a robust learner-centric toolkit for designing better learner interactions with enhanced sensory experiences.

Developed by Canada’s leading faculty of education*, this Certificate program is delivered by award-winning facilitators and industry professionals. It can be completed 100% online in as little as one year, enabling you to participate from anywhere in the world.
