Digital learning design

“Digital learning design involves the development and implementation of digital content for education and training”

With more and more businesses opting to use digital media, educational technology and web-based learning to train their employees, the digital learning design apprenticeship was developed to train e-learning designers in the art of designing, developing and implementing strategies and content for digital learning. As a digital learning design apprentice, you’ll take on a role as a digital learning assistant and build simple digital content using rapid authoring tools and pre-designed templates. Or you’ll work as a virtual learning environment administrator, supporting the creation of online courses and instructional web projects. A technology-enhanced learning coordinator will see you working within a college to provide support for teaching staff in the delivery and development of digital learning resources. The higher apprenticeship provides a route into senior roles within digital learning. You’ll lead projects, advise on technology development or maintain learning environments.
