eLearning Developer Tools

  • Choose Your Path to Successful eLearning Development

    Demand is growing for people with skills in eLearning technology, instructional design, and online course development. Lambton College offers you two pathways to join the rapidly expanding field of eLearning design and development. You can focus on specific skills or you can pursue an Ontario Graduate Certificate in Advanced Teaching – eLearning & Instructional Design. The best part is, you don’t have to decide ahead of time which option you want to pursue. Lambton College’s iACT delivery model gives you the freedom to choose the path that suits you. You pay for only the courses and micro-credentials you want, so you can start by taking a few courses and decide later if you want to register in the full program. If you decide to register in the program, you can do so seamlessly.

    eLearning Professional Development Toolkit

    Want to focus on building specific skills without pursuing a full program? You can use the courses in the eLearning & Instructional Design (ATDS) program as your professional development tool kit. Simply choose the individual courses and micro-credentials you need to build the specific skills you’re targeting. If you decide later that you want to pursue the certificate, you can do so at any time.
