If your business needs to develop effective, memorable eLearning courses for your employees, then using experienced instructional designers is essential. Not only do instructional designers take the time to understand their learners, but they address gaps in performance to drive further skill and knowledge development. 

From there, instructional design experts carefully select the ideal combination of learning modalities to achieve the learning goals. Common examples of modalities include microlearning, job-aids, self-paced digital learning, action planners, interactions or gamification to help ensure the new skills are integrated successfully into the learner’s job.

What Is Effective Instructional Design?

Through instructional design for eLearning course development, knowledge isn’t only presented, but it is applied. Through the process of assessing needs and designing a unique learning process, instructional design acts as a systematic method of producing curricula. 

‍When you work with Allegro Media Design for your instructional design needs, here are some benefits you can expect:

Real-life examples

Providing context surrounding the subject and connecting the learner to real-world examples and case studies allows them to get the most out of their learning experience.

When Is Instructional Design Needed?

Our instructional designers produce high-quality training materials, and everything we produce passes through a robust quality assurance process before it is presented to the client. This allows us to deliver the most effective, engaging materials for you and your business. If you need training documentation in another language, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Facilitator scripts

Facilitator scripts can be very useful for ensuring consistency in facilitation, especially when multiple facilitators are involved. They can also help facilitators stay on track and cover all the necessary topics in a given time frame. Additionally, facilitator scripts can be a helpful tool for novice facilitators who may be less confident in their ability to lead a group discussion.

I am always very happy and encouraged when receiving a VO request from Allegro Media- Jeff always provides clear direction and encourages me to deliver a recording that is just not a product, but a great experience for his clients. The content provided is always on point, and the direction is easy to follow - If I have a question on style or pronunciation, Jeff is always available to assist which makes getting the job done in a timely manner and right the first time!

We were looking for a rock-solid Learning Development shop that could augment our team as well tackle projects independently and Allegro was the perfect fit. We partnered with Allegro for all our voice-over needs, development of custom eLearning courses, and the coordination of multi-camera video shoots at our executive sales retreats. The Allegro team allowed our small internal learning org to scale and meet the needs of the nation-wide supply chain that we supported. Thanks Jeff, Sara, and team!
