Here are some real-world examples of what instructional designers do:
A business is looking to expand with another location. Currently their training was done in a small-scale by the owner or old excel files but when expanding, they will need a scalable training program to meet the needs of the new business and any new businesses in the future. The owner hired an instructional designer to design and develop scalable eLearning training for their business.
A business hired an instructional designer full-time to evaluate and improve current programs with the training department, analyze performance and pain points to develop new programs, and facilitate train-the-trainer events.
A business had a pain point surrounding customer retention and use of products. They tasked their instructional design team with developing a customer education program for onboarding new customers and assisting current customers with the use of the product. This program helped lower the number of requests for assistance and improved customer retention.
A school hired an instructional designer consultant to develop a new class offering.
Any business can benefit from having an instructional designer on staff or hiring a consultant. If you have questions or are interested in seeing how I can benefit your business, visit my website at www.jackpinelearning.com or contact me here.
