About

Franklin University’s M.S. Instructional Design & Learning Technology (IDLT) degree program and our faculty of industry experts puts you at the forefront of this growing industry with exciting career options. With our program, you’ll learn how to analyze learning needs, design solutions and evaluate effectiveness.

Overview

Franklin University’s online Instructional Design and Learning Technology degree program focuses on instructional design as a means to drive performance improvement. Instructional design focuses on the delivery of transformational training and education solutions to develop the skills and knowledge of workers.

In addition to using learning and instructional theory to ensure quality of instruction, our IDLT curriculum also integrates human performance improvement. Related coursework examines the specific causes leading to poor performance, and analyzes how to overcome them by studying how a person operates in a specific setting, which skills they need to be successful, and which strategies will help enable them to succeed.

Combined, these two areas will arm you to become a change agent that designs innovative learning and performance improvement strategies that close the gap on an organization’s most pressing performance problems.

Career

Franklin’s instructional design master's program curriculum is designed to industry standards, including ATD and ISPI, and teaches you skills highly sought after by employers in these areas: instructional systems design, educational technology, eLearning development, content development, and performance improvement. As a result, you’ll be well prepared to enter or advance your career as an instructional designer, trainer or educator.

Plus, you’ll assemble and present a portfolio of work, so you’ll be ready to share actual samples of instructional materials you’ve designed with potential employers. And you will gain hands-on experience with industry software and leverage emerging technologies to design instruction, including e-learning.
