Learning Experience Pathways

In collaboration with iDesign

Learning Experience (LX) Pathways is a competency-based educational journey for those interested in becoming an Instructional Technologist, Learning Architect, or Online Instructor. These online programs provide learning opportunities for aspiring instructional design and technology professionals. 

LX Pathways offers learners a “choose your own adventure” approach to acquiring beginning and advanced learning design and instructional technology skills, with a focus on quality and leadership in the field.

Competencies cover everything from the basics of learning management systems to universal design for learning (UDL), backward design, and project management. LX Pathways offers both self-paced and direct-feedback coaching options. Also, participants can earn stackable credentials and certificates.

LX Pathways offers three programs that you can follow. Those are Instructional Technologist, Learning Architect, or Online instructor. Click on the program below to learn more about each of them.
