Discover how instructional design for eLearning can transform your business

If you’re experiencing a significant growth period or simply looking to upskill your team to improve performance and efficiencies within the business, eLearning instructional design is essential.

Successful instructional design creates instinctive and memorable ways for participants to acquire new knowledge and skills, breaking down major learning pieces into engaging units with clear objectives for team members to complete and be assessed on.

What instructional design for eLearning can do 

Instructional design uses powerful visual and digital communication tools to better transmit information. In complex business structures of industries where process-driven work is at the core of your business model, it’s an indispensable tool.

Here are just some of the things instructional design can do:


Help you prioritise the learning outcomes and needs your training should meet.


Select appropriate techniques to meet learning outcomes, from digital storytelling to face-to-face scenarios. 


Present content on any subject matter in a clear concise way, with contextualised detail.


Empower learners to retain information and synthesise concepts independently. 

We do this by

Simplifying the complex

Be it raw content, a mesh of content or no content at all, throw whatever you have at us and we will research the topic, glean the important information and formulate that into a script that tells your story.

Building engagement

With script in hand, next comes the focus on engagement. This is where user experience comes into play and interaction and functionality hits the spotlight in the design process.

Learner-centred design

By engaging learners in content that feels meaningful and worthwhile, something that gives their needs, interests and skills the attention it deserves, they learn more and commit to doing more.

Learner-centred design

Learners sit at the very heart of modern instructional design principles. It is every learning designers role to deliver eLearning content that learners want to engage in.

A learning experience that stimulates someone’s mind, provides active learning opportunities and focuses on the learner, is an experience they will remember.  

Here’s what instructional design doesn’t do:

  • Present large blocks of information without context. 
  • Encourage passive presentation of subject matter. Rather, it invites learners to engage with content. 
  • Dictate one mode or speed of learning — it can be modified to suit all styles of learners and different timelines. 


Instructional design aims to simplify complex tasks, condense knowledge and steep learning curves through powerful visual and digital communication.

By breaking down complex instructions and process flows into simple, digestible topics, instructional design for eLearning allows any learner to gain a better comprehension of content and track progress with clearly defined assessments and learning outcomes.

At Simply eLearning, we’re ready to help you transform whatever content you have — from the most complex and detailed to the bare bones — into powerful storytelling and engaging learning units. Our team will work directly with you to understand your business and the unique requirements you’ll have for given learning outcomes.
