Views of the Participants who have taken the IDCD and IDST Courses

 

"IDCD was never a course for me. It was a way towards my transformation. I was a banker serving my notice period when I joined IDCD. I had been in the Banking & Financial Services Industry for past 11 years with nothing to do in Instructional Design (ID) per se. I joined this course as I wanted to become a teacher in finance and while pursuing this course, I realized I had everything to do with the ID principles taught in this course.

I promise all those who join this course are sure to get the following three things:
1. A realistic opportunity of becoming great in your domain.
2. A gala learning experience.
3. A never before kind of a mentor and a real true friend in Shafali.

I feel lucky to have completed this course. Thank you God, Thank you Shafali."

"I have been in the training domain for last 11 years. Was looking to enhance my skills and learn more around the same. This thought helped me to look for courses in ID. Found Shafali, and went for the 1st free workshop. Was stunned to learn the depth around learning and its methodologies.

Shafali is a mentor in true sense. The program is designed in a manner that it will be easier to understand the theories and models around training and ID. The “Litmus tip” provided is amazing. The flow of training is great. The way the activities have been designed, you are taken through a rigorous work and the feedback process is amazing.

I recommend this training for all levels of professionals in training domain. Your insight towards planning or conducting training will change. The change is for good. Believe me, its amazing and I recommend this to all."

"I had heard about Shafali's IDCD course a few years back and ever since, had been waiting for the opportunity to be able to join this course. Finally, when I joined this course, I could immediately see why the IDCD course is so highly reputed. This course isn't only a learning experience - it is a transformational experience. Under Shafali's deft guidance, of course you will learn how to create great courses; but you'll also relearn what it is to truly learn new things and explore them, and also what it is like to have a great educator and mentor.

Thank you for all this, and so much more, Shafali! I can't wait for another opportunity to learn from you again!"

"It was a beautiful and systematic journey into the enchanting world of instructional design. All I would like to say is, once on-board “Creative Agni Airways”, fasten your seat-belt, and wholeheartedly entrust your zeal for knowledge and aspirations to carve a niche for yourself in this demanding yet expanding space, in the able hands of the pilot - Shafali, who will ensure that you reach your destination, by empowering you with her years of laudable experience and expertise.

For those who wish to embark on this journey, the only baggage allowed is a suitcase of curiosity and a rucksack of enthusiasm.

It doesn’t matter, if your thoughts on the subject are still formative and fluid, what’s exciting about the IDCD programme is, the availability of a great platform, to crystallize them, to create immersive and engaging learning experiences for learners.

Once again thank you Shafali!"

"As a participant in the Instructional Design and Content Development (IDCD) Certificate course, my overall experience has been overwhelmingly positive to say the least. Shafali conducted the classes in a very comprehensive manner. What I particularly liked about the classes was the fact that Shafali first made us familiar with the various theories and models of Instructional Design and thereafter, she ensured that we implement those concepts in practical Instructional Design assignments. The result was the marriage of theory and application which undoubtedly enriched my learning of the subject. Furthermore, the online discussion forum where we participated regularly helped all of us to hone our skills in the fundamentals of Instructional Design.

I would recommend the IDCD course to anyone who would like to gain expertise in Instructional Design. I have no doubt that this course will throw new insights and help a new learner gain a firm foothold in the field of Instructional Design."

"I love training and was looking for course/s that would help me add more skills to my current role and excel in Learning & Development industry. This is when the thought of Instructional Design struck my mind. I researched online for relevant courses and came across IDCD course via Creative Agni. I went through the course details and thoroughly read Shafali's succinct introduction on the website, which was very impressive that I could not stop myself from attending the Freebie (free workshop). She is called “a whole-brain thinker' which is absolutely true as after attending the workshop I felt so motivated about enrolling myself in the course and I did :).

I must say it's an excellent course which is extensive and covers all necessary aspects of Instructional Design which will help you design great courses in future, though more than that, an individual grows throughout the course. These 8 weeks have been so rich in learning that I could have never imagined of being possible anywhere. The way the course has been designed, which includes Classroom sessions, Weekly Concept Assignments and the most important contributor - 'the discussion forum', it ensures that you learn with every step you take. One becomes aware of his/her strengths & weaknesses. The classroom sessions keep you all pepped-up & attentive.

Most importantly, Shafali - someone whom I admire for the way she explains everything, for her Creativity - which is Remarkable and her Knowledge - which is Commendable. I respect her for the expertise she has and not to forget her love for Instruction Design.

I can go on & on about the qualities of this course, for its effectiveness & concepts covered and Shafali for being a tremendous facilitator, mentor and an inspiration. Altogether, this course has been one of the best learning experiences and it will stay with me throughout my life. It gave me the confidence to pursue my career in Instructional Design. I feel privileged to have attended this course as it gives you the push that you need in your life, to go the extra mile.

I certainly recommend this course to those who have a passion to learn, grow and succeed in this fraternity."

"I was looking for a program in Instructional Design (ID) which combines both theory and practice and therefore decided to enrol for the IDST Certificate Course with Creative Agni.

What impressed me the most about the course was the use of different ID principles in teaching it. Along with the classroom sessions, there were assignments, quizzes as well as a very interactive online discussion forum, which made the learning experience both enjoyable and effective.

I am confident of applying many of these ID concepts both in my role as a teacher and as a learning and development consultant."

"The course is very well structured and begins with the principles, theories, and frameworks of Instructional Design which is then followed by applying them in the Classroom and Home Assignments. Every assignment relates to the organization with which we work, which helps make it logically and practically applicable. The discussion forum is one of the most interesting aspects of the course as it ensures learning through the week followed by real life scenarios where the concepts learnt needed to be applied and discussed. The evaluation was well timed within the course followed by the final presentation and online test which was an icing on the cake.

Today I feel confident of applying my knowledge. Last but not the least I would like to make a special mention of Shafali who will go out of the way to ensure success in each learner’s learning thereby making it effective and her advices are something to vouch for. Thank you for such an amazing learning experience Shafali!!!"

"IDST is a well designed course that touches the right level for senior professionals. Every aspect of the course - the structure, the concept clarity, the examples, and the assignments - is really impressive. The discussion forum provided a great platform to interact with other participants. The course design followed exactly what it taught. The Examples and the activities were relevant and related to real life/work scenarios. Feedback was constructive and really motivating. Though, with my busy schedule it was quite challenging to meet the timelines of the assignments, it was not stress-generating. I enjoyed every moment I spent with the course and I regret that it came to an end.

I have started analysing my work assignments with the concepts learnt and have also started recommending the IDST course to my friends."

"The IDCD course was a great learning experience. I was exploring a new career option after a 10 years experience as a marketing coordinator and ID was one of the options that I was looking at. After discussing with Shafali I decided to take up the course as I did not have any elearning background. The 8 weeks programme removed my doubts and confusions about my choice of taking up the IDCD course. I did not just learn the various learning theories but was also able to map them to my personal experiences. The excellent course content and continuous motivation by Shafali has made even somebody like me, who is completely new to the elearning industry, confident of being able to pursue a career in instructional design."
