"The IDCD Online Course was a beautiful journey for me, a course which I can never forget. While pursuing the IDCD Online, I had health issues and I also lost my job because of Covid, but irrespective of challenges, Shafali as a mentor was always there to guide and support. It would had been extremely difficult for me to complete the course without her guidance.

Once you join the course, Shafali will ensure that you reach your destination. All you need to do is - just keep the level of your curiosity high and you will be successful.

Thank you Shafali for everything."

"Whatever certificates I’ve got in my entire life, the IDCD Online certificate is the most valuable for me.

In the last two years, I have gone through many Instructional design courses. I have so many certificates, but they all are just certificates. Those courses did not impart the ID skills I wanted. I never felt confident working as an instructional designer after going through those courses. But after attending the IDCD Online Course, I can say this with 100% surety that I am now confident of working as an instructional designer. In fact, anyone can become an effective instructional designer after attending this course.

And it was not just the course - In Shafali I found a mentor and a great human being as my coach and facilitator. I am thankful that I got this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from her."

"The IDCD Online Course is made for those who want to embark on this really special learning journey with Shafali. She has been an absolutely fantastic guide all along. I loved her methodology as it inculcated thinking and then looking for answers within rather than the usual searching the web. Assignments made us learn, practice and delve into the concepts each day solidifying our base. She gave us extensive feedback each time and put in a lot of effort.

I would definitely recommend this course as there is practical application of the knowledge similar to the real world scenario. Thus one comes out as a confident Instructional Designer ready to work on real projects.

I would like to sincerely thank Shafali for being 100% invested in us throughout the course duration to ensure that we are able to grasp the knowledge and apply it correctly."

"The IDST program was a great learning experience for me. These 8 weeks of learning instructional design principles and putting them each one into practice was quite challenging and exciting at the same time. I appreciate the diligence that has gone into designing of this program. All the aspect of this program seems to be meticulously designed and well thought of. I believe that it has everything that an instructional design program for senior professionals must have. Right from the weekly assignments, to discussion forums, to quizzes, impromptu questions, to online test, everything was designed and delivered with perfection.

It has instilled the much need confidence in me for applying the Instructional Design principles in my role as an eLearning Project Manager. I am feeling empowered with all this knowledge and direction.!"

"Before I began, I was unprepared to start a two and a half month’s course, which I knew was going to crave for my abiding attention and commitment. But then I made up my mind to take this course. Now I strongly believe that no aspiring Instructional designer should miss the life-time opportunity to pursue the IDCD course from Creative Agni.

The program design is unique in its own way! It is a complete blend of conventional and non-conventional methods that are executed beautifully by mentor Shafali in her unique way, of course! Every feedback - be it appreciation or criticism, matters a lot as is given in a constructive manner and works wonders for you as the course proceeds. Her timely instructions and reminders about the upcoming assignments, workload, and challenges help you to be aware and prepared.

Thank you Shafali, for your advice and timely suggestions. They have helped me remain focussed and come through the toughest of times. Your suggestions about how to handle the workspace issues and foresightedness have helped me analyze my decisions. You walk ahead of time to predict the cause and effect of the situations. Thanks to Creative Agni, and to Shafali for being such an amazing mentor."

"I heard about Creative Agni’s IDCD course long back from one of my colleagues and she had strongly recommended this course if one seriously wanted to pursue a career in Instructional Design.

At the very onset of the course, I realized that this is one of the best decisions I have made on the professional front. Shafali's way of making people learn is of another league. The detailing of every concept is filled with so many personal and professional examples that it's difficult not to understand it. Then, there are discussion forum posts and weekly assignments afterwards that make your understanding clearer and stronger. Assignments were challenging and they were designed to bring best out of you. And such was the experience that I really miss those assignments and discussions now. Overall the journey of this course was nothing less than a realization for me.

So if you are thinking of a career in ID, Creative Agni is the right way. "

"I came to know about Creative Agni on Internet a few months back and then I got this golden chance to join the course. I was looking for a classroom-based ID course. Being a trainer, initially I was interested in the IDST course. However, based on my experience & qualifications, I was suggested the IDCD course.

The IDCD course is well structured and it was lot of fun along with learning. There were online discussions, concept assignments, quizzes and project assignments, which made the learning experience effective. I really liked the way Shafali conducted this course. Her invaluable advice during the course has really helped me in performing well. Thank you so much Shafali for your support, encouragement and a great learning experience.

"The IDST course is one of the most comprehensive courses in Instructional Design and Training that I have ever come across.

I had certain expectations when I took the course, but I was totally amazed by the detailed design and delivery of this course.

The delivery of this course, which is the icing on the cake, is all due to the efforts of who I like to call as the wizard of this trade, Shafali Anand. Each exercise and activity is so immaculately designed and delivered that it speaks volume of the experience and in-depth knowledge of the creator of this course, Shafali. She mentors each and every course participant and guides them in a way that their doubts are cleared for life. There is never a lull moment and in fact, one taking the course is always on their best foot forward. A big Thank You to Shafali for making this unique course so engaging and thorough that I wished it had continued for few more weeks."

"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."

Eklavya Sinha - IDST Course

"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!!!"

A big thanks to Shafali for making this course so interesting and easy to understand. If it would not have been for her I couldn't have taken my quest of ID further. You taught all those ID theories and models so well that I will not forget them ever.

My experience of instructional design, throughout the course, has been quite enriching."

What I liked most about the course that there were online discussion, concept assignments, quizzes and project assignments which made the learning experience effective.

"This has been another great learning experience for me at Creative Agni. I had attended the IDCD Course 2 years ago.

I was eagerly waiting on taking up another course here and REDAC was it. After becoming an ID, I was often asked if I had worked on any authoring tools and I hadn't. Thus the need to attend a course to learn an authoring tool, brought me to REDAC course.

REDAC is so well thought of, properly structured, and a great blend of logical & practical learning. From classroom learning to hand assignments, file assignments, project work and quizzes - one logically progresses in the course and gains the knowledge.

Ranjeet's deep pool of knowledge has allowed me to learn so much during the course, that I feel confident in completing an elearning course on my own, from storyboarding it to developing it and giving it it's final shape. The efforts Ranjeet puts in so that the learner understands everything clearly, are commendable. His focus to help us learn the "WHY" and "HOW" of everything in the software - made it easier for me to master Captivate. I could not imagine myself doing something technical like Adobe Captivate. Technology always went bouncers for me - but I am so happy I attended this course and I am confident of the knowledge that I now have.

The learning has been remarkable during these 8 weeks - not just limited to the software but also in understanding other technicalities and skills needed to excel in this domain.

Thanks Ranjeet for all your hardwork, efforts and commitment. Looking forward to more such courses in future."

"Before the IDCD course at Creative Agni, 'Instructional Design' sounded like a term used too often by the elites living in the utopian world. The pedagogy adopted for sharing knowledge at Creative Agni together with useful assignments and interesting online discussions definitely put the course in a league way different from the rest. Once you are through the course, you are ready to give the much needed thrust to your career.

So take the bull by its horns and get going!! "

"Dear Shafali, It is a pleasure to know you and learn Instructional Design from you. On a personal front, I have never been inspired by anyone so much till date, my experience through out this course was very enriching in terms of knowledge and understanding about the e-learning industry. Thank you for making Instructional Design so interesting, exciting and competitive all through out and motivating continuously to bring out the creative side of me as an Instructional Designer. "

Neetee Saharia - IDCD Course
L & D Specialist,
Gurgaon (Delhi NCR)

"We, a lot of times, have a goal in mind but charting a path to reach that goal is always a challenge. Shafali and her meticulously designed course have helped me create that path to become an Instructional Designer. If you are like me, you would have considered theories the part to sleep through in school.

During this course though, you will see how they manifest as you design a program. Trust this program to make your mind agile and thus creative, it will equip you with necessary tools to create a program that appeals and helps your audience. There are activities that polish the learner. All this, coupled with Shafali's guidance and how she makes the program fun for her students to keep them engaged and learn well. If they see it then it also serves as a model of what a classroom, instrumental in learning, should look like. It lets the learner feel empowered like this program has made us."

Ankita Chawla - IDCD Course
Student Engagement Executive,
One Step Up,

"After years, I have attended such an interesting course. I love working on Captivate. Initially when I started it seemed as if it weren't my cup of tea, however, Ranjeet made it so easy by explaining everything in detail.

He has in-depth technical knowledge and the best part of it is that he explains it really well. The assignments he gave followed by his detailed, constructive feedback worked wonders.

Ranjeet takes personal ownership and responsibility of the learning of his learners. He ensures that the course participants are given enough opportunities to practice each new skill.

I was able to apply all that I learned only because Ranjeet uses a lot of instructional design in the course.

I am looking forward to learning again from Ranjeet, and will wait for his next course.

Thank you Ranjeet, for all your efforts.

"After attending Shafali’s classes for the IDCD course, I realized that learning need not be just skin-deep.

The design of the IDCD course is a master piece of art, not only are we learning about various theories, models and frameworks during the event of the course, rather we are participants in a similar kind of framework while undertaking the course. Initially, I wasn’t sure of starting my career as an Instructional designer, however today, after the completion of the course, I am proud of having made this choice, thanks to the confidence instilled by my mentor Shafali and her intricately designed course.

The course was no short of a roller-coaster ride and I thoroughly enjoyed every turn it took. I was fascinated of how beautifully this course took me through Instructional design and content development that it is now almost "running in my blood." Thank you Shafali for supporting me through this course, I will certainly look forward to attending another one in the near future! "

Kirandeep Singh - IDCD Course
Instuctional Designer,

" I was looking for a course in Instructional Design that would impart in-depth clarity on the application of the Instructional Design theory, principles and not just theoretical knowledge. One of my colleagues suggested 2 courses (IDCD course and IDST course) from Creative Agni. In my opinion the IDST course is more appropriate and relevant for a senior executive.

The course is well structured and provides an inspiring environment in which participants from diverse backgrounds contribute to discussions, offering different views and their rich experience. The interaction with Shafali and the other participants enriched my knowledge and exposure. It did not only refresh what I have learned from my past experience and other corporate training courses, it frequently inspired me with new perspectives.

I am looking forward to use the learning from the course and I am sure it will benefit me for the rest of my life – both personal and professional. "

The course has been designed such that each learning session is a milestone towards bringing the best out of the learner.

The IDCD course is systematically designed, as one starts learning from the basics and develops their cognitive skills from the very first day of the class. The examples, ideas, and stories told by Shafali were very interesting, which makes the learning process easier and immersive. This course helped me understand the various models and principles of instructional design.

Moreover, Shafali is a wonderful mentor and gives her 100% to each student in the class. Thank you, Shafali for giving me this opportunity and showing me the right path in terms of my career. "

Rohit Aneja - IDCD Course

"Shafali R.Anand is the gold tag for Instructional Design Courses. Before enrolling for this course, I was experiencing some performance-anxiety, as this was a totally new field for me. Yet, right from the very first day, I began experiencing deep creative learning. I am a creative person but before the course I couldn’t explore my creativity as such. The best part of the course was online discussions and posts about our learning but even that required creativity.

Through the course activities, Shafali molded us into a creative learner. I really liked the way the course was conducted. Shafali's invaluable advice during the course has helped me put my best in the area of writing and I now look forward to applying my ID learning in my profession as a content creator.

Thank you so much Shafali!"

IDCD was absolutely different from the past courses that I have been a part of. This course has helped me come out of my comfort zone and look at different options of developing the content effectively.

Shafali has been instrumental in bringing the training concepts to life and has made me apply concepts in day to day activities. The course has been structured in such a way that it is extremely engaging and keeps one on their toes. Storyboarding was one of the best part of this course. It allowed me to understand how an online course can be made in an engaging way. It allowed me to be creative.

Thank you Shafali for a wonderful learning experience."

"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."

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."

Henna Sethi - IDCD Course

"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 joined this course with high expectations and I am extremely happy that by the end of the course, my expectations were met exceedingly. The entire course was not only structured very well, but also executed brilliantly. Personally it was difficult for me to make out who is better, Shafali Ma’am as an ID or as an Instructor.

In order to pursue your career as an Instructional Designer (ID) or a Trainer, one of the main prerequisite is one should know, how to develop effective and purposeful course content. Creative Agni contributes exceptionally well in building and honing your skills for the same. It has also helped me to give a concrete direction to my creativity and passion, to impart learning and further my career in this industry.

"The IDCD course helped me understand the ID principles and models, which I can relate to my projects and apply effectively in designing and developing courses. In addition to teaching us about the ID strategies, Shafali Ma'am encouraged me to write and present the content in my own way, which helped in building my confidence. I got to learn more than I expected. The course motivates us to enjoy learning and this is what Instructional Design is all about. Heartful thanks to her :-)"

"After working for more than 5 years in BPO and ePublishing industries, I wanted to switch my career to elearning. I was looking for reputed institutes in the country to get trained in Instructional Design. After much research I found Creative Agni in Noida. I did not hesitate to travel to Noida to take the Instructional Design and Content Development (IDCD) course. I am really glad that I underwent this training. Shafali's vast experience and her effective training methods as well as the concept and project assignments were the highlight of the program. This training program will be very beneficial for all who want to excel in the elearning industry."

"I had heard about the IDCD course from one of my colleagues. Since then I was interested in joining the course, and fortunately I got the chance to join it. After completing the course, I find it even more useful than what I had expected it to be. The course gave me a new vision and a new perspective towards designing and developing courses. I have learnt of many new things, which are really important in content writing and course design. The classroom interactions, assignments, quizzes, and discussions helped me hone my writing skills and creativity. It was really fabulous - a rich learning experience. I have learnt not only instructional design, but also a lot of other things on personal level during the course.

The course was very engaging, interactive and informative from all perspectives. I had not imagined that a course could be so interesting. All the credit goes to the Instructor, Shafali Ma'am. She is a mentor in the real sense. She made things easy to understand by providing relevant examples and analogies. She has designed the IDCD course brilliantly. I feel proud to be a part of this course and heartily thank her for giving me a chance to take up this course.

This course is a wonderful platform for all the ID aspirants and I wish Creative Agni and Shafali Ma'am all the success. Please keep up the good work."

Gurgaon (Delhi NCR)

"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."

Anil Kumar - IDST Course
Senior SME,
Educomp Solutions Ltd.
Noida (Delhi - NCR)

"I had no idea a two-month course could be so rich a learning experience. However, I was in for a pleasant surprise - not only was it a rich learning experience, it opened so many doors all at once! Instructional design is much, too much in demand right now as the scope in the field of e-learning is limitless. IDCD happened to take two months of my full attention in order to deliver me ready and raring to go and explore the countless doors that have opened for me. The course is extremely well-designed. I have never seen a more dynamic and prepared teacher than Shafali Ma'm, to whom I would like to extend all the credit and gratefulness I feel after completing the course. Thank you for the powerful, interactive classes, the discussions at the discussion forum and all the fun assignments which ingrained instructional design in my mind."

"It was a great and unique learning experience for me to take and complete the IDST course.

Now, I can confidently apply the instructional design theories and models in the work assignments for my organization. Due to the relevant examples provided in the course, I was able to grasp the learning more easily. Additionally, the weekly discussions, the quizzes, the assignments, and the online test helped me strengthen my learning throughout the course. My dedication and commitment towards the learning sessions and the assignments finally paid off with my successful completion of the course, and will ensure the long-term retention of the knowledge gained through it."

Sachin Malhotra - IDST Course

"I feel that the IDCD course is great and it is one of the best learning experiences I ever had. I have enjoyed the course. Through this course I have learned about e-learning. The course has also motivated me to improve my writing skills. The IDCD course has given me a clear understanding of Instructional Design (imparting learning effectively).

The best thing about this course is that whatever I learned, I was asked to apply in the assignments and the project.

I’m thankful to Shafali for providing such an excellent course. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to become an Instructional Designer."

Ajay Kumar Jha - IDCD Course
Medical Writer,
Wolters Kluwer Health
Gurgaon (Delhi NCR)

"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."

In the world of today, if there’s anything that cries out the loudest for creativity, it is the act of transferring knowledge. Creativity has to work alongside logic to create instructionally effective content. It doesn’t matter where the content lies on the learning medium continuum – this is the reality of all types of content…from WBTs through Blended Learning to Instructor-led Classroom Trainings!


I. Creative Agni® Certificate Courses

Instructional Design forms the backbone of any learning experience - classroom trainings to online courses to blended learning - if you intend to transfer learning effectively, you must use instructional design. Possessing the knowledge of different instructional design theories and models isn't enough - in fact, unless you can connect them to form a framework for creating learning experiences, such knowledge is fairly useless.

This is why a Creative Agni course is built through clear and direct application of instructional design principles, and Creative Agni's own Instructional Design and Content Development courses make you confident of applying your knowledge and creating your own awesome programs. Our other courses and training programs too are designed to serve their instructional goals faithfully, so if you want to know what you'll gain from any of our courses, please read their instructional goals carefully, and if they match/propel your own goals, connect with us.

III. Fount - The Newsletter   ||   eZine (the Blog)   ||   Articles (on training, instructional design, eLearning)

In this rapidly changing world, where elearning content development is fast transforming into content mass-production; where teaching has changed into a faint sliver of what it used to be; and where trainings are being avoided, or worse still… force-fed to an uninterested audience – we are losing that creative spark, which could ignite the passion for knowledge in the minds of our learners. The pace at which we work, the pressure of the deadlines that we run to meet, and a general environment of apathy makes us disregard the creative element in Instructional Design. We need to apply creative thinking to the design and development of content.

Our endeavor is to go beyond the courses and training programs that we offer, and make Creative Agni a cerebral resort of sorts. A place where you'd like to stop over for a few minutes or a couple of hours and refresh your mind, because your mind too needs a break from the rut. It needs to recharge, and to help it do that - in creative and innovative ways, we have here for you three interesting getaways!
