Interactive Program Design


Develop the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to create highly engaging and effective interactive educational programs.

Schools and Organizations have had to rush out online learning and training. They have discovered that the traditional online model does not provide the depth of learning required or an engaging learning environment.
Online learning does not have to be a boring, unsatisfying experience!
What's missing is relationships, learning teams, and interactive projects. Interactive Program Design teaches the fundamentals or group-based online learning. This is an adult learning model incorporating traditional curriculum development design, but emphasizing relationship development, discussions, group formation, and group-based interactive strategies.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the foundations of our interactive program strategies.
  • Learn to use delivery tools like Canvas LMS and zoom video conferencing.
  • Develop strategies for developing and supporting discussions and small groups.
  • Explore, select, and design experiential learning approaches including role-plays, case studies, problem-based learning, gamification, and fictionalization.
  • Develop a detailed plan for the build-out of your program.

Target Audience

  • Organizations with a civic/social mission who wish to use educational programs to develop membership, expand their reach, and further their mission.
  • Educators who wish to increase student engagement and retention through the use of interactive and group strategies.
  • Solopreneurs: Individual subject matter experts, coaches/counselors, authors, and speakers who wish to develop an education income stream, build thought leadership, and improve their influencer status.


The design program runs monthly, with video meetings on Mondays at 3:30 PST.

Upon completion of the design blueprint, designers participate in the Instructional Artists community for 30 days while building out the program.

Instructional design experience is not necessary. This program is designed as a group-supported program but can be completed at your own pace with direct mentor support.
