What Our Learners are Saying

Real World Scenarios & Guidance

Kevin C., Instructional Designer & eLearning Developer

Needs Analysis 101 provides needed skills to understand how to connect with SME with real world scenarios while also providing guidance and materials you can use immediately. I highly recommend it to anyone planning on entering instructional design.

Engaging, Informative and Timely

by Yolanda F., Director of Training & Development

I randomly met Nicole through LinkedIn. She commented on a post that I shared about being familiar with using Adobe Connect and Cisco WebEx to host virtual training. I let her know that at my new organization, they would like to use Zoom and Zoom Webinar. This required that I quickly upskill! It needed to happen with a day because the following day, I was helping to design and carry out a webinar. Ironically, Nicole was hosting a virtual workshop on using Zoom for virtual training that very day! Her session was perfect in every way – engaging, informative and timely. I highly recommend her training workshop.

Completed "Storied" in 90 Minutes

Chaitra Dixit, Learning & Development Content Specialist

Who doesn't like to wake up to a story? Though I am not a morning person but still the excitement in me made it possible to get ready for the workshop at 3:30 AM today. Well, it was an amazing workshop on "Story-telling in E-learning" hosted by Nicole Papaioannou Lugara.Thank you for a thought provoking and an immersive learning workshop Nicole. I was completely "Storied" in about 90 mins session.

Great Resources

Luke G., Instructional Designer

What a fantastic course! Nicole does an amazing job of distilling the necessary information and presenting it into an engaging course. Great resources and materials and exercises I will come back to.
