One of the first services Five Square Learning offers is excellent instructional design. What exactly is instructional design you may ask? According to wikipedia is it “the practice of systematically designing, developing, and delivering instructional materials and experiences, both digital and physical, in a consistent and reliable fashion toward an efficient, effective, appealing, engaging, and inspiring acquisition of knowledge.” Phew, that’s lengthy. So, basically, it means creating and designing the best possible way for your instructional content, whatever that may be for your particular needs, to be received by those who need to learn in. 

Let’s face it, we have all been to classes in which we walked away shaking our heads, wondering just exactly what it was we were supposed to glean from them. Instructional design aims to help you walk away knowing exactly what you learned and how to apply it.

Their job is to take your content and decipher the “nice to knows” versus the “need to knows.” They will take your content and hone in on the most important aspects of it to create a course that makes learning that content accessible.

That is why Five Square Learning follows the real life rapid design principles of some of the largest and leanest companies in the world.
