Show Notes:

eLearning Coach Connie Malamed helped coin the phrase “Learning Experience Design” yet many in the industry struggle with explaining the difference between LXD and ID (Instructional Design). In this podcast, Connie makes the following statements about LXD:

  • Learning Experience Design is human-centered with the focus always on the learner.
  • Learning experience design takes all of the research, UI/UX, and all of the best things that Instructional Designers have learned over the years and creates a new mindset and new experience for learning.
  • Learning can be a true experience and not just a one-time event. Instructional Designers work to create a learning journey to get the best results for the learner.
