Do you hear a lot about learning experience design (LXD) but aren’t sure what it is? In this episode, we discuss the evolution of instructional design to learning experience design. We talk about what it means to us, how we can explain it to others and how we can support people on their learning journey. I’m replaying an episode of the Powered by Learning podcast that I was on from d’Vinci Interactive. I thought it was timely, since I’m currently writing a series of articles on learning experience design
- Meaning of learning experience design (LXD)
- Qualities of an effective learning experience
- User experience techniques that can improve outcomes
- Transitioning into learning experience design
- Learning from the audience when you don’t have access to them
- Empathy maps complement personas
- Helping clients understand that learning is a journey
- How we need to evolve as learning professionals

There seems to be a growing body of research that well-done VR can boost learning. See The eLearning Guild’s research report. If you’re not a member, you can join for free.

I really enjoyed this podcast. As a teacher who loves implementing learner-centered principles, I was able to understand how LxD takes instructional design to the next level. As a teacher I’ve come to learn that placing the learner/human at the center of the learning makes all the difference. If the learner does not feel like they are priototzed in the learning process they will disengage. Thats why I love what Connie said about not having one eight hour training, and rather eight one hour trainings, and Jenica recommending microlearning bits and a podcast. That is putting the learner at the center. Who has eight hours to an e-learning course ?!
This was such a great podcast, I learned a lot. Highly recommended.
I also love when Connie said, “learning experience design is more like the umbrella that encompasses user experience, learning experience, cognitive psychology, visual design, instructional design.” I totally agree, and I think that’s one of the best ways to put it.
I’d love to hear what Connie thinks about how virtual reality experiences add to LxD, and how to practically implement VR into corporate training.
