"This course taught me so much about the instructional design process through the lens of project management. I'm in my first ID job and started about a month before this course began. I found that this course helped me ask questions and analyze my on-the-job projects."
~ Jeni Johnson, Des Moines, Iowa
"I learned so much about working with people and designing truly impactful instruction. This course has changed my career. I started my own instructional design and human resource organization, and I use the concepts you taught about good project management every day."
~ Meica Hatters, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
"Thank you for an amazing course! I really appreciate how it not only taught us all about project management but also modeled impeccable instructional design, so that we could see all that we've been learning about throughout this program in action."
~ Nicole Friz, Vista, California
"I have been so happy with the ID education I received from Stout as I can see I was prepared for this job. Going through the entire process in a case study during the Project Management course gave me so much insight into what we are doing in my current position. Thank you so much for helping me prepare for this! Working at Google is awesome! "
~ Kathleen Bagmanov, San Francisco, California
"I am glad a course in project management was included in the ID certificate program. I did not imagine it was THAT important! I learned so much in a field that I barely knew existed. And if I get this job I interviewed for today, it will be because of your course!"
~ Patricia David, Zephyrhills, Florida
"Yesterday was my first day in my new career as an Instructional Designer, and the first thing we did was review the four project charters for the projects I'd be working on or exposed to. You can't imagine how great it felt to look at four very complicated documents and understand them at the outset due to the training I received in this course."
~ Erin Sumpter, Cypress, Texas
"To someone unfamiliar with project charters, project plans, mind mapping, and facilitator guides, each week created an opportunity to learn something new. I learned the importance of each step and how it impacts the success of the project."
~ Monica Kar, St. Charles, Missouri
"The interview was tough (5 manager panel), but the ID certificate program had me fully prepared for any question they threw my way. When asked "Is there anything we didn't cover that you hoped to share about yourself?" I paused then said ‘Yes, I was hoping you would allow me to share my PM experiences with you.’ Then I proceeded to pull examples of the work created in this class. The range of documents created for the course gave me an extra advantage.”
~ Ray Meyer, Newport News, Virginia
"Our group used some wonderful collaboration tools allowing us to work on our projects simultaneously through Google docs and to see each other while we worked together. We used Team Gantt which integrated with our project, and Google communities allowed us the ability to be able to share information privately among our closed group."
~Robin Kellogg, Lakeville, Minnesota
"The instructor provided excellent guidance, instruction, and feedback and spelled everything out with instructions that were easy to follow. The live online class meetings were crucial and archived for students who were unable to attend online. The instructor challenged the class with discussion questions and provided timely and relevant feedback. "
~ Larry Murphy, Training Specialist, Virginia
