Leading collaborative online learning provider will award SHRM recertification credits for first time in the five years since its launch
San Francisco (February 10, 2021) –– NovoEd, which provides the industry’s leading collaborative online learning platform for the enterprise, today announced its 20th run of its Foundations of Learning Design (LXD) course. The five-week facilitated online collaborative learning program has been revamped to provide further value to learning and development professionals, instructional designers and HR executives through new course enhancements and the addition of SHRM recertification credits.
As HR and L&D professionals seek innovative ways to engage employees through learning, NovoEd’s LXD program allows business, HR and learning professionals to join a community of their peers in developing learning experiences that result in behavior change and produce meaningful business impact. In this newest LXD course, learners will experience recently improved learning squads, where they can learn from their peers based on existing or user-made groups, as well as experienced learning coaches who can provide expertise and assistance.
“After five years of proven success with our flagship LXD course, we’re excited to bring a rejuvenated, SHRM-certified experience to HR and L&D leaders,” said Drew Remiker, Director of Learning Experience Design at NovoEd. “At NovoEd, we’re empowering business leaders with the tools they need to create impactful learning programs within their own workforces. This course supports the online learning community by building connections between participants, experts, course alumni and participants, ensuring they are deeply ingrained in the entire learning process.”
Since its inception in 2016, NovoEd’s LXD course has helped close to 15,000 learners across six continents create engaging digital learning experiences for their own organizations through digital pedagogy and instructional design best practices. Alumni of the program hail from global Fortune 1000 companies, including CEMEX, GE, Kraft Heinz, Perkin Elmer and Nestlé.
“What’s unique about our LXD course is how the entire learning community can tap into not only NovoEd’s learning design expertise, but also the participants’ own diverse work experiences. This arms participants with the best tools and methods to produce meaningful, engaging digital learning programs,” said Todd Moran, Chief Learning Strategist at NovoEd. “We’re looking forward to equipping professionals with the tools to create rich learning experiences that drive demonstrable business impact for their organizations in both an immediate and lasting manner.”
This next round of the five-week course begins on Feb. 22, 2021 and is free of charge to all participants. LXD has been approved for 11 PDCs towards SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification and will provide learners with comprehensive training, assignments and peer-to-peer learning throughout the duration of the program.
