Formed in 2002 in the wake of the dotcom crash, the Ministry of Instructional Design (MID) was created to pick up the pieces and find out what went wrong. Their continuing mission is threefold:
1. To find ‘that which was lost’
2. To attract fresh talent to the elearning industry
3. To fill the skills and knowledge vacuum left as the baby boomer generation retires
Now, in response to the ongoing global economic downturn, they are opening their doors for the first time to bring you the Rapid eLearning Development (ReD) course.
"Part 3D computer game, part social network, part collaborative learning, the ReD course will teach you how to build effective elearning and informal media using leading elearning author tools. Designed by Rob Hubbard of LearningAge Solutions with input from some of the smartest people in the elearning industry including Clive Shepherd, Jane Hart and Patrick Dunn, this is a course unlike any other, designed to show how great elearning can be and built using tools that you too can master."
The Ministry of ID is looking for 20 ‘trailblazers’ to be the first through the course. If you are selected you will get free access to the ReD course and work on it in the same way as a paying student.
