Take a look at some of the outstanding work students of the IDOL courses Academy® have done in our program. Get inspired to develop your own portfolio!
Why Do IDOL courses Academy Member Portfolios Shine so Brightly✨?
Because the IDOL courses Academy is built on the principles of LXD (Learner Experience Design), social learning, and deliberate practice. Every asset in a student portfolio goes through each of these four steps.
It starts with learning about learner experience design and focusing on how to create meaningful training solutions. You then learn how to create learning materials using industry tools.
Learning is not complete without taking action. After you learn about instructional design you'll start creating. Once you've completed the crappy first draft of an asset (job aid, instructional script, video, storyboard, etc) you're ready for the next step of deliberate practice.
You share your draft with the IDOL courses Academy community. You get kind and supportive feedback from peers and mentors to help you improve that asset. Then you'll implement the feedback from the community of IDOLs and move on to the next step.
Academy Coach Feedback
Submit the peer-reviewed asset to the Academy Coaches to get expert tailored feedback. You can't improve on what you don't know. That's why feedback from elite instructional designers moves you and your skills further quickly. After you implement the coach feedback, upload the asset to your portfolio, and move on to the next asset with step one. This is a cyclical process in deliberate practice that improves both newbie and veteran IDOL skills!
