Design thinking is a systematic, iterative, and creative process for solving problems by analyzing, synthesizing and evaluating information to generate ideas and solutions. Instructional Design (ID) applies the principles of design thinking to solve everyday learning problems and create effective, engaging learning experiences. This is done by analyzing learning and business needs, the learning environment and learner audience, then synthesizing design plans and developing instructional packages, and finally evaluating results and the achievement of learning objectives. Instructional Design is both an art and a science, balancing creativity and structure in a systemic and systematic approach to designing instructional programs.

As an Instructional Designer, I have worked with various content authoring tools and learning technologies such as Articulate Rise/ Storyline, Brightspace/ D2L, H5P, Camtasia and Adobe Creaticve Cloud, to design and develop E-learning courses. Articulate Rise is my preferred web-based authoring tool as it allows for easy, rapid development of courses, which makes it it suitable for the creation of information-heavy E-learning products. Articulate Storyline offers a more creative, free-form environment, where you need to make design decisions, and is better for simulations, interactions and story-driven, scenario-based E-learning.

Below are two sample courses in Rise, one course in Storyline and one in Adobe Premier.
