Learning Design vs Learning Experience Design (are LDs out of a job?)’

The Death of E-learning – A Learning Pool Podcast

An irreverent look at what’s going on in the world of online learning. We cut through the bluster to get to the heart of what online learning should be – and what it shouldn’t.

There’ll be interviews, panel discussions, and much more, along with the recurring segment ‘The Death of E-learning’ where we ask our guests which element of L&D they’d throw out if they had the chance.

Released monthly, available from all good podcast providers. 



Episode 1: ‘Learning Design vs Learning Experience Design (are LDs out of a job?)’

In Ep01, Luke and Stefan talk to online learning strongman Colin Welch about the end of Learning Design. Will the profession survive? They chat about how e-learning is evolving (especially because of covid) and how data analytics can help training departments improve what they do. In the end, Colin gets to choose which bit of L&D he’d consign to the past if he had the chance.
