Instructional design

Open Polytechnic has the largest instructional design team in New Zealand. We can develop content for a range of delivery methods including face-to-face, blended and online learning.

Our instructional design team can develop virtual classroom environments, create facilitator guides, workbooks and other learning collateral required to suit your learning approach. We can build engaging educational content to be hosted on your online learning platform or build directly into our learning management system, iQualify. We will use educational pedagogy to ensure the best results possible from your programme of study.

What we can design and build for you

We can create almost any type of training/learning material you want to deliver. This could include:

  • staff training modules
  • induction/competency programmes
  • micro-credentials 
  • custom training courses
  • multi-media assets
  • digitising existing print material
  • full qualifications.


Our instructional design process

We call our approach to developing learning solutions: 'Discover, Define, Develop and Deliver'. We adapted this from the ADDIE approach to instructional design. By following our tested design process, your educational content will have the best foundation possible to achieve successful outcomes for your staff or learners.
