Are you feeling lost in your journey to becoming an instructional designer?

 

Are you attempting to create eLearning courses but struggling to navigate the process?


There are so many skills you need to master, and so many areas you need to become proficient in. It can be difficult to know where to start, and how to progress.

 

Do you lack confidence in your skills, and feel like you are not progressing as quickly as you would like?


This can be frustrating and demotivating, and it can make it feel like your dream of becoming an instructional designer is slipping away.

 

Do you struggle to find time to focus on everything and often feel like you are falling behind?


Between work, family commitments, and other responsibilities, it can be challenging to find the time you need to develop your skills and advance your career. As a result, you might often feel like you're falling behind, which can add to your stress and anxiety.


If any of these problems sound familiar, you're not alone. Many aspiring instructional designers struggle with these same challenges.


THAT'S WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BUILD THIS PLACE...

I'M CRYSTAL.

Hi, I'm Crystal Harper-Osterbuhr - leader of eLearning & Instructional Designer for Beginners and I’ve spent years guiding the growth of thousands of people through a successful career in instructional design.

With 10+ years in the education space and instructional design industry, and over three years specializing exclusively in new and aspiring instructional designers succeed, I've been the driving force behind a multitude of successful instructional design careers and businesses in a diverse range of industries - From teachers transitioning to corporate instructional design to experienced instructional designers looking for upskilling and networking opportunities - I have a proven track record of helping amazing people achieve fantastic results.

In 2019, I decided to take all of my knowledge and experience and create eLearning & Instructional Design for Beginners so that I could help new and aspiring instructional designers achieve success with their careers and business. The community quickly became my full-time business, which led me to start eLearning & Instructional Design for Beginners' Community.

I’ve now helped hundreds of people start and build their instructional design careers. And I genuinely love spending my days supporting my members!

"Crystal has created an easy-to-follow method that, in my opinion, should be adopted more. I've been a member since the beginning and have found this to be a great learning experience, being able to keep my skills current and up-to-date easily, as well as conveniently.

It is not only informative but adaptable to most situations and organizations. As soon as you join, you will feel right at home. I feel this is one of the best investments I've made. Thank you, Crystal, for founding a place where we can all conveniently grow our skills and develop our eLearning skills together."

NOT SURE IF ELEARNING & ID FOR BEGINNERS IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

The eLearning & Instructional Design for Beginners Community is NOT for everyone, and truth be told we’d prefer to help you figure out if it’s not right for you BEFORE you join rather than waste your time. So, let’s cut to the chase...

WHO THE COMMUNITY IS FOR

  • New and aspiring instructional designers who want to attract clients and projects they want, and make the money they deserve for their work.
     
  • Existing instructional designers who want to improve their growth, project management and take their business to the next level.
     
  • People who haven't built a portfolio yet, but who are looking for the increased freedom and income an instructional design career can provide - and are willing to put the time and energy into making their instructional design dreams a reality.
     
  • Action takers who aren't just going to watch some training videos and never implement. I provide the training and resources, but you still need to do the work!
     
  • Instructional designers who have existing clients and want to better leverage their time and knowledge, while helping mission-driven businesses achieve their goals.

WHO THE COMMUNITY IS NOT FOR

  • People looking for a get rich quick solution - if you think a membership site is going to make you rich overnight, we’re not the right choice for you!
     
  • Idea chasers - if you're constantly chasing the next idea and never getting anything off the ground, this isn't a fit for you. An instructional design career takes commitment and focus.
     
  • Anyone looking for a quick fix or unwilling to dedicate time to an instructional design business. Successful instructional design careers take time and effort to create and manage.
     
  • Someone who is looking for a done for you tech solution. This is not a consultancy firm, I'm not software, and I don't build your portfolio projects and website for you!
     
  • People expecting guaranteed results - I know what I teach works (because I'm doing it myself), but I can't guarantee specific results following my advice. I hate to break it to you, but no one can make you that promise!

It might seem strange, me trying to talk you OUT of becoming a member - but truly if the Community is not the right fit then neither of us benefits. I have a vested interest in your success (you won’t stick around long if I'm not helping, right?) - and that all starts by making sure the Community is right for you before you join.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE COMMUNITY

Well of course I think the Community is awesome - it would be concerning if I didn’t! But don’t just take my word for it, check out these screenshots of nice things people are saying...

If there's anything at all that you're¬†unsure about, anything I haven't made clear, any concerns or questions, then please contact us at [email protected]¬†and we'll help you out.
