“As my online coursework at Illinois progressed, so did my responsibilities at work. I felt more confident and comfortable taking on complex tasks concerning the application of systematic processes used to improve workplace performance and individual learning. Now, I am equipped with all the current knowledge and tools needed to create impactful learning experiences for my organization, department, and individuals. I am happy to report that I have received a promotion and am now working as a senior instructional designer with managerial responsibilities. This would not have been possible without the online educational experience I had at Illinois.”
