  • How do we support students as they work through the training?

    We want you to be successful and we’ll be there for you to answer questions and clarify things, as needed. You’re invited to comment, post your questions and get the help you need. If you are having a challenge you need help with, write on the Slack support community channel where you can ask questions, discuss exercises, activities or anything else related to the program. You will get direct support from us and other course participants. Lastly, there will be monthly live mentoring sessions so come prepared with questions!

  • I’m busy! How will this program save me time?

    We get it. Our goal is to provide you with actionable information that you can implement right away…not “fluff” that sends you in a million different directions. You’re saving time by joining the Ignite Learning Academy and getting an actual system and process to start creating truly effective eLearning courses, rather than taking shots in the dark and figuring things out on your own or investing in expensive training courses that just cover the theory but never actually show you the best practices for creating impactful eLearning that brings measurable results.

  • How is this program different from other online Digital Learning programs?

    You will get unlimited access to the training. You will also get lots of handouts and templates that you can immediately apply in your job. In addition, there is a slack board where we talk about the course, the exercises, the activities, and All Things Digital Learning! And, the best part is that Marina and Vanessa will be conducting monthly mentoring sessions for each phase where you can ask any questions you have, get clarification, or learn new things from the experts! Besides, upon completion, you will receive a certificate, which you can proudly display in your office and show your employer. We’re constantly updating and improving every aspect of the program, and our alums get those updates free of charge.

  • Can I take this program on my own time?

    Yes, all phases of the program are 100% self-paced, which means you can enjoy the Academy at any time and any place while you are enrolled. There will be monthly live sessions; however, if you are busy and unable to attend, you can access the replay recording in the slack channel.

  • Can I repeat some of the lessons in the program?

    Definitely! You get unlimited access to all lessons, downloadable materials for as long as you are enrolled in the program. Just log in and start learning!

  • Will I get a certificate?

    Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.

  • Is there a money-back guarantee?

    Of course! We genuinely want you to succeed, which is why we offer a 7- day money-back guarantee. But, let us say this upfront. This Ignite Learning Academy is the most comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program for those who are committed to creating successful eLearning courses. We are confident that if you do the work, you’ll get enormous benefits from this program. And we are happy to back that up with our risk-free guarantee. If you do the work and don’t get the value, submit your completed assignments and quizzes within the first seven days, and get a full and complete refund. Simple as that!
