TOOLS AND TEMPLATES
LEARNER PERSONA TEMPLATE
A key part of the learning design process is developing a deep understanding of the learners you’re designing for. We recommend creating learner personas based on your user research. This is the persona template we use.
A great way to compile a Learner Persona is by using these ‘powerful questions’ in your learner interviews. These are designed to move from functional questions to more emotion-based ones.
