Human-Centred Design is the Key to Positive User Feedback and Obtaining the Results you Desire

Belvista Studios has an exciting announcement!

We are launching a Human-Centred Design for Instructional Designers and eLearning Developers course! 

This course will enable instructional designers and eLearning developers to use the principles of Human-centred Design to create effective learning experiences and solve business problems.

This will be the toolkit for the rest of your career.

From our perspective, placing a strong focus on your user (i.e. your learner) is no longer optional. Products and solutions that are successful put their users at the heart of their design process. Think of how Uber overtook Taxis in the market. Uber achieved this by putting their users at the heart of their design.

  • Uber created an easily accessible mobile app that enables users to call upon a car at the tap of a finger. Now users do not need to wave down a car on the street.
  • Users receive an estimate of how much the ride will cost before they book it. They do not need to worry about being overcharged at the end of a ride. 
  • Users receive information about their driver and their rating before they get into their ride. They do not have to second guess their safety as much as before. 
  • If users leave an item in a ride, they now know exactly what car they were in and using the app, they can report their lost item with the tap of a finger. They no longer need to stress about trying to get in contact with their driver and remember a registration plate. 
Uber considered their users’ needs and it worked.

When you have a deep understanding of your users, you can better understand the problem that you are solving and in turn create a solution that makes a difference.

Our team at Belvista Studios have each been involved in past projects that did not hit the mark.

Either feedback from users was poor or business goals were not being met.

We knew that there had to be a better way and when we discovered Human-centred Design, everything fell into place.

Once we started putting our users at the heart of our design, we realised that we were gaining a better understanding of the problems that we were solving.

This meant that we were focusing on solving the right problems, which was a game changer when it came to meeting business goals and improving employee performance.

Keeping our users front of mind through the processes that we took enabled us to design solutions that were tailored for the people completing them.

This resulted in users connecting with the solution and adjusting their behaviours in order to meet the project goals.

Our team knows that Human-centred Design works and this is why we use the approach for our projects.

We are inspired to share this approach with others in the industry, so that you too can experience the results that we do and ultimately meet your project goals.

What Challenges will it Help you Overcome?

  • Successfully solve your business problem/challenge. 
  • Launch a solution that is tailored to the needs of your learners and your organisation/client.
  • Launch a solution that makes a difference.

Before we completely design this course and polish it up for you to access, we need your help, in the true spirit of Human-centred Design. Have no fear, your help will not leave you empty handed. This is a win-win deal. To support our team to put our time, resources and energy into this course, away from our client work, we need to hear from you (our users) that it will add value.

How can you show your interest? Well, this is your first opportunity to get in at the lowest price.

If we are able to sell 10 courses during the pre-sale we will know that there is demand for us to put everything into making this course awesome and be ready to launch it by April 2nd, 2020.

  • If the pre-sale goal is achieved, we will develop the course and those that did not take advantage of the pre-sale can purchase it for the full price of A$825.

Your A$375 investment will be returned in the form of a 1 hour personal coaching call and 1.5 hour group coaching call, booked in by 20 January, 2020. As well, you will receive one of our paid templates that you would like.

Who are the Course Authors?

This course will be designed by the founder of Belvista Studios, Kim Tuohy, in partnership with Hannah Grennan, a learning experience designer in the Belvista Studios team (with a background in Psychology, as well as an interest in humans and how we design for them).

Kim and Hannah have a strong interest in Human-centred Design and have been researching the approach, presented to others in the industry on how to apply it and ultimately have incorporated it into the processes that they use for projects at Belvista Studios.

Both Kim and Hannah are inspired to share their knowledge and experience of using Human-centred Design and feel confident that it will add value to others in the industry.

Thank you!

Thank you, our amazing community, for all of the messages, DMs and support you have shown us.

We hope this course helps you rethink what you are capable of as you pursue your personal and professional goals.


What happens if I sign up for the pre-sale and not enough funds are made for the course to be created?

If we do not hit our pre-sale target, we will not proceed with making this course yet. Your A$375 investment will be returned in the form of a 1 hour personal coaching call and 1.5 hour group coaching call, booked in by 20 January, 2020. As well, you will receive one of our paid templates that you would like.

What if I cannot gain access to my users?

That’s ok. Activities can be based on assumptions and research, allowing you to empathise to a certain extent without jumping in and designing something for them without considering them at all.

Are there any types of projects where Human-centred Design does not add value?

We haven’t come across any yet.

Can I connect with your team for further support and coaching throughout this process?

Group coaching will be available as part of this course. There will also be discussion functions throughout. You may want to take advantage of the many other ways you can interact with us, such as Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
