This is an excellent course for anyone who wants to transition into eLearning and become an exceptional freelance consultant. Thank you, Marina!

Tina Marsh

Marina is a true gem. Consulting with her convinced me to go freelance and finally get the financial and time freedom I always dreamed of. Can’t recommend her enough!

Alex Kiser

I enrolled in Marina’s program while I was still an elementary school teacher and wanted to take on Elearning as a side hustle. Six months later, I became a full-fledged instructional designer and regret not switching careers 10 years ago. For anyone thinking about pursuing a career in this field, Marina is your go-to person!!!!

Instructional Design and ELearning Specialist

Marina Arshavskiy

I am a multi-award-winning instructional design and eLearning expert with more than 15 years of experience in ID and eLearning and I have been running my own freelance consulting business for 9 years. My ultimate goal is to help people put their knowledge into powerful, instructionally sound eLearning courses and transform complex ideas into easy-to-follow step-by-step processes. I help instructional designers create engaging eLearning solutions while applying current best practices, top theories, and actionable strategies to the practice of instructional design. My work has been featured in T&D magazine, ELearning Industry, Training Magazine, California Management Review,, SHRM, and more.


  • How is this Freelance program different from other online courses/programs?

    You get unlimited access to the training. You also get full transcripts of all lessons, so you can follow along. In addition, there is a discussion board where we talk about the course, the exercises, the activities, and All Things ELearning! We’re constantly updating and improving every aspect of the program, and our alums get those updates free of charge.

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

    I get it. My 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 this course 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.

  • Is there a money-back guarantee?

    Of course! I genuinely want you to succeed, which is why I offer a generous 14-day money back guarantee. But, let me say this upfront. The Instructional Design for Freelance Consultants is the most comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program for (aspiring) instructional designers and eLearning consultants who are committed to creating successful eLearning courses. I am confident that if you do the work, you’ll get enormous benefit from this program. And I’m 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 two weeks, and get a full and complete refund. Simple as that!

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

    Underneath each training video, you’re invited to comment, post your questions and get the help you need. Often within 24-48 hours, you’ll have a response from me. If you are having a challenge you need help with, write and we’ll take care of you as quickly as we can. There is also an online discussion board where you can ask questions, discuss exercises, activities or anything else related to instructional design and eLearning. You will get direct support from me and other course participants.

  • Will I get a certificate?

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

  • Can I take this course at any time?

    Yes, the entire Instructional Design for Freelance Consultants program is 100% self-paced. This means you can enjoy it at any time and any place

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

    Definitely! Once you purchase the program, you get unlimited access to all lessons, downloadable materials, and future updates. You don’t need to worry about renewing your access! Just login and start learning!
