Learning is About People.

We keep people at the center of all our designs, helping learners achieve learning outcomes and helping instructors advance learner success. We also encourage purposeful interactions, peer-to-peer and instructor-to-student that promote deeper learning.


What is learning design without people? We fully embrace faculty and student learning needs throughout the design process.

best practices

We know what works. We’ve tested, applied and validated the research and learning science to back it up.

equity & inclusion

The path to great learning includes every learner, and always provides alternative pathways. Flexible, purposeful design ensures equity, parity and access for all.

collaboration & engagement

In learning and design, people achieve more together.

backward design

Knowing where you want your learners to land guides how to design the path for getting there.

active learning

People learn by doing. Actively engaging the learner in the learning experience helps advance success.


Every experience has a story. Here are a few of ours.

I want to take a minute to say thanks and let you know what a terrific job the O’Donnell Learn team did on the Covid Vaccine Rise course. The turnaround for the project was extremely fast, and there was a great deal of critical detail and information that had to be included. And the O’Donnell team literally covered the globe in time zones – sharing the urgency of the mission.
