Thank you very much Lee! I'll definitely check them out.
I can highly recommend the CIPD course run by Clive Shepherd. It is a five day course and quite intensive with input from Graphic Designers, Audio and Video experts and is very practical. His accompanying text 'Digital Learning Content - a designer's guide' is a useful handbook.

Thank you for your reply. That's very good to hear about your experience as I was thinking about doing the CIPD one.
By any chance, did you also consider doing the one by the ILD (TAP). It also looks interesting but much more expensive than the CIPD one:
No I not aware of that ILD one so sorry I cannot comment on it.
Best of luck,
I don't have a course to recommend but a couple of books that I recently read as part of the CIPD L&D Certificate;
CLARK, R, MAYER, R. (2011) e-Learning and the science of instruction: proven guidelines for consumers and designers of multimedia learning. 3rd edition. San Francisco: CA: Pfeiffer
and I also really liked the one mentioned by Gill below, here's the link.
SHEPHERD, C. (2012). Digital Learning Content, a designer’s guide. [Online]. Eastly: Onlignment. Available from: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=wb2JAwAAQBAJ&pg=PP1&lpg...
I have some experience of watching Articulate 2 in use.
I believe the keyis not the technology but the subtle skills of production preparation which you only get with some experience of making education materials. Getting your eye in with thinking like a producer might help more. The people I saw were taking a very long time to put a complete package together.
