A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

A large number of psychologists and educational researchers were summoned to develop training materials , as well as to apply their knowledge of evaluation to assess trainees’ skills. He identified three principal domains of learning: Cognitive (what one knows or thinks), Psychomotor (what one does, physically) and Affective (what one feels, or what attitudes one has). Methods were being evaluated as to how the PC could be used in an academic and interactive context.
