I would like to delve into the analysis and design of the course.

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): " Visual Thinking, Imagery, and the Brain" (Eide Neurolearning Blog)

Mark Oehlert

" So now I start thinking about how this is profoundly different than thinking about "visual learners" or "visual learning styles" and how this recognizes that unless we are blind (literally - and even then, if not blind from birth, do we still process information through imagery?) - we process/learn information, at least partially, through the use of imagery - even in the absence of graphics.

Is instructional systems design still relevant?

Clive on Learning

As November's Big Question, Learning Circuits asks Are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant in a world of rapid elearning, faster time-to-performance, and informal learning? Pretty much any logical model for any activity consists of a bit of digging around to find out what's needed (analysis) and then some form of plan-do-review cycle. However take this too much to heart and you'll end up with analysis paralysis. I'm a musician and I know a fair bit about musical theory.
