Instructional Design: The Process – 1

Origin Learning

Instructional Design (ID) is a process or systematic approach to developing the various learning courses or programs. Enough has been written about ID and its various theories and models that define the various approaches or strategies to learning design. If we were to attend a workshop on Instructional Design, I would envision it to look something like this: >ADDIE model has been listed again and separately because of its importance in the ID process.

What Opportunities are there for Instructional Designers  &  Developers?

Adobe Captivate

In Ireland and the UK, we have a shortage of Instructional Designers, Developers and Trainers to meet demand. First, you need to identify what role you wish to take, designer, developer or trainer? Many designers don’t develop eLearning and the opposite is also true for developers. That said you may be required to design, develop and roll out the training for smaller companies and you may be the only person on board. The ADDIE Model.

Taxonomy of Learning Theories

E-Learning Provocateur

Taxonomy. To clear some of the obfuscation that surrounds learning theory, I have developed the following Taxonomy of Learning Theories. This taxonomy identifies key theories that apply to workplace learning, categorises them according to common properties, and illustrates the relationships among them. I hope that this taxonomy, along with the corresponding notes below, will assist you in using learning theory to inform your instructional design decisions.

A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

Instructional Design has come a long way. A 2015 research by ATD , titled ‘Instructional Design Now’, which is based on a survey of 1,120 instructional designers provides a current snapshot of ID in organizations and the challenges that they typically face. Consequently, training programs which were based on the principles of learning, instruction and human behavior, began to be developed.

Redefining the Taxonomy of eLearning

CommLab India

The core job of instructional designers is setting learning objectives that identify the content and activities of a course. Instructional designers have for long fallen back on the celebrated Bloom’s classification system, created for traditional classroom training, to define their learning objectives and create courses that meet the needs of learners. Generating new ideas, products, or ways of viewing things – Designing, constructing, planning.

Is eLearning Dead? Is Instructional Design Dying with It?

Kapp Notes

The company, Ambient Insight (Now Metaari ) publishes quantitative syndicated reports that break out revenues by customer segment (demand-side) and by product category (supply-side) based on thier industry-leading learning technology taxonomy and our proprietary Evidence-based Research Methodology (ERM). So let’s dig into the report because it’s not quite a death spiral and the need for good instructional design is bigger than ever. Death of Self-Pace eLearning.

While the usage of Bloom’s Taxonomy (BT) to nail the learning outcomes has been used for training over several decades, the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (RBT) brings in an added dimension that enables it to be used more effectively to design eLearning. In this blog, I touch upon the basics of Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (in contrast to Bloom’s Taxonomy). Then I move on to showcase how can you use RBT to design the learning architecture of eLearning courses.

How to Create Effective Test Questions

Since online learning often separates teachers from learners across time and distance, we rely on evaluations – in the form of tests, quizzes and assessments – to judge each student’s successful comprehension of the content (and to judge how well the course designers presented their information). As a general rule, a good question tests the 6-levels of intellectual understanding, as espoused in Bloom’s Taxonomy : Knowledge.
