Delivery system/media selection can be effected by available
of existing instructional materials, production/implementation constraints, amount of instructor
Components of instructional package: instructional materials, assessments, course
management information (instructor’s manual).
Selecting existing instructional materials:
SCORM (sharable content object reference model)-e-learning standards for interchangeability of
learning objects; goal-centered criteria (congruence b/w content & objectives, adequacy of
content, authority, accuracy, currency, objectivity); learner-centered criteria (vocabulary levels,
developmental/motivational/interest level, background, language/other needs); learning-centered
criteria (preinstructional materials, correct content sequencing, student participation, adequate
feedback, appropriate assessments, adequate follow-through, delivery system/media appropriate,
adequate learner guidance); context-centered criteria (authenticity & feasibility).
also material developer & instructor, can have instructor very prominent or more of a facilitator,
adjust material as necessary.
When designer not instructor (part of ID team), must have precise
specifications & teamwork skills; avoid designing based on stereotypes.
make rough draft (quick-low-cost version, formative evaluation); rapid prototyping (analyze &
develop simultaneously in iterative process); use various artistic/technical skills.
