Ed. by Luca Botturi and S. Todd Stubbs.

Information Science Reference


480 pages




This collection of 21 articles addresses the continuing growth of e-learning and other educational projects that use instructional design (ID)techniques dependent on specific design languages and notation systems. Along with examinations of foundations and theory, the collection includes practical techniques and a set of research studies and commentaries. Topics include the modes of instructional design practice, facilitation of client understanding, drawing as a means of innovation in instructional design, and the power of design drawing in other design fields. Material on instructional design languages includes assessments of many of the products available, along with case studies and comparisons, and research studies address the transition between design and production of instructional software, the use of these techniques in university teaching, and their use to support process change in education. The very large format allows for illustrations, graphics and screen shots.
