Emerging Trends in Instructional Delivery Systems
Bob Mosher reports about a discussion he had at the Training Director's Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada. During a breakout session he spoke with one of the attendees about the importance of good instructional design principles with e-learning systems. Mosher states that without good ISD principles, motivation "- the infamous 'if you build it, will they come, stay, and come back?' problem."
Learners in online programs often don't have the motivational factors present in traditional classroom settings. When the learner is required to take on more responsibility for his learning, resistance sometimes develops.
To respond to these motivational issues, instructional designers need to develop e-learning that is "focused, highly targeted, and applicable. Content needs to be more performance outcome driven and learner controlled."
With the absence of the traditional classroom setting, and e-learning still evolving, instructional designers need to ensure that learners are receiving sound instructional design principles, feedback and effective motivation.
