In this hands-on course you will learn to create an instructional
design plan for a Web-based instruction project of your choice (with
instructor guidance and approval).
The intellectual focus will be on using good instructional design and
Web page design principles. Students will be introduced to Web-based
Teaching techniques and materials using standard Web pages and free
or low-cost communications tools.
We will overview of the state-of-the-art of web-based instructional
technology and its applications. We will review the use of teaching
materials created with multi-media plug-ins and classroom
This workshop requires a significant amount of Web-based activity,
project work, and readings.
It is a three-part course. Each part includes lecture, discussion
and hands-on activities that will step participants through creating
or an instructional design plan for a unit of Web-based instruction:
1. The instructional design process and Web design
2. Reviewing and choosing Web-based instruction graphics, media,
and communications tools, as well as support and management options.
3. Creating a Web-based instructional design plan
1. Participants will be able to use clear instructional design
process to design distance education/Web-based instructional units.
2. Participants will be able to evaluate distance
education/Web-based tutorials, workshops, or courses in terms of
their design and relevance.
3. Participants will be able to identify, evaluate, and choose
appropriate distance education/Web-based teaching technologies within
the context of a good instructional design plan (e.g., media,
graphics, communications, and management tools).
4. Participants will end the session with a completed
instructional design plan for a single unit of Web-based instruction
of their choice (with instructor guidance and approval).
Librarians and other information specialists who are interested in
learning instructional design and reviewing distance
education/Web-based teaching tools and options.
Some experience with Web-based instruction is assumed. (e.g., have
taken a course online, completed a Web-based tutorial as a learner).
No Web-based instruction experience is expected, but Web-based
teachers will find the course a good review and reinforcement
experience. Participants should know how to use e-mail and a current
standard Web Browser, e.g.,Mozilla/Firebird, Netscape 7.0 or IE 5.5
or higher is preferred. Some HTML or HTML editor experience will be
useful. Level of instruction is intermediate-advanced.
*You do not have to be a member of MLA to take the course nor to
receive CE credits for it.
