This paper describes the use of a management process, Systematic Curriculum and Instructional Development (SCID), for developing online multimedia modules. The project, "Collaboratively Creating Multimedia Modules for Teachers and Professors," was funded by the USWEST Foundation. The curriculum development process involved teams of experts in teaching, computer science, and multimedia technology. The primary focus of the project was to teach college professors and K-12 teachers how to utilize multimedia to enhance their classroom instruction. The SCID process captured the content before the multimedia development strategy commenced to create electronic modules. The SCID process consists of five phases: analysis--uses needs analysis, job analysis, and task analysis; design--outlines the overall curriculum and develops the foundation for the training program; instructional development--determines what will be taught, what learning activities, materials and methods will be used, develops the learning guides, field testing, pilot testing, and revision processes; training implementation--activates the training plan, its evaluation, and documents learner achievement; and program evaluation--evaluates each of the five phases, including product, phase, and process evaluation. Each phase of the SCID process is described in detail. The SCID process proved to be an ideal management process among part-time people who worked on an irregular timetable. It kept all participants on task and bonded developers to a common language with a specific purpose. (SWC)
