Instructional Design of WWW-Based Course-Support Environments: From Case to General Principles.
Dijkstra, Sanne; Collis, Betty; Eseryel, Deniz
This paper describes the design of a World Wide Web-based course support environment for a course in instruction design theories. An overview of how the environment was used as part of the course experience is given, and the student evaluation of the course is summarized. The paper concludes that such a course-support environment can extend the teaching and learning process, if well designed, by bringing added self responsibility. Such a tool is not seen as replacing the instructor, but extending him or her. The design of the environment should reflect this. Although this paper describes the particular case of a course about instructional design, it argues that the conclusions can be valid for courses of a variety of disciplines and instructional approaches. One figure shows the roster of the "Instructional Design Theories" course support site. (AEF)
