Development and Formative Evaluation of Multimedia Case Studies for Instructional Design and Technology Students
Sugar, William
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v58 n5 p36-52 Sep 2014
This study describes the development of three case studies that included a combination of multimedia production and instructional design skills within a particular setting. These case studies incorporated real-life incidents from 47 professional instructional designers. These instructional designers described a total of 146 activities involving instructional design and/or multimedia production activities. Employing an emergent theme analysis approach, nine distinct themes developed from these activities and were included in the case studies. These themes included: "Collaboration;" "Diffusion of Innovations;" "Formative Evaluation;" "Instructional Design;" "Interactive Instruction;" "Learner Analysis;" "Online Instruction;" "Technical Infrastructure;" and "Video Solutions." Fifty-seven Instructional Design and Technology graduate students evaluated the effectiveness of these case studies and considered the case studies as being valuable in furthering their understanding of related multimedia production and instructional design activities. The intent of these case studies was to enable Instructional Design and Technology students to comprehend the relationship between multimedia production and instructional design activities.
