The Evolution of Distance Education: Implications for Instructional Design on the Potential of the Web
Moller, Leslie; Foshay, Wellesley R.; Huett, Jason
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v52 n3 p70-75 Jun 2008
In this article, the authors offer the first of a three-part series on distance education. The authors discuss key trends in training and development which have five profound impacts on the field of Instruction Design (ID). These five effects concern: (1) quality; (2) needs assessment, ROI and measurement of outcomes; (3) the influence and fusion of training, performance support, and knowledge management; (4) the need for better instructional systems design (ISD) methodologies; and (5) the revision of learning models. Taken together, these factors will affect dramatically the evolution of ID as a field--and the effect may be a transformative one.
