Getting It Right Gradually: An Iterative Method for Online Instruction Development
Kranch, Douglas A.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v9 n1 p29-34 2008
Distance education course designers working alone often do not have the luxury of fully developing their instruction before releasing their courses to students. The Individual Iterative Instructional Design (I3D) model is useful for educators who both develop and present their distance learning instructional units in areas ranging from higher education to the K-12 environment. By combining the flexibility of Morrison, Ross, and Kemp's (2003) model, the effectiveness of Gerlach and Ely's (1980) model, and the iterative nature of Sims and Jones' (2002) model, the I3D model adjusts the level of ID effort in each iteration without requiring more resources than individuals working alone could muster. The I3D model's 3-cycle development process also accounts for the varying amount of work instructional design requires during course development. (Contains 1 figure.)
