Implementing a World-Class E-Learning Technology in a Graduate Instructional Design Course
Snyder, Dawn; Gardner, Joel
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v40 n4 p389-399 2011-2012
At Franklin University, we are in the process of creating a master's degree in Instructional Design and Performance Technology. In one of the program courses, Enhancing Learning with Technology, we wanted students to experience applying principles of e-learning while using an industry standard e-learning application. However, we have learned by experience that it can be difficult to set up the appropriate infrastructure and support needed to successfully provide this technology in a course. In this article, we describe the unique instructional design context at Franklin University and the process we used to design and develop this course. We describe the process we used to select the technology, Articulate Rapid E-Learning Studio '09. We also describe the steps taken to support students in their use of this technology. We present several obstacles in designing and developing the course, as well as our solutions. (Contains 3 figures.)
