Instructional Designers

Instructional Designers design courses that will effectively teach specific skills. They create instructor-led and virtual instructor-led courses as well as Web and computer-based courses. Most of the information provided on my website can be used by any Instructional Designer, but a few sections apply specifically to the process of creating online training. With numerous software tools, guidelines, stylesheets and reusable files, these Instructional Designers create training modules destined for self-guided, computer-based instruction.

This website:

    ·  Explores the role of Instructional Designers
    ·  Defines the tasks and responsibilities of Online Course Developers
    ·  Highlights some of the tools used to create online courses
    ·  Provides online references for each subject explored
    ·  Shows some ID and graphics examples

Thank you for visiting!
