…many well-educated instructional designers who have not worked with interactive technologies attempt to apply designs that don’t translate well from the classroom or text book to e-learning.  The medium really does demand different design decisions, and there are important skills to be mastered if one is to become a successful e-learning designer.

The quote above is from Michael Allen’s second book in his e-learning library.  These books are must-reads for anyone planning to create their own own e-learning, regardless of background, education, or experience.

The book provides a thoughtful overview of instructional design, complete with recommended reading and resources, a design methodology to focus on measurable results (ISPI standard #1), and a systematic approach that accounts for factors beyond learning outcomes and content, such as prior learning and expectations.

I guarantee this book will have a positive impact on your e-learning and traditional learning development.
