Instructional Design: Home

This guide provides recommended resources and learning materials for Instructional Design.

 The discipline of instructional design offers a series of complementary design practices that enable the identification of needs and the design of best solutions. These solutions are most often instructional in nature, but they can also be informational or activity-oriented—focusing on improved processes, tools, and conditions for human activity. ID is based on a systematic methodology for assessing needs and developing goals, analyzing the content domain and target population, and designing, developing, and evaluating solutions.
