What is Instructional Design?

The process by which instruction is improved through the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of learning materials. Instructional designers often use technology and multimedia as tools to enhance instruction.

Why use Instructional Design to supplement my class?

Instructional design provides clear instructional goals, learners characteristics are considered, and students are engaged with interactive instruction. Other benefits may include collaboration, lessons designed to meet the needs of students, improved student performance, and more engaging learning experiences.
