Free On-line How-To Guide for Course Design Available from IEEE
The IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) has posted an online tool for
course designers, "Reference Guide for Instructional Design and
Development." This how-to guide was developed by EAB in partnership with
Telcordia Technologies to help individuals design courses and tutorials
efficiently and effectively. Based on the Systematic Design of Instruction
by Walter Dick and Lou Chaney, the guide outlines six distinct steps to
acquire "sound principles of design" when creating courses. These clear
steps are displayed on a colorful, friendly webpage. Learn to:
 
· Assess the needs of the instructional situation
· Analyze the learners
· Write learning objectives
· Select an instructional strategy that fits you assessment
· Develop materials that enhance your strategy
· Evaluate your work
 
With each step there is a concise concept outline, tools to aid in the
application of the step, and online references that can add to the material
in the outline. Links to suggestions for further study are on each page.
This guide will help designers to add education value to their tutorials,
which can qualify them for Continuing Education Unit credits. Access this
guide at www.ieee.org/organizations/eab/tutorials/refguide/mms01.htm.
