Deconstructing Videotaped Instruction for Online Delivery: Instructional Design in Reverse
AbstractThis paper examines a project in which videotaped face-to-face class sessions were converted into interactive instructional modules for Internet delivery. The development of the online class involved the challenge of teaching the advanced Microsoft Office Suite – normally skills learned hands-on – to distance learners. Sixteen interactive modules were eventually produced by using a process the authors describe as the instructional design in reverse. This paper discusses the importance of the proper application of instructional design theory, the actual production processes used for developing the modules, and important lessons learned in working with interactive multimedia course content for online delivery.
