  3. 3. Subject Matter Expert<br />You are supplied with tons of material. There is even a subject matter expert to help you out. <br />In other words, you have enough material to keep the learners reading for at least a month. <br />
  4. 4. You<br />However, we have a problem here.<br />
  5. 5. My employees should be able to complete the training in<br />1 <br />hour. <br />You<br />Client <br />
  6. 6. And did I tell you that training outcomes should be measurable… <br />You<br />Client <br />

  8. 8. Before…<br />After…<br />Instructional Design <br />Instructional Design (ID) is the systematic process of<br /> translating general principles of learning and <br />instruction into plans for instructional materials <br />and learning. <br />
  9. 9. Extra <br />Essential<br />In other words by applying the theories and practices of Instructional Design, you will able to separate the essential from the extra. <br />You will be able to identify what exactly your learners require.<br />
  10. 10. Enter here<br />You will also be able structure your content in such a manner that the learners move towards some pre-defined learning objectives.<br />
  11. 11. Performance <br />During <br />Before <br />After<br />At the end you will be able to measure if the objectives were met. <br />
  12. 12. The person who applies these theories and practices of Instructional Design is known as an Instructional Designer (ID).<br />ID<br />
  13. 13. Sounds cool! But what does this Instructional Designer (ID) person do? <br />
  14. 14. Well, she does exactly the same thing to an e-learning course that a scriptwriter does to a movie. <br />
  15. 15. She creates the foundation of an e-learning course by creating a document known as the storyboard. Like a movie script this document lists all the details of a course. <br />
  16. 16. Storyboard<br />In the storyboard an ID lays down the content collected and researched from various sources in a structured manner.<br />
  17. 17. She defines the learning objectives and makes sure that enough content is provided to meet those objectives. <br />
  18. 18. She also designs assessments to measure a learner’s performance. <br />She defines the learning objectives and makes sure that enough content is provided to meet those objectives. <br />
  19. 19. The storyboard acts a guideline for the design guy too. <br />It tells what the content should look like, how it will flow, where to sync the voiceover. <br />It also tells what kind of animations/interactivities to be created, where and what kind of images to be used and so on. <br />
