Training Module Project Plan

  1. 1. VCT 5660: Principles of Multimedia and Courseware Design Database Design Sherri Orwick Ogden 11-11-2009 Plan overview This learning module will demonstrate how to design a database for Microsoft Access. The module will begin with a definition of a database and how databases differ from an Excel spreadsheet or “flat” data storage. The module will then explain the key elements of a database and how planning is important to ensure desired results. The module will provide examples and allow the user to practice designing a database based on provided data. Content research The following resources will be used to obtain the content for this interactive learning module: • Microsoft Access Manuals • Developed training exercises • Microsoft Office Online http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access/HP051891361033.aspx Audience analysis This module will be designed for adults with a working knowledge of computers that wish to use Microsoft Access in their work environment. Scope The scope of this interactive learning module will include the following: • What is a database? How is it different than a spreadsheet or “flat” data storage? • How to properly plan to create a database. • How to categorize data into related tables • How to determine the fields needed in the tables. • What are key fields and when to use them. • How to build relationships between tables. • Proper design vs poor design • Try it! An opportunity for the user to place fields appropriately in separate tables and create relationships. Proposed learning objectives and outcomes After completing this learning module, students will: • Understand what a database is and how it differs from an Excel spreadsheet or “flat” data storage. • Understand the necessary steps in planning a database. • Understand the necessary components in designing a functional database. • Separate fields and components into appropriate, functional categorized tables. • Understand the concept of relationships between tables. • Apply the knowledge in an interactive exercise.

Powerpoint will be the base software and Raptivity and Articulate will be used to integrate the interactive segments. Interactive Segments The module will have a high degree of audio content to help explain the complicated topic of database design. Diagrams will be included to help the student visualize the information. Interactive segments will allow the user to demonstrate information provided in applicable sections of the module. Instructional Design Theory Malcolm Knowles’ instructional design theory is appropriate for this module given the adult audience. The module will include sections to explain why using a database would be helpful to them, show it could have immediate value, and allow students to learn
