Do you choose your tools based on your instructional design needs, or do you force your instructional design to accommodate the tool you have? Many tools to develop eLearning exist, and your instructional design should take advantage of the strengths of the best tools available.

Participants in this case-study session will learn several scenarios of instructional design approaches. For each approach you will discuss which tools are best used to develop each approach. You will also address some problem areas and learn why compromises are sometimes necessary. You’ll be able to present your own instructional design approach ideas, and together we will discuss the tools to use for your own design approaches.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to decide on a design approach that works
  • How to determine which tools will best serve your needs
  • How to determine when more than one tool might be necessary
  • How to cut through the hype!

Audience: Those needing to make knowledgeable decisions about which tools to use to meet their design needs. Participants should have a basic understanding of eLearning design principles.
