This course presented me with activities related to the design of a learning application. I explored advantages and disadvantages of multiple learning environments and content delivery technologies. Il developed a plan for an individualized learning project that includes a template for design of a specific environment. Course topics include education and communication theory, course and content delivery methods, asynchronous and synchronous technologies, multimedia design, usability testing, and integration of multimedia objects within instructional programs and systems.
