Instructional Design and Learning Theory

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Betty Rohlehr (Faculty), Mar 09, 2002
Comment: I spent approx one hour on the first day and about fifteen minutes on the second
The paper discusses the learning theories but what was more interesting is how
the paper demonstrated the relationship between the learning theories and their
application to learning and teaching using educational technology. Of
significance for me is how easily it suggests the effective use of these
learning theories to online teaching and learning. Simultaneously, it describes
the historical development of educational technology and how this development
paralleled the development of new and modification of other learning theories.
Quite obviously then, if these are appropriately used, faculty's teaching and
students' learning will be enhanced.
I found the site easy to navigate.

Technical Remarks:

I do not consider myself computer 'savvy' but I found it easy to use so I
see no reason for first time users to find it difficult.
Broad headings or the option of topics or authors etc. facilitate the navigation
of this site.
