ME:120.807 :: Design of Instructional Programs

Course Description

Offered: Fourth Quarter / Summer, First Year
Instructors: Anne Altemus, Assistant Professor
Credits: 3 Credits

An exploration of computer-assisted instruction and educational multi-media. The focus of the course is on the development process rather than creation of a final, completely functional interactive program, DVD, or web site. Our rationale is that by understanding the process of creation it can be applied in diverse future situations, while a finished product just stands alone. Students will work in teams to produce all of the project planning and development materials as well as a final presentation of the design. Throughout the course, students will be asked to wear the hats of instructional designer, project manager, subject matter experts, illustrator, user interface designer, and end user.
