The classic guide to instructional design, fully updated for the new ways we learn Rapid Instructional Design is the industry standard guide to creating effective instructional materials, providing no-nonsense practicality rather than theory-driven text. Beginning with a look at what "instructional design" really means, readers are guided step-by-step through the ADDIE model to explore techniques for analysis, design, development, intervention, and evaluation. This new third edition has been updated to cover new applications, technologies, and concepts, and includes many new templates, real-life examples, and additional instructor materials. Instruction delivery has expanded rapidly in the nine years since the second edition's publication, and this update covers all the major advances in the field. The major instructional models are expanded to apply to e-learning, MOOCs, mobile learning, and social network-based learning. Informal learning and communities of practice are examined, as well.

Designers must determine the learner's current state and needs, define the end goals of the instruction, and create an intervention to assist in the transition. This book is a complete guide to the process, helping readers design efficient, effective materials. Learn the ins and outs of the ADDIE model Discover shortcuts for rapid design Design for e-learning, Millennials, and MOOCs Investigate methods for emerging avenues of instruction This book does exactly what a well-designed course should do, providing relevant guidance for anyone who wants to know how to apply good instructional design.

You probably have data on course enrollments and completion and pass rates on course tests, but what about data on how learners are applying their new knowledge? The Experience API (xAPI) can help you collect and track more complete data on your learning programs and their results. An application programming interface (API) is a means for transmitting data across software systems. xAPI allows you to document and track learning experiences. In this issue of TD at Work, “Making Sense of xAPI,” Megan Torrance and Rob Houck offer an overview of xAPI and provide guidance to help you get started making xAPI part of your learning management system. This issue includes: · definitions of essential terms · sample activity statements for xAPI · examples of types of data to collect with xAPI · discussion of how xAPI relates to action mapping, the Kirkpatrick model, and the 70-20-10 model · an xAPI project planning guide.
