An Architectural Approach to Instructional Design

Winner of the 2014 AECT Design & Development Outstanding Book Award An Architectural Approach to Instructional Design is organized around a groundbreaking new way of conceptualizing instructional design practice. Both practical and theoretically sound, this approach is drawn from current international trends in architectural, digital, and industrial design, and focuses on the structural and functional properties of the artifact being designed rather than the processes used to design it. Harmonious with existing systematic design models, the architectural approach expands the scope of design discourse by introducing new depth into the conversation and merging current knowledge with proven systematic techniques. An architectural approach is the natural result of increasing technological complexity and escalating user expectations. As the complexity of design problems increases, specialties evolve their own design languages, theories, processes, tools, literature, organizations, and standards. An Architectural Approach to Instructional Design describes the implications for theory and practice, providing a powerful and commercially relevant introduction for all students of instructional design.

Master modern web and network data modeling: both theory and applications. In Web and Network Data Science, a top faculty member of Northwestern University’s prestigious analytics program presents the first fully-integrated treatment of both the business and academic elements of web and network modeling for predictive analytics. Some books in this field focus either entirely on business issues (e.g., Google Analytics and SEO); others are strictly academic (covering topics such as sociology, complexity theory, ecology, applied physics, and economics). This text gives today's managers and students what they really need: integrated coverage of concepts, principles, and theory in the context of real-world applications. Building on his pioneering Web Analytics course at Northwestern University, Thomas W. Miller covers usability testing, Web site performance, usage analysis, social media platforms, search engine optimization (SEO), and many other topics. He balances this practical coverage with accessible and up-to-date introductions to both social network analysis and network science, demonstrating how these disciplines can be used to solve real business problems.

Millions compete for exposure on Google, Yahoo!, and Bing, but 99% of them fail to get results. As the founder of leading digital intelligence firm, AdGooroo, search advertising authority Richard Stokes is in a unique position to reveal what’s going wrong and provide solutions to fix it. Since the publication of the first edition, there have been a number of revolutionary changes in paid search. First, we are increasingly searching from our cell phones – not just desktops. Mobile search now accounts for 15% of searches in the US (up from ~0% in 2009). Second, Google is no longer the only game in town. Bing now accounts for 30% of all US searches and is growing in importance worldwide. Finally, “Search Extensions” have become a powerful new technique that search advertisers can use to gain an edge on the competition. With them, advertisers can collect phone numbers and email addresses with their ads, limit their ads to certain times of day, deliver coupons to nearby customers, and even provide handy “call me” buttons that are displayed only on cell phones. In this new edition, Stokes details all this and more, providing information exclusive to this guide and of priceless value to its more advanced search audience. With insider insight from Stokes and using proven strategies from today’s search advertising elite, paid search advertisers discover how to drive significantly more traffic to their site, dramatically increase click-through rates, steal impressions from competitors, boost their conversions, and increase their sales by unbelievable amounts.
