Most e-learning is designed using instructional model that were first introduced more than thirty years ago as a solution to classroom training, In this must-have book, Allen reviews the basics of instructional design and then lifts the lid on some common misconceptions that arise from what people think they know about ISD. Although e-learning benefits from all the traditional characteristics of instructional design, it also has unique requirements, so Allen focuses on how to think differently about ISD and shows where and how it needs to be modified to make applicable to the unique world of e-learning.
