Instructional Design for Web-based Training blends instructional design and development tasks with Web design issues to outline a methodology for creating effective Web-based training (WBT). This book is based on the perspective that effective WBT does not derive solely from the use of Internet technology, but must be founded on proven instructional design techniques as well. Each chapter addresses key implications such interplay can have for a WBT project team, target learners, training goals, and technical possibilities from planning through implementation. This book is intended as a detailed how-to primer that integrates fundamental principles with the nuts and bolts of WBT development. It addresses salient issues for instructional designers who are seeking a reliable guide to creating effective Web courses, but are not sure where to begin or how to proceed.
