INSTRUCTIONAL
DESIGN SUPPORT
SYSTEM (IDSS)

This customized solution assisted SMEs in developing consistent and instructionally sound classroom courseware by following a controlled and structured development process. The combination of a wizard-based adaptive questionnaire and automated checklists guided the development process through a basic instructional design methodology.

Thank you all for wrapping this up. We have an excellent product coming out-of-the-box and I look forward to working with Vidyatech in continuing to build a better eLearning development tool.

WHAT VIDYATECH DID?

Challenge

An effective courseware must cover the subject extensively and follow sound instructional theories. SMEs bring in domain expertise and Instructional Designers ensure the subject is presented as per the target audience and learning objectives.

Since both come into the project lifecycle at different stages, it was critical to have a mechanism wherein SMEs could share their knowledge, which Instructional Designers could refer to later at time of e-learning development.

Solution

Vidyatech’s team of instructional designers and developers thoroughly studied and identified the existing development process.

We developed the tool that provided wizard like interface to present the questionnaire. This customized tool had in-built workflow for collaborative task analysis, course design, and content development.

As part of the exclusive solution, we implemented a structured adaptive questionnaire to capture instructional design decisions and strategies based on a predetermined methodology.

Checklists were also identified and implemented to help SMEs take better decisions based on best practices.
