E-learning Documentation – Part 2 – The Instructional Design Documents

Once everything has been agreed with the client in The Project Charter, then next phase is to map out, in as much detail as possible, what the learners will actually experience in the course. This is done in the instructional design documentation.


In this documentation, the instructional designer will include just about everything that the e-learning developer will need to actually create the courseware, as well as many more general details. Typically the ID documentation includes things like an overview of the curriculum and its hierarchy, a  styleguide, scripts for narration and so on.

In the documents attached here, you’ll see all the background preparation I have put into a course I am working on at the moment. The course is on Principles of PowerPoint Design and I’ll actually be publishing it in about a week or so (and I’ll be sure to link to it here.) In the meantime, take a look through the documents, you’ll see the course I’m planning is fairly ambitious, but should be good fun!
