In the preceding lessons, you learned about the first two stages of the ADDIE Instructional Development process: Analysis and Design. At this point, it should be clear to you that prior to any development, it is essential that you take the time to plan your analysis, perform your learner and task analysis, and design your learning objectives and course assessments.

  5. Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 >>Unit 6: Development<< Unit 7 Unit 8 >>Lesson 6-1: User Interface Development<< Lesson 6-2: Media Selection Lesson 6-3: Course Revision Page 5 of 50 Have you ever taken a course, or visited a web site, that used background colors and text colors that just didn’t work well together? How easy is it to read this text? Does it hurt your eyes? Can you imagine being forced to take an entire course that used colors like this? Do you think you would learn much, or do you think you might quit early because of a headache? This is one example of poor interface design.

  6. Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 >>Unit 6: Development<< Unit 7 Unit 8 >>Lesson 6-1: User Interface Development<< Lesson 6-2: Media Selection Lesson 6-3: Course Revision Page 6 of 50 Is there something wrong with this slide? Don’t actually read all the text below, just step back and look at the overall slide layout. Could it be that there is just too much text on this one slide? Would taking an entire course full of slides like this motivate you to learn? This is another example of poor interface design. Don’t read this part, it’s just filler text designed to make a point…As described in Assignment 2, ID-SME is a web-based course designed for subject matter experts (SMEs) who need to create instruction that effectively transfers their expertise to others. As a basic course in instructional design, ID-SME discusses the ADDIE process with a focus on “how” one goes about designing and developing effective instruction, without delving too far into the theory or details behind the “why” of the ADDIE process. ID-SME provides SMEs with the basic knowledge and skills needed to create web-based course materials that are based on sound instructional design principles. At a high level, the target audience for this instruction is SMEs who have little to no knowledge of instructional design practices. Their primary job responsibilities revolve around their area of expertise – software engineering – not instructional design or development, and they may or may not have access to an instructional design staff. They are interested in instructional design only as a means to better transfer their subject matter knowledge to others. More specifically, the target for this project is a software engineer with an advanced degree who is very comfortable with technology.

The problem with this slide is a little more subtle. It has to do with the placement of the navigation buttons. Although their placement may work okay, it’s not ideal. This is a third example of poor interface design. Instructional Design for Subject Matter Experts (ID-SME)

Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 >>Unit 6: Development<< Unit 7 Unit 8 >>Lesson 6-1: User Interface Development<< Lesson 6-2: Media Selection Lesson 6-3: Course Revision Page 8 of 50 And finally, is there something about this slide that doesn’t look quite right? Could it be that the graphic is a bit too large and the text box a bit too small? This is a fourth and final example of poor interface design.

Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 >>Unit 6: Development<< Unit 7 Unit 8 >>Lesson 6-1: User Interface Development<< Lesson 6-2: Media Selection Lesson 6-3: Course Revision Page 9 of 50 • As the preceding four examples illustrate, poor interface design can make learning frustrating.

Some of these advantages include… • Improved content clarity and organization. In most cases, learning is improved when information is presented in a clear, concise, and organized fashion. • Improved readability. If you cannot read the content, or if the material is organized such that you miss certain parts of it, you’re not likely to retain the material.

Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 >>Unit 6: Development<< Unit 7 Unit 8 >>Lesson 6-1: User Interface Development<< Lesson 6-2: Media Selection Lesson 6-3: Course Revision Page 10 of 50 • Good interface design, on the other hand, offers your learners numerous advantages. Some of these advantages include… • Improved content clarity and organization. In most cases, learning is improved when information is presented in a clear, concise, and organized fashion. • Improved user readability. If you cannot read the content, or if the material is organized such that you miss certain parts of it, you’re not likely to retain the material. Good interface design helps to ensure that all content is, at the very least, seen by the learner. • Enhanced motivation. If students are overwhelmed with too much information, or if the information is presented in such a way that it’s difficult to read, motivation can be negatively effected. An unmotivated student does not learn as effectively as a motivated student. Exit Instructional Design for Subject Matter Experts (ID-SME) Previous Next
