Considerations for IEL Courseware Design and the Next Generation of E-Learning


European Journal of Contemporary Education Volume 6, Number 4, ISSN 2304-9650


The purpose of this study is to discuss strategies for developing integrated e-learning (IEL) courseware based on instructional design and technology (IDT) models and approaches as well as new discussions of e-learning. For this purpose, the study begins with the selection of one or more IDT models to conduct an e-courseware design including IEL modules based on instructional strategies and improvements. The authors discuss the strategies and steps that a design team should follow in designing integrated e-courseware, which gives way to effective e-learning with new variables such as job performance and learning. The steps include the development of content, units and modules for an IEL course. To recap, our purpose is to combine the necessary IDT models' strategies for the pedagogical design of an IEL. Powerful IDT models are also discussed so as to meet the very high expectations of IEL with new ideas and new responsibilities in the e-learning process. To develop high quality IEL courseware, we will explain the integrated e-courseware design steps and their practice in order to improve learning tasks, complex cognitive skills, attitudes and competences in the e-learning process, as well as defining job performance and the business environment. At the end of the study, the IEL dimensions, including pedagogical, technological and organizational dimensions, and the main barriers to implementation, including perspectives such as student, teacher-designer, learning materials, job performance, the next generation of e-learning in business and social learning, and context setting, will be discussed and presented.
