Considerations for Developing Constructivist Web-Based Learning

International Journal of Instructional Media Volume 31, Number 3, ISSN 0092-1815


Development of Web-based learning has started a revolution in instructional design that is providing new opportunities for education. Instructional design for educational purposes is the systematic design of teaching and learning environments as well as instructional systems. Instructional design may include various facets of didactic methods (such as direct instruction, self-instructional textbooks, and instructional video), and media (such as computer based training, interactive multimedia, Web-based learning, and elements of distance learning). In the wake of the wide application of the Internet, the Web has become more popular for educational instruction. Within the context of K-12 or higher education, instruction designers are usually asked to evaluate whether instructions designed for Web-based environments are at least as successful at fostering students' learning as are classroom teaching techniques used on campus. Thus, the purpose of this study is to offer considerations when developing Web-based learning that is based on constructivist approach.
