Abstract

Researchers are developing automated instructional design systems which guide subject matter experts (SMEs) through the complexities of courseware development. Enabling SMEs to perform many of the authoring activities associated with courseware development has two distinct advantages: (1) costs are contained; and (2) SMEs can make optional use of new technologies. This paper focuses on a research called the Guided Approach to Instructional Design Advising (GAIDA). GAIDA incorporates case-based reasoning in a hypermedia framework in order to convey instructional design expertise to novice courseware developers. The paper reviews the theory and development of GAIDA, including interim results of an extensive evaluation effort. The evaluation of GAIDA revealed that users were confused by a completely open hypermedia tutorial on instructional systems development tested in conjunction with the first GAIDA version; users were able to follow and benefit from the structured hypermedia approach; and controlled studies of novice instructional designers showed that courseware developed using GAIDA was generally effective.
