Instructional designers have a variety of instructional design models, methods, and theories to use as a foundation for designing instruction. The course’s goals and outcomes drive the design and development of the course. Instructional designers need to select theories and methods that align with course outcomes and goals rather than designing a course around a particular theory. Online learning teams can use backwards design to design quality, aligned, learner-focused online learning environments. Collaboration of course developers and instructional designers aids in ensuring alignment. This collaboration involves brainstorming and exploring ideas for establishing the pedagogical framework for the course. However, in many cases, discussion between the instructional designer and course developer is not enough to help course developers successfully visualize how to align their pedagogical framework. Therefore, interactive whiteboards can be utilized to visual the design process.
