Season 1 – Episode 17: Instructional Designer for Online Learners

Instructional design is a fundamental component of creating any class, however; differences do exist between traditional face-to-face instruction and online instruction. Since the transition to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, online courses have continued to maintain their spot as a fixture within higher education in the U.S. Many students, have continued to enroll in online courses even after traditional face-to-face courses resumed at campuses across the country, due to the flexibility online learning provides. In these online courses, creating a sense of community can be a factor in ensuring a student’s success in the course. Through the principles of instructional design, administrators, faculty, and staff can create an environment in which online courses are just as engaging as traditional face-to-face courses and form an online community.
