Designing online courses requires a radical change in the way instruction is presented to students. However, there are no research-based models using a systems approach available for designing Web-based instruction. This book introduces the ASSIST-Me Model to fulfill this need. ASSIST-Me, based on a recent Delphi study, offers an instructional design procedure specifically intended for online courses. Data obtained from professional instructional designers were synthesized into a model that contains essential elements to the design process, and Koontz, Li, and Compora present a step-by-step procedure to effectively create online instruction. The ASSIST-ME Model: * Allows maximum flexibility when creating effective instruction, permitting the instructor to develop materials in order of preference; * Eliminates the trial-and-error approach; * Reduces the amount of design time once the model has been used; * Increases student learning in a reasonable time. This book should be used by faculty who teach instructional design courses, professional instructional designers, and teacher faculty who design instruction for online courses.
