Multiple Intelligences for Adult Literacy & Adult Education
This site discusses how to incorporate the Theory of Multiple Intelligence
into teaching basic skills and adult literacy. It gives ideas for assessment
and teaching tips to help you to develop learning strategies in terms
of the seven intelligences.
Certificates in General Education for Adults (CGEA)
This site encourages flexibility in teaching Adults and suggests ways
of teaching. There are tips for forming groups and interaction between
the tutor and the learner. Links: to CGEA Home page, and other resources.
This is Ted Panitz's Cooperative Learning and WAC web site.
includes Panitz's Cooperative Learning e-book. There is a lot of reading
to do on this particular subject. It is divided into eighteen sections.
There are other articles by Panitz on the same subject on this web site
as well. Panitz has an e-book about WAC on the site too (WAC = Writing
Across the Curriculum). The full book can be accessed but it is also
divided into specific sections that can be accessed individually. Overall,
there is a lot of information on this web site.
On-line Education Company
This is a commercial site. However, it features good course outlines.
There is also a "studying on-line" demo. This takes a minute or two
to download but it is full of details on how the course is designed
and shows how the student interacts throughout the course with quizzes
and various other novelties.
This informative site on Robert Gagne comes courtesy of San Jose State
University. The home page consists of a numbered list ranging from 1
to 8 charting Gagne's Events of Instruction. The links take a tour through
a short tutorial based on these. Further activities from the Instructional
Systems course are available by hyperlink, together with an overview
of the syllabus.
This site gives a broad overview of Mager's Criterion Referenced Instruction
with embedded links to other research papers on learning by Knowles
and Rogers. A good range of jumps leads through a corridor to various
other learning theories, such as Scandura's Structured Learning Theory.
The site is well referenced, with good links to related sites. There
is an abundance of valuable resources here.
Merrill was one of the pioneers of computer-based training (CBT). His
research on knowledge objects has been incorporated into many of the
tools used to develop CBT courseware. You can access many of his research
papers on this site. His main areas of research include:
- Knowledge objects
- Authoring systems
This site carries an interesting interview with Professor David Jonassen.
- How Jonassen
became involved in Instructional Technology
- His research
- What he considers
to be his two most interesting research papers
- People who influenced
- What future he
envisages for Instructional Technology
- Advice for beginners

on Bloom, this site is one of the most informative. You can download
a diagram representing Bloom's Taxonomy, with a brief description of
the theory. Links: there are very good links to sample questions and
also to other web sites dealing with Bloom. Information is clearly presented
and links are distinct and logical.
Walter Dick is a major theorist on systematic design of instruction.
You can take a tour through his course modules at Florida State University
on this site, for example: ·
- Performance systems
John Keller is a leading expert on motivation in instructional design.
He also teaches at Florida State University. Keller's homepage contains
just a photograph, with contact information and two links at the bottom
of the screen. One or two clicks away from this and Keller opens up
the entire overview of his instructional system, the ARCS model.
This is a military site which is low on friendliness but high on content.
The aim of this site is "to review and synthesize evidence from research
on instruction and learning." This site would be of interest to professionals
interested in theory and research. The navigation on the site is so-so
(rather ironic - this being the navy!). The site does have one major
fault, the text on the screen goes right the way across and is quite
small, making it difficult to read.
This link from Mike Collins' the site provides a full guide to creating
a training course on any subject. It goes through the whole process,
including Needs Analysis, Designing and Developing your course, Implementing
the Course and Evaluating students.
This Dept. of Energy (USA) site presents "Alternative Systematic Approaches
to Training". It consists of six main sections: General Guidance, Analysis,
Training Design, Training Development, Training Implementation, Training
Evaluation. There is also an Introduction, Conclusion and Appendices.
One Appendix in particular deals with the "Minimum Elements for a Systematic
Approach to Training."
The subject of this web page is a course entitled "Microcomputer Applications
for Education and Training", which is offered by Purdue University in
the USA. There are 112 course objectives in total. These are listed
under different headings such as: Introduction to Instructional technology,
Instructional Planning, Instructional Implementation, and Evaluation
and Management of Instructional Technology. Each section of objectives
is further divided into a set of Knowledge Objectives and Application
The different theories
of learning are contrasted in the Week One of the Lecture notes. All
of it is linked in with the use of computers in instructional design.
Week 15 of the lecture notes has interesting points to make about the
future of education and instructional design, with some discussion of
virtual reality, and resources for the future. There are links to the
lecture notes of each of the fifteen weeks of the course.
This is an Instructional Design resource site provided by the School
of Education at the University of Colorado at Denver. There are papers
available on it covering all aspects of Instructional Design. It is
basically an online library. It would not really be possible to give
a thorough review of this web site, as there is literally so much information
on it. Unfortunately a lot of the links are out of date ( Best Overall
Instructional Technology Web Site 1995). CHECK
The Australian Journal of Educational Technology publishes research
and review articles in educational technology, instructional design,
educational applications of computer technologies, educational telecommunications
and related areas. Published annually, this cyber-journal offers plenty
of articles on WBT and related areas. It includes back issues going
back to1985. Interesting if you would like to read about the development
of educational technology as it actually happened. However the site
is not the prettiest in the world.
This is an electronic discussion forum for people interested in Instructional
Design in a cyber environment (CBT/WBT). Described on a link as "probably
the electronic discussion forum for matters in this field", this site
serves as resource for people working in the field. Although some of
the site is still under construction the discussion forum is up and
running. John Keller has made a number of contributions to this site,
and so has David Merrill. Both are leaders in Instructional Design research.
You will find more information about them under the heading "Instructional
Design" on this list.
