Like his best-selling book Designing Web-Based Training, this book is a comprehensive resource that provides practical guidance for making the thousand and one decisions needed to design effective e-learning.

E-Learning by Design includes a systematic, flexible, and rapid design process covering every phase of designing e-learning.?Free of academic jargon and confusing theory, this down-to-earth, hands-on book is filled with hundreds of real-world examples and case studies from dozens of fields.

It also helps readers select media, ensure reuse of content, specify learning objects, design the display, and make courses navigable. But wait, there's more! E-Learning by Design goes beyond traditional e-learning to include guidance on creating electronic job aids, virtual classroom activities, and mobile learning for PDAs and SmartPhones.

E-Learning by Design is jam-packed with best practices you can apply right away, using tools you already own.This is the guide trainers and educators need on their journey to creating successful e-learning programs.
