Analysis of an instructional design: a case study

This project applies human factor principles and techniques to the analysis of the contemporary instructional design process. The major steps in the analysis included: (1) the definition of instructional design and the role of the instructional design professional; (2) a description of the crucial intersections between instructional design and human factors and a critical evaluation of how typical instructional design models apply human factors principles; (3) the conduct of a case study evaluation with original data collection to illustrate the instructional design process and the evaluation model that the analysis proposes; and (4) a summary of the current state of the art with recommendations for future research and development needed to advance the incorporation of human factors standards and user experience design criteria toward the instructional design industry.
