Instructional Design in Online Learning

Gutierrez(n.d.) mentioned, “An instructional design model is used to define the activities that will guide the development of eLearning projects. It allows you to communicate the purpose and reason behind a strategy”. Indeed, the primary goal of this course is to go through the stages of design, implementation, and usability of the developed instructional course. Referring to my innovation plan, I would like to create an instructional course that will cater to the success of my computer science classes by incorporating strategies such as blended learning, flipped classrooms, and project-based design. I can say that I have been designing my classes with the use of the mentioned strategies. In my previous course, I learned how vital the CSLE(Creating a significant learning environment) is in the class, and through that class, I learned how to create 3 Column Table and design my UbD template. In creating this assignment, I used the scope and sequence of the TEKS(Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills provided by TEA(Texas Education Agency). I create instructional design for Web Design and Development for High school students. In this link, you will find all the resources I used to construct my design, including the answer to the guided questions in our module 1 discussion. It will run in the same LMS(Learning Management System) I use in my school, Schoology. Although the class is about Web Design and Development, it can be a model for other teachers’ instructional design for incorporating blended learning, flipped classrooms, and project-based learning.

My instructional design is student-led, and I am there to facilitate. All materials will be available in the course, as it also caters 100% to virtual students. I use CBE(competency-based education) to master the contents, especially the software programs such as HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS(Cascading Style Sheets), and Microsoft Powerpoint. Still, the course is heavy on OBE(Outcome based learning) as we are more focused on students’ project-based assessments or projects for them to experience the actual hands-on. My design showcase COVA(Choice, ownership, and voice by authentic learning) methodology; with COVA methodology, I am guiding my students to deeper learning as they engage in hands-on or real-life skills learning. I also believe that I balance the Or/For/As assessment styles in my class as I continually assess my students through formal and informal assessments.

Moreover, I showcase feedforwards and surveys as a room for growth mindset. Please find my video as I explained the concepts of my course design. Here is a glimpse of my Web Development Course Design:
