SUPPORTING INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN IN FORMAL LEARNING - A Knowledge Management System for Planning, Implementing and Evaluating Courses in Traditional Classrooms

Eleni Fatourou

Abstract

Instructional Design is not an exact science, especially in a traditional classroom context. Teachers plan, perform and evaluate their lessons in an ad-hoc manner. Their decisions, however, share a common basis, which includes but is not limited to didactic methodologies, past courses experience, students' characteristics and prior knowledge, available material and time, goals to be achieved and expectations to be fulfilled. All this information is fragmented in various and heterogeneous material, ranging from tests and evaluation reports to classroom management software and administration documents. It is proposed to apply ADDIE Instructional Design Model to the context of formal learning. Based on the processes identified by ADDIE, a knowledge management system is designed to enable assessment of the past decisions and facilitate the forthcoming.
