eBlooms - A taxonomy for E-Learning design

As the field of instructional design continues to grow and encompass online course development, speed of development can sometimes overshadow proven processes. Scanning the field of available tools can provide much by way of technology and software, but little in terms of theory and practice. How can instructional designers better design online learning? Is there a quick way to align objectives with content and activities?

TEEX uses proven methods such as ADDIE and Bloom's Taxonomy  to create E-Learning in a systematic manner. The cycle of design and development begins with a needs analysis conducted by a program manager (PM) and project coordinator (PC). If the need is clearly established and an audience has been identified, a meeting is held to kick-off course design and includes a subject matter expert (SME), graphic artist (GA), and instructional designer (ID). In this meeting, the course goal is identified. It is this goal, or objective, that is broken down into appropriate chapters, or modules. Each module is given a terminal objective and supporting enabling objectives.

The attached White paper describes TEEX's methodology in more detail.

Printable Version of eBlooms Table?

I found this article quite interesting. I also liked the information in the dynamic (roll-over) table, but I'm wondering if I can get that info in a non-dynamic, printable form? (I downloaded the PDF, but that info doesn't seem to be in that white paper.)



Building Blocks of eLearning: Aligning Objectives

On July 22, 2009, ELC and DIR co-hosted a webinar on aligning objectives with engaging activities. The focal point for this presentation was eBlooms, and as always, it's only fair to share the slides and comments/notes used.
