A hybrid instructional design model for web-based database course delivery

International Journal of Information and Operations Management Education (IJIOME), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2005

Abstract: Many learning theories have been studied and developed for the lecture-based courses. Among these theories, objectivist and constructivist instructional designs are among most widely applied. In this paper, we show that neither of these two theories alone is suitable to design an online database course. We present a hybrid model consisting of both instructional design models that compliment each other and form an adequate framework for designing web-based database courses. Our model is further augmented by a simulation module to demonstrate how it can be utilised in learning database concepts more effectively. Furthermore, we discuss in detail and make recommendations for different components of each module and how they can be applied for an effective course design and delivery to achieve a high learning outcome.
