Excellent article explaining why online courses need instructional design strategy – even if there is no access to an instructional designer.   This is the first of a four part piece on Online Learning Insights, and it is a really good overview of what ID is and why it is needed.  Quite interesting that so many instructors who have taught in face to face environments for years don’t know some of thee principles, which often should be applied in any environment (face to face or online.)
