MOOC Design Session Graphic Whether you use ADDIE, backwards design, or another model, instructional design relies on a process that results in key deliverables: a project timeline, learning objectives, delivery methods, an assessment strategy, and more. So what happens when you apply a traditional instructional design model to a disruptive technology like a MOOC? In this session, we will look at the variables introduced by MOOCs that complicate the design process, and strategies to address those challenges.
