Introduction to ID Selection Method
Instructional design (ID) also known as Instructional System Design (ISD) is the art and science of creating an instructional environment and materials that will bring the learner from the state of not being able to accomplish certain tasks to the state of being able to accomplish those tasks. Instructional systems design combines knowledge of educational theory and practice with appropriate technologies to enable learning. It involves choosing appropriate technologies and designing interactions that promote effective and efficient knowledge transfer. The effectiveness of any instructional material depends also upon an appropriate planning, hence the instruction has to be planned if it is to be effective and designed in some systematic way.
