This chapter introduces E²ML, the Educational Environment Modeling Language. E²ML is a lightweight visual language for instructional design; suitable both for complex instructional design processes and simple paper and pencil sketches. E²ML can be used for visualizing the intermediate and final results of design, thus providing documentation in a shared language that can enhance team communication, improve design and contribute to the development of high-quality instruction. The language and its features and applications are presented through a case study, evaluation results are briefly reported, and critical issues are discussed.
