Abstract

This chapter argues that the principal role of instructional design is to represent and advocate the needs of learners. It stresses the importance of needs analysis and requirements gathering in instructional design. As a case study to support these contentions, the chapter describes the instructional design of custom-built e-learning for adult learners working in the factory of a manufacturing plant. The case study reveals that the true value of instructional design lies in a learner-centered approach that prioritizes ease of use and facilitates learner control.
