To harness information communications technologies (ICT) for adult e-learning, instructional designers and developers use a range of design tools to capture, analyze, document, and use critical information. Their design tools help them define the learning objectives, explore the learning domain, study embedded principles and values in the learning domain; define the projected learners and their needs (based on developmental levels, languages, cultural backgrounds, demographics, and others); define the specific project parameters (talent, timeline, resources, and budget); and identify suitable authoring tools and platform technologies. The culmination of the relevant information will optimally lead to a tailored pedagogical strategy and plan, and an effective development, alpha and beta testing, and deployment. This chapter defines the main tools used in instructional design—as a combination of methodologies and related technologies. Understanding these tools will help faculty and designers conceptualize instructional design more efficaciously and deploy the wide range of tools more strategically.
