Interactive learning as an "emerging" technology: A reassessment of interactive and instructional design strategies
AbstractThis paper challenges the assumptions and accepted practices used in the design and development of interactive learning resources. Through an assessment of accepted assumptions and the pitfalls inherent in instructional design it is debated whether technology can effectively replicate the adaptability and flexibility of human communication. It is proposed that interactive technology is only now emerging as a viable alternative, requiring not only a new approach to the presentation of interactive materials but also an integrated methodology which is relevant to the tools and practices of today.
