I developed an online course to teach the basics of instructional design to academics who could not attend the face to face workshops. I used ThingLink to make one infographic interactive which acted as an introduction to all the aspects that influence instructional design.
Blackboard Learn LMS is sophisticated but attention to flow and instructions is still important. I tried to model the course using Gagne’s 9 events as a template guide.
The events that were used were listed in in section of the course in blue blocks to make learners conscious of how and where each one fits
One of the limitations of Blackboard Learn is that in order to contain text within narrow margins so that the content is easy to read it is necessary to use tables. However using the % width feature in the Editor tool, the tables do respond to screen size .
