By: Velocedge  09-12-2011

Participants may either (1) bring a topic and technical materials with them for approximately 10-15 minutes worth of lesson, or 2) select a topic from ones provided to them by the instructor.  Laptop computers with PowerPoint are recommended.

Participants will learn to:

  • Develop a plan for an IDL course.
  • Understand the difference between an IDL and face-to-face classroom.
  • Understand the limitations, functions, responsibilities and techniques for IDL instructors.
  • Be able to use effective IDL questioning techniques.
  • Understand the role of interaction in an IDL course, and be able to create interactivity.
  • Understand the media differences between computers, face-to-face classrooms, and television, and how to use media effectively for IDL.

Participants Will Leave With:

  • IDL Instructional Design & Delivery Handbook
  • Instructional Design & Delivery Checklists
  • Sample Instructor's Guide
  • Sample Student Manual
  • Workshop course materials
  • Certificate of Achievement

Organizations are encouraged to send teams of instructors and instructional designers.  The workshop is designed to accommodate from 6 to 16 participants.

Student Requirements

As a workshop participant you will be required to bring the following materials with you in order to create and deliver an IDL presentation.

  • Approximately 15 minutes of course material of your choice
  • Laptop Computer with PowerPoint
  • Blank Diskette
  • Good sense of humor..

As part of the workshop, each student will convert the course material they brought into an IDL presentation and deliver it using the broadcast studio equipment.  Students who don't have a laptop computer will be able to use the instructor's computer of one of the other participant's PCs.


The workshops are typically held at a client's site, utilizing their IDL equipment so the participants get as close to a "real life" example of what its like to design and deliver an IDL course.  

The workshops are generally designed to take 1 and 1/2 days.  This time is dependent on the number of participants in the workshop.  The workshop can be modified to fit the needs of the client, ie. focus more on IDL presentation or design, adjust time for participant size.  Below is an overview of the typical contents of the workshop
