ISD From the Ground Up by Chuck Hodell provides the basics of good instructional system design (ISD), including practical ways to apply ISD principles. The book presents instructional design as a system that is dynamic enough to work with any set of variables regardless of the particulars. Just as any new building project demands a blueprint to be successful, any effort to design an instructional course needs ISD to be successful. The process of designing an instructional program goes beyond delivering the training. The basic structural model of ISD includes phases of analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. Though it might look easy to the uninitiated, ISD is a complex set of skills that must be mastered.
