Now that you have completed the design for your course, the next step in the process is to curate and create instructional materials.

Team Composition

Depending on the project budget, you may be creating all the materials yourself or you may be creating only a portion of the materials. In addition, if you are working on a team, the instructional designer is often the project manager, responsible for bringing all the pieces together.

In addition to the lead instructional designer, a team might include:

  • Graphic designers
  • Subject matter experts
  • Videographers
  • eLearning developers
  • Voice talent
  • Project manager

Course Materials

There are a variety of different types of tools required, depending on the type of course you are providing.

Examples of course materials may include:

  • Syllabus
  • Instructional media (e.g. videos, eLearning modules, infographics)
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Student guides
  • Instructor guides
  • Learner assessments
  • Evaluation instruments
  • Required equipment list
