Topic: Instructional Design (ID) is a powerful development process, and it is an approach that helps e-learning developers, trainers, and instructional designers create effective and efficient learning experiences for learners of all ages (LaMotte, 2018). Instructional design is a procedural understanding, framing how the training department works through the process of analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. However, there are innumerable instructional design models, reflecting that different team's design in different ways; this is not a positive thing or a negative thing, it is just a "thing". Laying out the instructional design process within the training department supports an understanding of the training department efforts as well as the individual processes associated with the desired outcomes. Within each training department, the methods are significantly different and should be documented; the ability to design and work within a specific organization's instructional design framework can prove to be invaluable to its bottom line.
