Presentation Wizards and You: An Instructional Design Case Study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article presents a “messy” case study designed for intermediate and advanced students or trainees in instructional design courses. In the case study, a video production company has just hired the student as its first instructional designer to help the company position itself in the interactive video training market. The case study is presented in several scenarios. The initial scenario sets the stage, de scribing the video company and its first interactive video project. This is followed by a set of decisions the student designer must make. The subsequent scenarios add a set of complicated “realworld” constraints to the project, and are again followed by sets of decision questions for the student. The case study includes directions for the instructor, a set of enrichment questions, and a bibliography.
