Instructional System Design Manual — A complete guide to ISD or the ADDIE method (analysis, design, develop, implement or delivery, & evaluation).
Instructional Design Framework — A framework for designing learning environments.
Agile Design: An Ethos for Creating Learning Platforms — Rapid instructional design for agile, blended learning.

Instructional Design — Includes difference between ISD (Instructional System Design) and ID (Instructional Design).

- A Time Capsule of Training and Learning
- ISD Timeline — The growth of the ISD
- ADDIE Timeline — The growth of the ADDIE model

The human mind is so complex and things are so tangled up with each other that, to explain a blade of straw, one would have to take to pieces an entire universe. . . A definition is a sack of flour compressed into a thimble. — Rèmy de Gourmont in Glory and the Idea of Immortality
On Knowledge Jump
Students do not learn much just sitting in classes listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write reflectively about it, relate it to past experiences, and apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves. — Arthur W. Chickering & Stephen C. Ehrmann
