  • Najib Asmaty
    Najib Asmaty Afghanistan A very good short course designed for the people who want to know what is "Instructional System Design". Since it is an introductory you have to go back and do some more research on major topics like Kolb's cyclic learning module, adult learning theories, and Gagne's 9 events of instruction. Overall I will give 4/5 to the course. 2015-08-19 13:08:34
