Abstract

The purpose of this study is to learn from the practitioners the roles and responsibilities of an instructional designer in developing new media enhanced instructional materials. We are particularly interested in the challenges designers are facing and how they handle these challenges. Our guiding research questions were: 1). What are instructional designers' responsibilities in the field of new media? 2). What challenges do instructional designers face? 3). How do instructional designers meet these challenges? 4). What skills are important for being a good instructional designer? We conducted extensive interviews with practicing designers. The results are reported as a response to each of the four research questions. We hope the findings will provide useful and practical information to students who are about to take on the responsibilities of an instructional designer.
