Abstract

This paper presents a model for creating user-centered educational and informational Web sites. Information design is the process of developing effective pieces of written or visual communication. While good information design stresses the importance of communication that clearly communicates an intended meaning, user-centered information design places primary emphasis on addressing the cognitive needs of the intended audience. Distance education via the World Wide Web is becoming an increasingly popular form of instructional delivery. Because Web courses are often developed by teams of designers, a methodology for the collaborative development of educational Web sites can be a valuable tool for improving instructional effectiveness. This paper presents such a methodology and suggests areas of research to investigate the application of principles of user-centered information design to the development of effective instructional systems.
