Our Instructional Design Process​

​​During each engagement, SilkWeb contributes the appropriate critical elements of Instructional Design Technology such as: ADDIE and ASSURE (ISD models for print and online curriculum), to ensure that the program’s charter is satisfied. SilkWeb also bases its success on the application of the correct balance of Project and Design Methodology/Subject Matter Expertise and an unquestionable strength in the practice and integration of learning solutions into the client’s institution.


Development Methodology

Each learning solution is developed in-house by our instructional designers, subject matter experts and professional course writers. Sound instructional design forms the foundation for learning courses. 
 
Each course begins and ends with input from subject matter experts who provide the critical path for curriculum development. Courses are constructed on a foundation that includes Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education Objectives. 
Each online course is designed to use engagement and interaction to target different learning styles and multiple intelligences. Special attention is given to several standards of Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, all SilkWeb online courses are SCORM compliant, which enables web-based learning systems to find, import, share, reuse, and export learning content in a standardized manner.​

Original Content
The choice is up to you when it comes to content selection. Re-purpose your existing materials and SilkWeb will provide you with a detailed story board so you can review the content prior to production.
