The Programme Learning Outcomes (PLO) of this programme is to prepare graduates who are able to:

  1. To acquire conceptual knowledge and pragmatic skills of instructional design for use in contemporary educational settings. Students are guided to master the generic ADDIE model of instructional design based on three prominent sets of psychological principles of learning – behaviourism, cognitivism and social constructivism. These principles are the basis for the students to correlate elements and characteristics of best practices in contemporary instructional design. In practice, they are supported to design, develop, organise, conduct and validate online lessons.
  2. To acquire procedural and conditional knowledge of Technology-Based Learning (TBL) along with technical skills in selecting, using and managing proprietary or open-source tools and applications. In practice, students are guided to create a prototype application using suitable content authoring tools and creative media editors for a TBL practice. The usability of the tools and the TBL application are measured to assure quality instruction.
  3. To expose students to trends and issues in distance education by juxtaposing life cycle of various past and present instructional technology for distance education. This in turn would allow students to predict future trends and possible issues of education. The course supports students to analyse technical, economical and socio-political issues associated to distance education using a tool called Trends of Engineering System Evolution (TESE).
  4. To afford students to experience the roles and responsibilities of an online facilitator, while equipping the students with the art and science of storytelling skills. Through role-playing activities, students will explore the managerial role, pedagogical role, social role and technical role of an online facilitation with storytelling, accumulating conditional knowledge and pragmatic skills for professional practice. Once students are exposed to various types and genres of story, they will be guided to generate interesting story ideas, develop a story idea using the Hollywood Three-Act Structure, and align narrative events and learning events with intended learning outcomes for effective online facilitation.
