Designing online courses requires a radical change in the way instruction is presented to students. However, there are no research-based models using a systems approach available for designing Web-based instruction. Designing Effective Online Instruction: A Handbook for Web-Based Courses introduces the Assist-Me model to fill this need. Assist-Me, based on a recent Delphi study, offers an instructional design procedure specifically intended for online courses. Data obtained from professional instructional designers were synthesized into a model that contains essential elements to the design process, and Koontz, Li, and Compora present a step-by-step procedure to effectively create online instruction. The Assist-Me model: Allows maximum flexibility when creating effective instruction, permitting the instructor to develop materials in order of preference; Eliminates the trial-and-error approach; Reduces the amount of design time once the model has been used; Increases student learning in a reasonable time.
