ETAP 623 Spring 2016

ID process

The ETAP 623 class will use this wiki as a primary tool to create mini-courses, deploying your knowledge and skills learned about the ID processes. (Note: If you prefer to use a different tool, such as Google Sites, to create your online mini-course, please discuss with the instructor.)

The ID Processes

  • The design project expects you to exercise the processes of instructional design as we study/read about each component/step of it in this course. The processes need to be documented in your project portfolio page.

Project Agenda

End Product

As your end product, you will produce a mini-course for teacher learning, such as Integrating_Metacognitive_Development_in_Mathematics_Instruction, with teachers as your target learner/audience;

Evaluation Criteria

  • This design process (portfolio) and end product (mini-course) will be evaluated based on the following Evaluation_criteria

General Suggestions and Feedback from the Instructor

  • Please see General Suggestions and Feedback
  • IMPORTANT! Name your wikipages and attached files using unique titles/filenames: This Wiki system will overwrite pages/files with the same name. So IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE NAME OUR WIKIPAGES USING UNIQUE TITLES. For example, instead of "unit 1" or "lesson 1" you should use "Unit 1: Specific Title..." Similarly, for your curriculum maps and other attached files, please also use unique filenames such as "ICM_your name.doc"
  • If you are trying to find useful videos (e.g., classroom episodes, educational videos) that can be embedded in your mini-course, you may find this site helpful:

Video Tutorials about Wiki Editing

Three-part wiki tutorial created by Deb:

A few additional tutorials created by a former instructor: (adding and uploading images) (creating new linked pages) (copying code from someone else’s page, creating headings and table of contents)


  • It is alway a good idea to first draft your text in a word processor and save it on your disk.
