ETAP 623 Spring 2017


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 goals of this wiki site is to provide an open space for co-developing public knowledge--collective educational know-how--in the service of continual teacher learning, improvement, and innovation. When you contribute to this open space, please realize that any page you create here will be instantly accessible to other authors and visitors (if they search/open your page). If you have any concern about this openness or want to prevent your work from being publicly visited, please contact Dr. Jianwei Zhang at jzhang1(at) to negotiate a special setting or remove your pages from this site after your class is completed.

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

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:
