ETAP 623 Spring 2023 (Zhang)

ID for productive learning

The ETAP 623 class (offered online at will use this wiki space to work on our ID project. Each of you will create a mini-course, deploying your knowledge and skills learned about the principles and processes of instructional design. It is our goal to carry out authentic instructional design and development to produce mini-courses for real use, as Open Educational Resources (OER) for teacher learning, improvement, and innovation.

An important note: When you contribute to this open space, please realize that the pages you created (saved) here are accessible to your peers in your current class and future classes. Other visitors who use KNILT as an educational resource may also see your pages. Please exercise social media discretion about what you post. For example, your self-introduction may focus on your professional background, and should not disclose sensitive personal information.

If you have any concern about the openness involved or want to prevent your work from being publicly visited, please contact Dr. Jianwei Zhang at jzhang1(at) to negotiate a special setting during this project or request that your pages be removed from this site after your class is completed.

An Overview of the ID Project

The ID process

The ID project expects you to exercise the processes of instructional design as we study/read about each ID process in ETAP 623. The ID processes will be documented in your project portfolio page.

End Product

As your end product, you will produce a mini-course for teacher learning, with teachers as your target learner/audience. Use the Mini-Course front page template to organize your mini-course with navigation links to the units. You can see a set of example mini-courses featured at KNILT Home.

  • 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"
  • It is always a good idea to first draft your text in a word processing package and then save it outside of the wiki. Back-ups are always handy to have!
