This instructive piece recounts the work of renowned instructional design theorist, Robert Gagne. The article iterates Gagne’s sequence of nine key instructional events, together with the resulting mental processes being experienced by the learner. Helpfully, Kruse then offers an example of how to apply this theory into a reasonable expectation of practice in today’s technological order. While it does not focus on web 2.0 technologies (likely undiscovered at the time of writing), it does present creative ideas on how to develop more engaging digital learning content.
