Task 2b


This paper takes a look at instructional designers and software architects, examining their respective roles and responsibilities as well as the context of the environment that each typically operates in. The extent to which instructional designers are seemingly rediscovering design and development team structures and methodologies, grounds already heavily covered in the computer science field is explored with the idea that instructional designers have much to gain from the computer science literature covering the architectural approach to software design, thus liberating instructional designers to relentlessly push the boundaries of learning theory and instructional design concepts.
