This project intended to build a platform for Instructional Designers (IDs) to analyse the content and document their inputs on the content analysis. The purpose of the system is to aid IDs in the process of content design and produce an efficient design plan for learning objects using technology, in this case Learning Object Design System (LODS). LODS is a system where the instructional designer record the findings from content analysis (learning outcome, scope of content, cognitive level of content, content structure, summary) as well as learning design attributes for the particular learning object (instructional approach, content presentation method, learning activities, assessment method). The system was initiated due to the absence of standardised procedures in the beginning phase of the learning object design which is content design. This is a case study involving interviews with experts and literature reviews to derive the attributes for the content analysis process. A set of guidelines was developed which highlighted the steps in analysing the content. These guidelines were then transformed into a Learning Object Design System (LODS). LODS enable the IDs to record, save, retrieve and print their input on the content analysis findings. The LODS is expected to aid the IDs in the decision making process as it provides step-by-step template with options. The documentation will become as easy as filling in forms as they would be automatically formatted into one standard version. LODS is expected to speed up the content production and simplify the IDs’ current work process. For further research, it is recommended to make the LODS as collaborative platform between IDs and SMEs to enhance the quality of learning objects. (Abstract from authors)
