Open University Malaysia (OUM) is an open and distance learning (ODL) institution; adopting the hybrid learning pedagogy. It provides a flexible, learner friendly, and accessible approach to online learning to ensure that learners can study from anywhere, and at any time. Learners engage in self-learning most of the time. As a pioneer of ODL education, OUM responds to quality learning materials by leveraging Internet-based technology in order to support the learning process in an ODL setting. Main objectives: This study aims to obtain (i) students’ perceptions and actual usage of learning materials, learning modules in particular, and (ii) the importance of instructional design in learning materials satisfaction. Through this study, OUM will be able to obtain feedback from learners of the instructional design elements implemented in the modules. Methodologies: The basic design of data for this research paper was gathered from exploratory and survey questionnaires. The questionnaires were distributed to the learners via Google Forms in OUM’s learning management system (LMS) known as myINSPIRE. Feedback from learners in various programmes and learning centres were collected via online surveys for three semesters in the year 2019 (January, May, and September). Results: The findings show that from 969 learners for the January, May, and September 2019 semesters, OUM learners are very satisfied with their modules. The results of this study would be able to provide some insights to OUM on the quality of learning modules from the instructional design perspective. The study certainly benefits the university in taking action to improve the quality of modules focused on instructional design elements. Recommendation: Currently, the survey is focusing only on modules. In the future, we aim to conduct a more extensive survey to measure the learners’ satisfaction with our other learning materials, namely, interactive web-based materials and video lectures.
