The Learning Object Design Assistant

LODA is a reference tool for designers and writers of online learning and performance support materials, to help them select the right strategy to meet their particular objectives. Originally published in 2003, LODA collects together the hard-won experience and practical insights of some of the world’s most successful learning and information designers and structures them in an easy-to-use format that you can be using in minutes. LODA won’t write your content, but it will certainly ensure that you know how.

Learn how to design: procedures (how to do things); processes (how things work); concepts (types of things); structures and layouts; rules and principles; simulations; games; decision aids; case studies; drill and practice exercises; tests; questionnaires.

LODA provides detailed instructions for more than 40 types of learning and knowledge object, along with six comprehensive visual demos.
