Automated ID will only come after we have routine and easy access to artificial intelligence; ID is not just following a model or a recipe, it is the application of complex theory to resolve real problems and as difficult to automate as heart surgery Apr 10th 2001 03:50:13 PM
Instructional design is a "thinking" process. Humans must use a creative process to produce a product that will present relevant material in a relevant manner. Over the years we have seem many tools help the author/designer to create education Apr 10th 2001 11:27:19 AM
my first response was "it never will" but then I thought that is such a non-open mind response. I read the question again and decided that it WILL become viable and widely used, not to mean that it will be better than individually done. Apr 10th 2001 10:40:30 AM
