Instructional Design Coordinator

An Instructional Design Coordinator is a person who is responsible for overseeing the implementation of instructional design techniques, usually in an academic setting or in corporate training.

Instructional design became popular in the 1930's, when the United States was developing new instructional techniques, as the need for rapidly training soldiers in a multitude of technical fields rose sharply during World War II. Since then, instructional designers have come up with new and innovative techniques to facilitate learning, using the most advanced technology available to them. Today, instructional design coordinators employ modern technology, such as the Internet, to implement the techniques developed by instructional designers and distribute them to students in a variety of settings.
