Definitions: ABCD Objectives

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I didn't want to link to this, but I did want to comment. However, blogger.com is once again down for the count (I converted my Blogger account to a Google account, which runs on beta.blogger.com - but the sad and sorry way the company is treating blogger.com customers should be a matter for company-wide embarrassment). What I was going to comment was that this short guide reads like it could come out of B.F. Skinner, and to question whether this was an appropriate foundation for the design of learning materials. I haven't harped on this, because it should be obvious, but it remains puzzling that so much of the instructional design community remains rooted in behaviorism - this more than 30 years after the theory was abandoned everywhere else.
