The purpose of this article is to provide a practitioner's description of applying empirical and theoretical informational technology constructs to online distance education. In this paper, we use the three-dimensional Information, Technology, and Instructional Design (ITD) Model presented by Liu and Velasquez-Bryant (2003), to analyze the effectiveness of implementing different modes of communication in an online distance education course. We discuss the use of the ITD model in designing both communication modalities and general course design for an online general psychology course. We also discuss the implementation of the Four Phases of Online Communication Design as a format for constructing various modes of communication in online distance education. Throughout this article implications, critiques, and suggestions for future instructors using these two theories are explained from the practitioner's perspective.
