Digital technologies are currently exploding on the Internet that will impact learning. This paper presents a view that digital media and communication technologies on the Web 2.0 can be used to support a constructivist environment in online learning. Human interaction is paramount in online learning, therefore blending instructional design strategies to create engaging, real-world learning activities with digital media and social communication software, all freely available on the Internet, engaging learners in social interaction, allow knowledge construction, and provide opportunities for collaboration and new ways to work. This approach presents a different, if not better, learning experience online than through the traditional classroom or face-to-face meetings. Based upon theory, we explore instructional design, Web 2.0 technologies, project-based learning, and propose strategies for online course development blended with digital media and a 'modular' instructional design
