Online learning provides a myriad of opportunities for students. With the exponential growth rate of online learning and the benefits that effectively designed courses provide, there is a need for instructional designers trained in distance education technologies and design. Instructional designers will be able to create and maintain online courses that facilitate an outstanding learning experience. It is important for teachers and administrators to realize the value of instructional designers in creating these experiences. While online learning provides benefits to students, it brings with it many challenges. With the number of students that take online courses, a “one-size-fits-all” approach is not efficient. It is clear that an instructional designer is needed to create the goals, delivery, and structure of the online learning in order for the online course to be successful. Instructional designers will improve training, design, delivery, and implementation of online courses.
