Summary

The chapter offers three brief examples of how the most important guidelines might be applied in e-learning courses. Two of the samples reflect a directive architecture for teaching Excel skills-one asynchronous and the other synchronous. The third sample is a simulation based on a guided discovery architecture designed to give automotive technicians practice in troubleshooting. Instead of a rating system, the chapter offers these guidelines as a checklist of research-based features an individual should consider in his/her e-learning design and selection decisions.
