This book was for a graduate course I took on instructional design. It was an incredibly boring read. I thought the information seemed out-dated as compared to other materials I have read for other courses. I wouldn't buy it just for myself.

Considering that I didn't like the class I had to use this book for, I found it a great book. It's full of good information and facts that are useful for instructional design. I recommend it to other instructional design majors.

Because Robert Gagne was referenced so often in the text book I am using I felt it necessary to understand his principles of instructional design. The purchase of this book was definitely worth the money.

I first read this book when I was an instructional design student in 1972. Gagne and Briggs' definitions of types of learning and of learning processes are ageless. Even in the era of constructivist ID, this book contributes an important bridge between fundamentals of psychology and the structuring of learning experiences and environments. Where would I be today without 'reverse chaining'? Probably at the end of my leash!

This is a nice hardcover book and I really like the layout. Content is as interesting as Instructional Design can be, but in all seriousness its one of the better books I've used for my graduate program.

Instructional design theory isn't new and this revision of the text doesn't change that. It is a good review but is not as current with new technology as I would have liked. The ADDIE model is a standard and while the text does explain the process, there is much more current information on the model and, in some cases, better explanation available on the internet.

Teachers should read this very helpful book. It helps understand what is expected of lesson outcomes and designing instruction is easier with standards as well.
