While working in the IST Solutions Institute at Penn State a small group of us collaborated to publish a chapter focusing on the approach we created to support the design, development, and delivery of eLearning materials. This chapter appeared in the book, Pushing the Digital Frontier edited by Nirmal Pal and Judith Ray. While it is focused on work done in the late 1990s it is still a relevant framework today.
