About this blog
I started this blog to reflect some ideas about instructional design and e-learning while working in research projects and writing my dissertation. I noticed that the information I post here becomes more meaningful to me and it so aids my learning process. I do not intend to just blog in the "traditional" sense (refering to interesting and related matters on the Internet), but also to cite books and articles. This also gives me the chance to cite and reflect on "older" materials (pre-1996 ). Last but not least, this blog may give some English-speaking fellows the chance to get a glimpse of the German literature, since I do my best to translate ideas in German publications into English.
