Instructional Design: Databases

This guide highlights instructional design resources available to the AU community


The databases in this page provide the citation, abstract, and in some cases, the full text of journal and magazine articles, books, and dissertations. They are sorted by order of prominence and then alphabetically. 

Use only articles from scholarly journals for literature reviews, not those from newspapers or magazines or technical reports.
