6 Models for Designing Internet Courses Linear-designed instruction Subdivisions of the course are identified with each content area divided into modules. The modules are then divided into topics. Branched-designed instruction This model is similar to the linear design instruction model except assessments along the way may have a student go ahead and go back depending on the progress and understanding of the topics. Hypercontent-designed instruction The content for this model is divided into unites, modules, and topics, but the students are able to determine the order or sequence of topics. Learner-directed design The content is divided into units, modules, and topics with various learning experiences, but there is no order or sequence so students can determine the order of the topics to study.
