Efforts in the area of designing e-learning courses are concentrated in developing standards and specifications to govern the process. Proportional efforts need to be directed towards embedding instructional elements in the design of e-learning courses. Towards this direction an instructional strategy for designing and structuring e-learning courses appropriate for adults is proposed that is not related to any technical implementations. The strategy is based on Cisco's reusable learning object strategy and embeds several other instructional elements to provide a way of designing instructionally sound and quality e-learning courses. The strategy can be applied in workplace e-learning design and provide guidelines for instructional designers on how to prepare and design the content and context of their instruction. The strategy was applied in a project (TrainSEE) that developed e-learning courses.
