This paper discusses the design and a prototype implementation of a content creation system, which enables instructional material development based on the Integrative Instruction Design Model for e-learning. It is the first phase towards creating an integrated environment that includes support for content creation in a systematic manner and also supports a learning centric environment for online learners. The integrative model also starts by decomposing the content into a graph of smaller units called as Learning Unit Classes (LUCs), which is a unit of knowledge to be learnt with a defined objective and an associated performance level. Such a system will facilitate the instructors in content development, which is an essential factor that can contribute to wider acceptance of online learning environments by the education community.
