The world is in a constant state of flux. As organic beings with synaptic nerves and built-in systems for receiving and responding to outward stimuli, we are constantly taking in information, processing, and learning from it. Education is the formalization and institutionalization of this natural occurrence to ensure that we have basic knowledge necessary to function as a civilized and engaged society, and we keep our workplaces moving smoothly. Instructional design is a formalized process for crafting education, whether we are designing formal classroom training or informal, self-directed education. Instructional designers package education in different and unconventional ways to meet differing needs.
