HEINSFELD, Bruna Damiana de Sá Sólon  and  PENA, Ana Lucia. Instructional design and the printed teaching material for distance education: a brief overview. Rev. Bras. Estud. Pedagog. [online]. 2017, vol.98, n.250, pp.783-804. ISSN 0034-7183.

In Brazilian distance education, printed teaching materials are one of the primary media used in the teaching-learning process. However, they are also one of the worst-rated pedagogical mechanisms in students’ evaluations. Hence, the development of these materials is analyzed, based in the study of a corpus, through the nuances of the instructional design and its components: learning objectives, thematic sections, activities, language and images. To confirm the analysis, a structured questionnaire was used to gather students’ impressions on the material, in view of the aforementioned components. As theoretical basis on instructional design, it was employed the views of Barreto et al. (2007), Barreto (2012), Filatro (2009), Filatro and Cairo (2015) and Preti (2010). In conclusion, although the analyzed material requires adjustments to match the most recent studies, the selected corpus proved satisfactory with respect to the learning experience.
