Presents contributions to the 5th International Workshop of SIG 6 entitled 'Instructional Design' (a special interest group of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction, EARLI) held in Erfurt, Germany, June 27-29, 2002. Instructional design for multimedia learning is not only concerned with the cognitive and motivational aspects of the instructional process. It is also concerned with the methods and tools to support design activities, organizational aspects, context variables, problems of dissemination and implementation of new educational procedures, and finally, the many questions raised by the efforts to evaluate e-learning in all its variations.
