Abstract: The past decade has brought about a rapid growth of distance education (DE) courses and programs; this is particularly evident in the field of health education and promotion. This article provides an overview of strategies utilized in designing DE courses and programs. The process of designing DE courses, called Instructional Systems Design (ISD), mirrors the process used by health educators and promoters in their everyday practice. The authors take the reader through each step of the ISD, as it relates to the health education process, and provides additional resources for DE course and program development for interested readers.
