This is the last assignment for my EDU652:Instructional Design & Delivery Class.  This episode is about Topics.  The writer has learned that an instructional design and delivery topic is a learning object with a title and content (Horton, 2013).  It is short enough to be specific to a single subject or answer a single question, but long enough to make sense on its own and be authored as a unit.  A topic is the basic unit of authoring and of reuse (Horton, 2012).  A document may contain one topic or multiple topics, and a document type may support authoring one or many kinds of topics (Horton, 2012).  However, regardless of where they occur, all topics have the same basic structure and capabilities.  Books, PDF files, Websites, and help sets, for example, can all be constructed from the same set of underlying topic content, although there may be some topics that can only be delivered one way(oasisopen.org, 2005).

I just want to thank Dr. Deb Moerland for being such an awesome instructor.  Dr. Moerland you've been a real blessing.  I hope we cross paths again!
