This report discusses the design options incorporated in MODIA (a Method of Designing Instructional Alternatives), a system developed to help Air Training Command (ATC) plan technical courses. MODIA is a unique approach to planning that relates the use of training resources to the details of course design and operation. This report follows MODIA's design process and presents at each decision point pros and cons for each option as it affects training effectiveness and use of training resources. Although the report is directed to course planners in ATC, the options described are applicable in a wide variety of education and training settings. An overview of MODIA is given in R-1700.
