Abstract: This paper explores the benefits of using the strategy of learner control (LC) in computer-based instruction (CBI), analyzes the evidence and conditions of its efficacy, and proposes a model for designing effective learner control activities for CBI. LC provides an opportunity to allow the student to construct his or her own learning and create a more meaningful learning experience. When conditions of prior knowledge and clear instruction on the learner’s role in the process are taken into consideration by the instructional designer, learner controlled activities are appropriate and beneficial in computer-based learning instruction and can be aligned with most theoretical approaches in instructional design.
