The world is gradually transforming into a data-dependent system pool. Systems run on data, companies thrive on data, research is dependent on data and even your life is revolving around data. Data is in abundance. In order to focus on the ones enriching you, you need to self-design your data into content.
Content designers or instructional designers identify, filter, analyse and condition the data in such a way that it becomes easy to assimilate. But this is not the core of their role. The core is, to design, develop and micromanage the content in such a way that it is engaging and is in bite sized chunks that can be swiftly imbibed. Hence the term, Instructional Designing.
Sara McNeil defines: Instructional Design is the systematic development of instructional specifications using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction. It is the entire process of analysis of learning needs and goals and the development of a delivery system to meet those needs. It includes the development of instructional content, materials, and activities; and try out and evaluation of all instruction and learner activities.
Instructional Designers not only develop content, but they also design it using the right set of tools and take the quality a level up. Instructional design is the creation of learning experiences and materials during a manner that leads to the acquisition and application of data and skills.
Instructional Design (ID) may be to is a process or systematic approach to developing the varied learning courses or programs. Enough has been written about ID and its various theories and models that outline the varied approaches or strategies to
learning design. A new ID has got to figure this out from the ocean of data available. As an ID, one would expect the A to Z of the event process readily available on the web forums.
While there are a number of instructional design models and processes, many of their components are similar. They include analysis, design, development, and evaluation.

There is indeed a dearth of quality Instructional designers in the market. Instructional Designers are the invisible codes running in the background that incorporate and keep your agenda alive. In 2016, LinkedIn saw only 5000 openings for Instructional designers, but the number tripled by 2018 and is increasing with each passing quarter. A 28.3 percent increase of Instructional design roles and openings are going to be witnessed in the next decade which is something close to a million worldwide.
Full time Instructional Designers start right from a scale of 5.5-7 lakhs (which is 28% above national average) and the range can go to higher peaks as well. Instructional designers are needed in publishing houses, Training Centres, Education Centres, Learning and Development Departments, Advertising Companies, Service Providers for Corporate Communication roles, website, and much… much…. more.

As the business world continues to change, so do organizations and their learning functions. Flexibility, creativity, and innovation are becoming more valued. As a result, various models like agile, iterative design and many more are becoming more popular. Instructional designers are also borrowing more elements from the areas of User Experience (UX) Design and Design Thinking.
