  • The problem of this research was stated as “there is a need to revise Elgazzar (2002) ISD model to meet instructional development and developmental research on eLearning and distance learning innovations”. Developmental research method was implemented that included action research and case studies to report revisions of the Elgazzar (2002) ISD model to reach the new revised ISD model. Participants were (8) PhD students used the 2002 model under the author supervision (7 of them completed their theses). An open questions Questionnaire was given to participants to report revisions needed while applying Elgazzar (2002) in their development of eLearning environments on the Learning Management Systems (LMS). The author put the commonly changes and developed a prototype ISD model. The final ISD model was refereed by two Associate Professors specialized in Educational Technology: eLearning and Instructional Design from the Program of Distance Teaching and Training, Arabian Gulf University. The research has resulted in a third re- vised Elgazzar (2013) ISD model for developing eLearning and distance learning environments. The research includes Figures, References, and recommendations.
