Abstract: Have you ever searched the internet before calling a doctor when you were not feeling well? There are hundreds of websites recommending stress reduction for overall health improvement. Meditation is a proven technique to reduce stress. Unfortunately, many adults feel they do not have enough time to meditate. The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop a Web page on and teach a webinar on the topic of meditation to change the way adults feel about stress reduction. The Facebook Page took into consideration the implications of using social media for learning and was in alignment with goals of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Techniques for teaching in the affective domain and Gagne’s “Nine Events for Instruction” were used to create the webinar. All 11 adult women participants reported immediate feelings of relaxation during the webinar and 45% of participants started practicing meditation to reduce stress after participating in the webinar. An implication for future research includes utilizing other asynchronous methods of instruction instead of a live webinar.
