Abstract:Radio communication is the same for all pilots as English is the language of aviation and the need to communicate clearly and effectively is a matter of safety. The process in which to mitigate the risk of miscommunication is an ongoing challenge in aviation.  The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop and evaluate an iMOOC (interactive Massive Open Online Course), which is intended to increase radio communication awareness and competency for pilots. The iMOOC design focused on integration of the theory of connectivism (Kopp, 2011), the strategy of Scenario- based e-learning (Clark & Mayer, 2012), and tools such the WordPress platform, which incorporated interactive features of LiveChat and social media. The study involved 10 participants ranging in age from 18 to 44. Data collected from tests and surveys were analyzed and reported using descriptive analysis. Improved test scores, increased radio communication awareness and positive participation responses indicated that selected theories, strategies, and tools were effective and applicable to the iMOOC development. Additional design concerns for future research are considered.
