Instructional design usually begins with the specification of behavioural objectives or intended learning outcomes. The field of educational psychology has long been sensitive to the desirability of establishing learning objectives for instruction. Computer-processable learning objectives in the motor skill domain, however, seem to have remained the silent partner of objectives in both the cognitive and affective domains. This paper presents a conceptual model of learning objectives in the motor skill domain for the implementation of web-based training. The heart of this model is to treat athlete’s skill as a contextualized space of capability either actual or potential. Rowing is the sport chosen as a study source.
