Professionals involved in marketing – including those using the Social Media [SM] for that purpose -have a wide range of content to cover. It is frequently a problem for instructional designers of courses about marketing to pinpoint what are essential learning resources, and what are secondary, i.e. to make distinctions between essential, or core content, on the one hand, and additional or supplementary content. An important issue for the project was also how to collect sufficient appropriate content so as to generate relevant learning processes. In the iSimply project our e-course will be about such matters as factual data like marketing statistics, or skills needed for using the SM tools,, or activities that marketing professionals need to be able to engage in such as strategic planning. For instance, in SM marketing the following list shows the very wide range that our course could have covered.

1. SM strategy creation
