This study aims at presenting a model of integrating instructional design represented by an instructional program into one of the most current electronic learning environment called (Moodle). The study will also measure the effect of this design on the achievement of university students. The participants of the study were 60 female and male students from the department of Educational Technology at the College of Education, University of Bahrain, during the academic year (2010-2009). This sample was divided into two groups: control group and experimental group. The control group was taught through the traditional (Moodle) environment, whereby the teaching materials were presented in texts. On the other hand, the experimental group was exposed to the teaching materials also through (moodle), but package was specially designed with graphics and motion. The two groups were given pre- and post-tests. The results of the two tests showed that there is a statistically significant difference between the two groups in the post-test in favor of the use of the learning package through (Moodle). The study recommends the integration of learning programs such learning packages, learning websites, films, and all the programs based on instructional design into instructional environments such as (Moodle) in order to enrich the learning environment and diversify the learning resources. The study also recommends that this approach should be used in both universities and schools.
