This group is the freeform type of development where you most probably start with a blank slate and then build your course interface content and interactivity which results in a long and expensive development time-frame.
Here the development consists of template or form-based authoring where the course has a pre-designed template structure and the instructional designer and developer only needs to add content text, narration and multimedia and results in a much-shortened development time-frame.
