If you are going to make those instructions "as un-Moodle-centric as possible" [Matt] you move into a broader arena. There are many past discussions in such topics. Use the "advanced search" template which is only visible from the main "Using Moodle" page. Here is an example: "Online education: Some insightful lectures" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=226144.
Warning: Some people have waster precious minutes of their lives watching those videos. Go ahead at your own risk!
Here is a much shorter one: "Merrill on Instructional Design"
, which incidentally give poor marks to the current standard of telling (video) and dumping (MC).
