AbstractThis article posits that developing cognitive tools for use in a guided learning space is complex. Cognitive tools can be viewed as compound structures with multiple roles of entities, such as media, content, context, peers, etc. The interactive and dynamic nature of cognitive tools imposes difficulty on the design and development of cognitive tools. Therefore, an equally complex design and development entity is required to match the same level of complexity of cognitive tools in order to facilitate the creation of these learning tools. Instructional system design is complex enough to address complexity issues associated with developing cognitive tools.
