Learning is the act of acquiring new, or reinforcing existing knowledge, characters, skills, and values, affecting a potential change of the learners towards nurturing creativity and innovation. The 21st-century learning framework from the 21st-Century Partnership, 2002 and the component of the Four-Dimensional Education written by Fadel, Bialik & Trilling 2015, have in common in the aspect of designing instructions for the implementation of the 21st-century learning. It is a challenge for the teachers to design the instruction in fulfilling the requirements. Thus, this concept paper introduces The Collaborative Instructional Design System (CIDS) 2017, developed as a solution towards the challenges. CIDS comprises of the Integral ASIE Instructional Design Model developed by Ismail, & Balakrishnan 2016 (the transformational ID Model), and special features on the Professional Learning Community (PLC). PLC is a 'global hub' for connecting teachers meeting with members of various communities around the world virtually that foster and build high-quality human capital for future prosperity. Information about the development and issues of job opportunities in the world and the successes and challenges faced by the industries especially relating to the Fourth Industrial Revolution - IR4.0, can create awareness which further motivates learners to commit themselves with confidence in pursuing their goals. CIDS is a constructive process in designing the instructions, which provides practitioners in education a valuable tool and perspective in enhancing the quality of instructions and training towards visualizing the 21st-century learning requirements for all learners. CIDS is accessible at https://asiemodel.net.
