My Experiences of evaluating learning design (Jane Nkosi )
An example of my experience in evaluating a learning design was when I evaluated a learning module for student teachers. The focus of the evaluation was on the interactivity of the product. I used the GesSCI framework for evaluation of content. This is a Likert-type evaluation instrument with a rating scale of 1-4
The following aspects of the design were evaluated:
- Quality and Comprehensiveness of Content
- Ease of use, Functionality, Navigation and Orientation
- Attractiveness of design and quality of Craftsmanship
- Appropriateness of content for intended purpose
- Value added through interactivity and multimedia
- Maintenance and support

The process involved evaluating the design with experts and prospective learners. The experts included content experts, material design experts and ICT expert. Learners were students in a similar programme with intended users of the design.
The experience was very enriching. It enabled me to stand back and look at the design with a fresh eye. I was able to improve the design by comments and views from the people who helped me evaluate the product.
