I see good design (I assume pedagogical design) as one that:

  1. Motivate learners to participate; sustains learning
  2. Fulfills the desired outcomes of learning
  3. Takes up the affordances of technologies - adaptivity, surveilance, immediacy and more
  4. Scalable and reusable.
  5. Transforms learners' understanding of the content to be learnt.

So much for now. May I ask my E-learning students to join in Dr Grainne?

Of course Alfred would love to hear their thoughts. Good suggestions from you - motivation is so important.
