Rosie Earl's review of learning design models

The second model that appealed to me was the Design Principles Database model. Although I didn't fully get my head around it straight away, I really liked the concept of a design tool that allowed you to explore accessible features in a hands on way. I like to use lots on different media in my training and I felt this model helps the designer not only explore what is available, but give reasons why it is relevant and valuable.
I feel both of these methods would have been valuable to me when designing the e learning module I described in my previous cloud. The 4Ts model would have given me a solid base to explain to the Senior Managers, who were in experienced in e learning, what I was aiming for in the planning stage. The Design Principles Dadabase would have helped me to better articulate why I had chosen an e learning format, and would have helped me to be more creative with the limited technology to hand.
