CADMOS


Advantages – What makes this representation powerful?

  • Can be integrated with Moodle- but is this also a bit bad as it weakens the benefit of it being to use it with basic technical skills and understanding
  • Someone with basic technical skills or knowledge of learning design is able to use it
  • Visual notation – good for visual learners, also makes it easier to recognise and understand
  • Provides guidance – good for new people or for people who want to change their approach
  • Creates two modules – conceptual and flow model – 2 different views
  • Step design approach- which most staff currently adopt
  • Can add in metadata
  • Can edit models separately

Weaknesses- where is it lacking

  • Cannot correspond each activity more than one learning goal or prerequisite, so that link is lost within the tool
  • Read that once students had problems as it does not contain copy, paste and undo…but this may now be included 

Good for- how can it be used effectively

  • New staff or current staff with basic technical skills or knowledge of learning design so would be suited to a beginner member of staff. Or if someone wants to change their approach to learning design and planning
  • Can review in two different perspectives so allows for good evaluation and thus improvements

Less Good for- when would it not work?

  • Cannot correspond each activity more than one learning goal or prerequisite

Readability

  • Was easy to understand, and the visual element of it is really useful to easily identify areas.

Expressiveness and Utility

  • This tool would be able to express what I wanted to do but would have limitations as you cannot correspond each activity more than one learning goal or prerequisite, so that link is lost within the tool and wouldn't be able to fully represent what I planned to do.

E-Design


Advantages – What makes this representation powerful?

  • For both face-to-face and online environments, a short and long session …offers variety
  • Can be orientated around learning a tool or technology
  • Allows for formative feedback in the lesson
  • Interactions in lesson
  • Can be used by new staff and more expertise staff
  • Easy to use

Weaknesses- where is it lacking

  • Designed for tools within e-learning, so my be limited depending on the situation and participants

Good for- how can it be used effectively

  • E-learning, reviewing and sharing learning designs
  • Teaching about an e-learning tool
  • If the user wants feedback

Less Good for- when would it not work?

  • Dependent upon the situation- the model is created around e-learning so cannot be applied to all situations.

Readability

  • Was easy to understand, as I am a new user and it would be really benefitial to me being new within the E-learning field

Expressiveness and Utility

  • This tool would be able to express and facilitate what I aimed to do and as I was teaching about a tool,  this learning design is very appropriate. The benefits for this would be that being new in the field, the tool will allow me to extend my ability and to make sure that I have considered all areas, I will be able to clearly identify what I want to do and my aims and how I want to achieve feedback before I set to carry out the task.

Interesting comments on the E-Design representation. I didn't look at it in much detail, but from what you have written, I may take another look at it!
