Review of Web Collage and e-Design Template representations

Web Collage is the first representation I looked at and I was really impressed. It is very visual; you can see the entire course layout at a glance. It is lacking in a little bit of detail and a third party would have difficulty understanding everything. Detail does have to be included elsewhere and as the description states, Collage can be used with Moodle. After a quick Google search I found a 3 minute YouTube video on how Collage leads into the actual course creation on Moodle: http://youtu.be/0C_AVMQ51Q8. So I guess that could take care of the detail. And as the design work on Collage is utilised on Moodle, I think this gives the teacher extra incentive to spend more time on design as they know that it will save them time later on in Moodle. A good product.

e-Design Template

I found e-Design far easier to understand at first glance than Collage. However, that may be because my own learning preference is more text-based that visual. There is a nice overall diagram at the top but what I really like is the old-fashioned table with the steps clearly laid out. Some simple colour coding of text also helps readability.

 

Discussion

If I had a design job to do quickly I would probably use e-Design, it’s so simple and clear. But if I was designing many courses I think I would like to look more at Collage especially in order to subsequently manage my course on Moodle.
