The main point to accept here is that ‘things’ out of context are hard to evaluate.
We need to plan to evaluate a complex configuration of things and processes.
Their main conclusions from the review are that more attention must be paid to evaluating groupware systems and that there is room for additional evaluation techniques that are simple and low in cost.
(Herring, 2004, p33)
No “novel effect” anymore! We need to examine what works and what does not in a complex e-learning environment with relation to the high order learning outcomes
The most important part of a sucessfull design is the underlying conceptual model.
The hard part of design: formulating an appropriate conceptual model and then assuring that everything else be consistent with it.
