Designing Learning Tools — Introduction to Some Methodological Thoughts

Teemu Leinonen, EdSurge, May 29, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Alex Hayes asked for my comments on this post following my digital research methodologies talk. Here's what I said about it back in 2010. My response today: I think that what's important here is to understand that the design theories are nothing more than abstractions of the actual process, that they are most useful as descriptions of what was done, as opposed to prescriptions of what should be done, that the design methodologies represent a palatte of possible approaches, and that (as the second principle states) "designers should aim and accept that design is often based on informed guessing."
