THis is where the designer would add stuff about learners, intended outcomes design approach etc.
Just trying this out.
Open questions & ideas:
- How does this link to the LD template in the Learning Design namespace? - Although I like the idea that the LD page is linked to the relevant content page node.
- Wayne, not sure i understand. can you clarify? Are you talking about the Design Guides (they do exist underneath the LearningDesign namespace. If that's what you're talking about i suppose i could modify the template to make it easy to insert the name of your Design Guide, so it would then link to that as well. I can also add an automated category to resources that are in the Design Guide category (if it exists yet?)... brent 02:58, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
- Perhaps I'm missing something here. OK lets assume I'm a learning designer, I can do the following:
- Start a learning design for a content development in the Learning Design name space by going here
- Add the Learning Design Boiler Plate - which is associated with a content page - but not in the learning design name space.
- There is a third aspect - the learning design resources which explain how all this works.
- How are the first two items above related to each other? --Mackiwg 22:20, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
- The LD Template is associated directly to content pages, prefererably the front page of a resource or it could also work on more granular page by page way, or sections, if need be. It is currently not associated with the LearningDesign: namespace. It can't really be associated with that namespace and probably shouldn't be because it is contextual on the actual contents that it applies to. The Design Guide on the other hand is ok in the Learning Design namespace because in a way that seperates it out from the content and corrals all the Design Guides into one place. The LD Template works a litte like this too in that it automatically applies a category and updates that category as the process of design is updated. I know the labels are a bit off at this point (you've suggested some more and I've got some ideas here) but by updating the template to Needs Specific LD, or LD Complete you also change the category. We will need to do some work around the Design Guide as far as instructions on how to link this to the content area itself, how to link back from your content area to the Design Guide. I could also put a way to have the LD Template have a way to check and see if a Design Guide exists under the same name as the content resource and display if it does. brent 23:32, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
- On the boiler plate itself - it would be good to link to the resource that explains how all this works.
- It sort of does in the top left, we just haven't really created a good page for it yet. It will mostly be just cutting a bit from the template page itself and getting Fiona to wrap her bit around my more technical stuff. brent 02:58, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
- OK - that makes sense --Mackiwg 22:20, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
- This may be difficult - but when a page like this is created for the first time - is it possible to embed a template with links to the relevant resources? This way the user will not need to go back to the parent page to find the links.
- I don't think so, not unless we can use something like the same extension used for the Design Guides... i'll take a closer look at this. brent 02:58, 20 May 2007 (CEST)
