Easy.

**Effective in terms of ****learner outcomes and Moodle:** Successful in demonstrating the intended learner outcomes in a Moodle based learning environment.

Of course, this definition, just like most other definitions, is not very helpful without further definitions. For instance, we cannot assume that 'learner outcome' is well defined so we need an opertional definition for it as well. And the further we define, we are likely to end up with a circular definition.

Here is another try.

**Effective in terms of ****learner outcomes and Moodle:** With learner outcomes and Moodle the score after is higher than the score before.

We need much more of course but this can at least give a better sense of what we will need to do, that is, measure something and compare.

Hello Itamar,

yes. Additionally I think user experience whether goal-directed or not is also very important. How the learner is asked to engage with Moodle; engagement meaning look and find static stuff/interact with tools, so the processes involved I think are important. This all links with usability/accessibility and ownership of the learning process for outcomes.....including ILOs and peripheral stuff.

cheers,
