The DPD was developed as an infrastructure for educational technology designers to publish, connect, discuss and review design ideas. The DPD is designed to bridge research and design in a communicable and systematic manner. It also has the potential of enabling designers to build on the successes and failures of others rather than reinventing solutions that others have struggled to develop. This paper illustrates how the DPD can be used: a) as a tool for synthesizing design knowledge, b) as a methodological support for design-based research, c) as a guide for designing new technologies, and d) as an infrastructure to support novice educational technology designers.
