Contribution to ITDE
Clark developed the DVEP model. The DVEP model represents for Define, Visualize, Engage, and Package (Clark, 2005). The Define stage is the first and in it the designer is articulating the business goals and the knowledge skills needed to achieve them. Visualize method includes identifying visuals for topics. Engage requires the designer has to select the instructional methods required to achieve the stated learning objectives. Package, the final step in this initial stage is selecting the delivery media that best deliver the instructional methods identified (Clark, 2005).
