Abstract: This paper tells the story of DALITE, a design-based experiment, involving a co-design project, spanning three iterations and nearly four years. DALITE was designed around the principles of peer instruction, in particular, self-explanation and intentional reflection. DALITE consists of two databases: a database of college-level physics questions and another of student-generated rationales. We report on the iterative design process that has shaped this web-based asynchronous learning environment and on its use as part of an active learning pedagogy. Using mixed methods we have tested DALITE’s effectiveness to support conceptual change, examined the content of its databases, observed its use in classrooms, and conducted interviews from users – students as well as instructors. These data help to reveal the conditions of DALITE’s effectiveness. We discuss our findings and provide design guidelines.
