The recent technological advancements provide many opportunities for improvement of learners' experience. The social nature of modern educational systems and the blending of formal and informal learning enable for more situated and personalized learning experiences. Moreover, the vast amount of data about learning activities can be utilized in a proactive manner to enable data-informed instructional interventions and attainment of learning outcomes. However, the present instructional and learning design approaches do not take into the account the potentials of digital data and analytics. In this paper, we introduce the Digital Learning Design framework which enables the development of course learning designs in a manner that incorporates evidence-driven nature of modern analytical systems with the sound pedagogical underpinnings of learning design research.
