There is a wider interest in the approach and related methods, such as pedagogic patterns. We will collaborate with that community through an Open Professorship to enhance the understanding of how OER work and connect from design to models of use.
Outcome on the specific OER level:
1. Design-based description in a shareable representation.
2. Data on the interpretation of design and how it can support reuse.
3. Materials to capture the approach and enhance participation.
4. Use data on designs in relation to OER
On the network level:
1. A collection of social objects that enable research discussions .
2. Community building through sharing of representations and interlinking with the OER community.
3. Integration of tools (e.g. from Cloudworks) within the OLnet framework.

I agree that learning design should be transparent and simple enough to accomodate a wide range of content. A basic design that I have been working with lately (on a project about digital identity awareness) involves 3 components:
- questions for reflection (to set context)
- example or case study
- information to support action
The design supports the principle that we have varying levels of comfort with exposure online and there is no "right" way for all. Project: http://digitaltattoo.ubc.ca/
