Hi everyone looking forward to participating in the course. This is providing us with an opportunity to combine the University of Leicester's work on Carpe Diem with the learning design work developed at the OU UK as part of the OULDI initiative.

I've added some links to OULDI, a blog post about the 7C's of learning design and the OPAL OER initiative. Click on the links tab to see these.
