As part of our Learning Design and Course Business Models work we have been developing a number of views for a course. A key view is the Course Map view (or at a glance view), see related cloud.  This shows the components of a course in terms of four categories

  • Content and Activities
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Guidance and Support
  • Reflection and Demonstration

In the last few days I have been thinking about this a bit more and in particular I have been exploring how each of these categories can be further refined into a set of course dimensions. I've written a couple of blog posts about this and would really welcome thoughts (links attached).

Have you seen this? http://learn.open.ac.uk/mod/resource/view.php?id=279860&direct=1 only available to OU staff and students i am afraid. If you think it might be relevant i will investigate uploading a stand alone version.

Hi Tim no I hadn't this is really interesting! Very nice representation, clear and visual. Would be great if you could upload a stand along version. Why not start a new cloud with it so people can discuss it? Makes me wonder what other views there are out there?
