The e-Design Template is a simple (Word-based) pedagogic template that guides teachers and tutors when planning e-Learning. It highlights a small number of principles for good e-Learning and invites users to focus on learning activities that embed these principles. The template suggests activities for a range of delivery patterns 
including distance and blended learning and can be used to design curriculum-focused 
or tool-focused e-Learning. It has been used successfully to design small courses, whole awards and to review existing e-Learning designs, and is available in an online community of practice that discusses and develops the template and the associated e-learning activities.
