The Learning Designer is an interactive Learning Design Support Environment developed by LDSE, an ESRC/EPSRC funded Technology Enhanced Learning project.
Currently our software, the Learning Designer, is in development. You can download prototype Version 3 beta below.
To run the Learning Designer, you should have the latest version of the Java Runtime Engine (JRE) installed on your system. For Macs, this is part of your Operating System installation.
- Important Disclaimer -
The Learning Designer software is pre-release and is a prototype for demonstration purposes only. We can't warrant that it will work without defects and you should not use it for any work that you can't afford to lose. We are regularly releasing updates to the software which may not be backward-compatible, as the file format for import and export is still under review. Thus, any work you do in a given version may not be compatible with future versions. You may encounter bugs while you use the software or it may behave erratically, as it is a prototype.
Some of our our latest work involves exploring the use of pedagogical patterns as re-usable learning designs. Your feedback can directly assist us in exploring the use of learning patterns and building on the work of others.
