Design patterns and principles for MOOCs?
Cloud created by:
26 June 2012
Next week we will have our kick-off conference call, and in the last week of July we're planning a design workshop for our MOOC. As we gather momentum, we need to consider examples of past MOOCs, and try to understand what lessons can be learnt from them.
Design Patterns and Design Principles are two common forms for capturing design knowledge. Since I'm not aware of any existing collections of "MOOC design patterns and principles" (and neither is google), I suggest we start one here and now.
- Choose an example MOOC (if it's not listed - add it)
- Identify a design pattern or principle, and document it (in a google doc). For patterns, you can use this template.
- Find other examples which support your pattern / principle, and note the theoretical justification for it.
- Post a link to your pattern / principle here.
