The e-Design Template is a Word-based pedagogic template that guides teachers when planning e-Learning. It highlights the core principles for effective e-Learning and invites users to focus on designing learning activities that embed these principles. The template suggests activities for a range of delivery patterns, including distance and blended learning. It 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. In this chapter, the e-Design Template is described with detailed examples. The value of this approach for sharing and re-use within a broader, online community of practice is also discussed.
