  7. 7. Do our VLEs make the most of all these affordances? Now (typical online course in HE) The future? Content generated by course designer/ teacher Learner-generated content VLE as content repository controlled by teacher/ course designer Collective aggregation of content Peer critiquing? Community formation? Digital personas? Blurring of boundaries?

  17. 17. Evaluation (from SPEED pilot) • We made a big breakthrough. We have achieved insight about the need to structure it as … an online course, and not just simply as a set of learning activities plus integrated resources. • The visual nature of the tools and the quick and easy way that one could use it... They help stimulate us to look at the course in a different way, in a natural and creative way even if we didn’t see all the little links right upfront. • I wanted to have my thinking challenged with regard to course design and development and I definitely left reflecting and questioning our unit's current approach and have some good tools and approaches to pilot... • It’s a way of freeing your mind and putting all the ideas of all the people in the course team down somewhere, not having to be so prescriptive. It was just a much freer and [more] creative experience than getting the learning outcomes and writing them as active verbs, and getting in at a granular level. It was quite sort of a liberating thing to just have everybody move components around and say, ‘Do you know I really like all these features. I’d like to do some problem-based learning. I’d like to do peer-review.’

  20. 20. Conclusion • 7Cs – a new learning design framework. • Involves a range of conceptual representations of courses • The evaluation indicates that the framework is welcomed and that the conceptual designs enable teachers to rethink their design practice to create more engaging learning interventions for their learners. • The conceptual views can also be used with learners, to give them an indication of the nature of the courses they are undertaking. • We aim to continue to refine the elements of the framework. In particular more work is needed around the ‘consider’ and ‘consolidate’ elements, including rubrics for assessment and evaluation of the effectiveness of the design.
