Designing for Open Learning: Design principles and scalability affordances in practice

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Article in proceedingAcademicpeer-review


    This work-in-progress paper elaborates on a gradually evolving approach to design of open learning and the design principles used by the Open University of the Netherlands in short open courses - online masterclasses and in Massive Open Online Courses – delivered in the learning environment of the Open University and in the experimental multilingual MOOC aggregator EMMA as part of a European project. As the paper will demonstrate, these principles can be seen as building blocks of open scalable design of active and engaging learning.
