The primary questions within this proposal are driven by a desire to understand the design processes and mechanisms by which we come to create and deliver open and distance learning at scale and by extension how we can formulate this into sharable design solutions that can be applied by others. Particularly where we are observing differentiation and varying degrees of success in the current landscape as defined by:
The expected outputs include a set of design patterns and a prospective pattern language to support the continued development of MOOCs in relation to the particular design challenges this form of ODL presents. The proposal also intends to experiment with the SNaP! / PPW design itself by extending the workshops to include a parallel set of massively open online workshop activities to support extended participation from global experts and practitioners.
