Our 3rd International Learning Design Challenge: “Move-it-Online”, led by Professor Diana Laurillard, will start on 30 October 2014. The Challenge is organised in collaboration with MirandaNet and Hand-On-ICT project.
It is on open MOOC-like event for all who are interested in understanding the impact of taking teaching and learning activities online. The aim is to provide ways of describing and sharing most effective teaching ideas, especially those that illustrate ‘pedagogically purposeful uses of technology for learning’.
As learning designers we will collaborate and build together how to take teaching and learning online. Our “Move-it Online” challenge will provide designing, sharing and peer feedback opportunities about how to deliver online learning experiences.
The event will introduce the Learning Designer, a simple web interface that enables the user to browse learning designs for selected learning outcomes, topics and activities. It is possible to search for designs, review designs and adapt designs and create your own design. The focus of the learning designs will be around technology, in particular activity designs that make better use of their VLEs, learning designs for delivering online learning experiences and teaching ICT in a broad sense e.g. TEL, digital literacies, Computer Science and e-safety. The challenge gives all participants hands-on access to the design tool, with guided activities in browsing, designing and sharing designs.
During the challenge there will be opportunities for the participants to comment on the design of the Course Resource Appraisal Model (CRAM) tool and to make suggestions for changes, critique existing designs, and develop your own designs and experiment with resources and cost modelling when moving from face-to-face to online teaching.

Who is the Challenge for?
This challenge is open to all participants who deliver education to all sectors both formal and informal, so for example:
- I never use any technology in my classroom to teach and I would like to think about designing an activity that I could use with some learning experiences I have in mind;
- I would like to try to bring a particular experience of using technology in the classroom to help with a particular learning experience;
- I have never taken any activity online and would like to design an activity and get feedback about this;
- I do a lots of blended learning and I want to take this opportunity to get some feedback from my peers;
- I do a lots of blended learning and I want to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences through the learning designer and CRAM tool and get some feedback from my peers;
- I do lots of online teaching I want to take this opportunity to get some feedback from my peers;
- I do lots of online designs and I am interested in using the learning designer tool and CRAM tool and getting feedback from my peers;
- I am an instructional designer and work with teachers to take their courses online and I would like see how if these tools can help me;
- The challenge sounds interesting and I would like to experiment and find out more …
- I just like learning about new things…
