This section provides useful templates for designing, evaluation, implementing MOOCs and further sources for the use of MOOCs for the world of business.
|Tool / Template
|What and when to use
|Course Planner by the Open University
|A really helpful tool for MOOC design. Define your general course information, week overview, learning outcomes plus workload and create one detailed spreadsheet for each week. We have used this template for our Pilot MOOC production. You may adapt it to your needs.
|A conceptual framework for supporting educators in the description and design of MOOCs. The MOOC Canvas is inspired by the Business Model Canvas and defines eleven interrelated issues that are addressed through a set of questions, offering a visual and understandable guidance for educators during the MOOC design process.
|MOOC Design Patterns
|A set of design patterns that can be employed to design the MOOC and its activities. The design patterns can be downloaded as a set of cards to be printed.
|Review template MOOC design
|Template one can (re-)use to review the design of a MOOC. The quality dimensions and criteria are based on existing literature and aligned with those used in other MOOC projects and by MOOC platforms
|Pre-MOOC survey amongst MOOC participants
|Questionnaire about characteristics and intentions amongst participants before the MOOC starts
|Post-MOOC evaluation survey amongst participants
|Questionnaire for evaluating MOOCs amongst participants after the MOOC ended.
|Pre-MOOC expert evaluation
|Open questions used to get feedback from external experts before MOOC starts. This has a generic framework but some questions are tailored to specific aim and target group of the MOOC.
|Post-MOOC expert evaluation
|Open questions used to get feedback from external experts in focus group session afterMOOC ended. Again this has a generic framework but some questions are tailored to specific aim and target group of the MOOC.
|Learning Design Instruction Video
|At the start of the Pilot MOOC production in the BizMOOC project, the whole team received a training at the Open University UK to the principles of Learning Design. A video was recorded as an introduction to Learning Design for everyone who is interested.
