7Cs update – the toolkit takes shape

Last Friday a group of us had a very animated discussion with Grainne Conole, in which we tried to map the 7Cs of learning design to the e-tivities and other tools that we have been developing and collating for most of the last year as a suite of open educational resources for learning designers. (See The 7Cs of Learning Design Toolkit, which is work in progress, mainly arising out of the JISC-funded SPEED project.) The result of our meeting was a very neat framework with four distinct phases – vision, activities, synthesis and implementation, which Grainne has shared on Slideshare.

The representation of the 7Cs has now moved from this:

The 7Cs of design and delivery

The 7Cs of design and delivery

To this:

7 cs update

… which makes it much clearer how the four Cs in the “activities” box relate to the rest of the Cs.


Grainne getting to grips with the 7Cs

I’m looking forward to using this revised version of the 7Cs framework for the structuring of our courses and resources on learning design. Our aim is to make all the resources available from a central point (a website), organised under the headings of the 7Cs.
