Digital skills for collaborative OER development/Learning challenges
A distinctive feature of this course is the inclusion of a number of "hands on" and "learn-by-doing" learning challenges.
The learning challenges are designed to provide scaffolding and the corresponding skills development needed for successful completion of the course outcomes. The learning challenges are optional for learners participating for self-interest but are valuable in developing your open design skills. The artefacts produced can be reused and improved for inclusion in the final assignment of this course for learners seeking formal academic credit. Learners share their experiences by posting on their course blogs.
