The UX of Co-Design: Experience Principles for Successful Client Workshops

Adaptive Path

In the past six months, I've been leading design teams of twenty, sometimes thirty people. Some of these people are designers, but the majority are managers, business strategists, front-line workers, and P&L owners. Together we have been solving big wonky strategy and design problems that matter deeply to how our client will continue to support and grow relationships with their customers in the future. Without carefully designed activities, unhappy groups abound.

The MOOC of One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I''m one of the people who designed the concept originally in 2008. What I mean is massive by design, massive in the sense that it can continue to scale without losing its essential shape. We wanted to design a system that could scale without changing the nature of learning. That''s the course we designed out of the box, and then we told our students ?? There are some design principles that make good ones as compared to bad ones. These are the design principles.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning design was an attempt to emulate what was called programmed learning in the course packages, a way of leading the student through the materials one step at a time. The interaction part of MuniMall worked really well and, in fact, the community lasted for 10 years from the original design. People learn for themselves and they design their own learning. How did we design this? You need to design humans in the same way except you don't get to design humans.

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.
