There are many approaches to designing your course and many resources on the internet for this purpose. The video shows how Linoit – a free, easy-to-use tool – can be used to develop a story board to plan your course.
Optional exercise: Use Linoit to develop a story board for your own MOOC. (It is generally agreed that a basic framework for course design begins by identifying learning objectives and assessments before going on to develop learning activities. We have not yet dealt with assessment, which will be included in module 5, but you can still try the exercise).
Time needed: Video – 9:48 mins; Exercise (optional): 30 mins
Tip: If you decide to do the exercise, you may share the link in the discussion space called ‘MOOC Design’ on the next page to receive feedback from your peers.
