Planning your open course - before you build it

Before you attempt to upload anything online, you will need to think about the following:

  1. Audience and purpose
  2. Learning Design
  3. Structure and Metadata
  4. Writing the course
  5. Copyright
  6. Accessibility
  7. Assessment and rewards

7. Assessment and rewards

You may decide that you want learners to enrol on your course and work through assessment activities to earn a statement of participation / custom Moodle certificate and / or a course badge.

OpenLearn Create has the functionality to support open badges. You will need to work out what the assessment criteria will be for your course badge, complete the project request form and email it to so the OpenLearn Create team can review it and discuss your course with you. Subsequently you will need to design your badge, then complete and submit a badge details form which will be sent to you once your badge request has been reviewed.
