project forecast

Application of OpenDesignStudio (ODS) within U101: Design Thinking plus other core design courses -T211: Design and Designing and T307: Innovation: Design for a Sustainable Future.

Possible application of Atelier-D work in non-design OU Courses? Major opportunities for ODS, Elluminate, Ning, Compendium.

  • Application of tools and learning in other universities:
  • ODS trial with a selected university to support face-to-face design education.
  • European funding bid: Language learning in architectural education (ODS, SecondLife).
  • Creating a social community of design learners and educators:
  • Social networking (Ning) providing a fun, interactive space.
  • Community resource for tutors and staff.
  • Extending life of Atelier-D through ‘Open Educational Resources’.
  • Acquiring and assimilating information, sharing, solving, prototyping, evaluating.
