Learning Design has emerged in the last fifteen years or so as a new methodology to help practitioners make more pedagogically informed design decisions that make appropriate use of digital technologies. In parallel we have seen the rise of the open education movement; first through the emergence of Open Educational Resources (OER) and then through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). OER and MOOCs are challenging existing educational offerings and have specific requirements in terms of their design. This paper will describe the current status of Learning Design research and will then articulate the 7Cs of Learning Design framework (and related Learning Design frameworks) and will consider how this can be used to design OER and MOOCs.
