October last year I shortly introduced an instrument we developed which enables different stakeholders such as teachers, students, course designers and researchers to analyse the educational scalability of their course design when it comes to formative feedback. (You can read here more about it)

I am glad to inform you that both the instrument and the corresponding paper are accessible online now!

You can find the paper “A Framework towards Educational Scalability of Open Online Courses” here

You can find the design analysis instrument here

If you have any questions regarding the paper and/or the instrument feel free to contact me here: julia.kasch(at)ou.nl

Don’t know what I am talking about? No problem, let me explain:
