Obviously, that makes a lot of sense and we do not need a research for that. But it also depend on what you measure and how it is used.
Unless... students use technology to find alternative ways to teach themselves :-)

At this price there must be a possibility that the book will remain niche. To be ubuquitous may require a wider sense of what learning includes. Is there a blog version of some of it? what is the #tag  to find some links? Next Wednesday we are trying out  a sort of conference day #mtwr  looking mostly at sound and radio. Books may follow the trend of lower prices and more streaming. More later.

Hands-on MOOC Design Workshop at EC TEL 2015, Toledo, Spain This is the sixth workshop in the MOOC design patterns project series, conducted in collaboration with MOOCs & co. This workshop will guide participants in the process of designing a MOOC using Design Scenarios, Narratives and Patterns (SNaP). The workshop uses an enhanced version of the Learning Design Studio methodology, which was originally conceived by one of the authors as a format ...

Our book is out!
The Art & Science of Learning Design

Marcelo Maina (University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain), Brock Craft (Goldsmiths, University of London, UK) and Yishay Mor (PAU Education, Barcelona, Spain) (Eds.)

We live in an era defined by a wealth of open and readily available information, and the accelerated evolution of social, mobile and creative technologies. The provision of knowledge, once a primary role of educators, is now devolved to an immense web of free and readily accessible sources. Consequently, educators need to redefine their role not just “from sage on the stage to guide on the side” but, as more and more voices insist, as “designers for learning”.

The call for such a repositioning of educators is heard from leaders in the field of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) and resonates well with the growing culture of design-based research in Education. However, it is still struggling to find a foothold in educational practice. We contend that the root causes of this discrepancy are the lack of articulation of design practices and methods, along with a shortage of tools and representations to support such practices, a lack of a culture of teacher-as-designer among practitioners, and insufficient theoretical development.

The Art and Science of Learning Design (ASLD) explores the frameworks, methods, and tools available for teachers, technologists and researchers interested in designing for learning Learning Design theories arising from findings of research are explored, drawing upon research and practitioner experiences. It then surveys current trends in the practices, methods, and methodologies of Learning Design. Highlighting the translation of theory into practice, this book showcases some of the latest tools that support the learning design process itself.

I wish it was available in multiple formats :) can I wait until it is in stock here in Canada?  Order has been placed (I guess I can wait). lol. Congrats Yishay!

Call for Papers eLearning Papers no. 42: Design Patterns for Open Online Teaching and Learning

Deadline: 11 May
Guest Editor: Professor Steven Warburton, University of Surrey

We are excited to announce a call for papers for a special issue of "eLearning Papers" on design patterns for online teaching and learning.  
The rapid rise of massive open online courses (MOOCS) has revived interest in the broader spectrum of open online teaching and learning. This “renaissance” has highlighted the challenges and potentials associated to the design of such educational environments. Arguably, the accelerated expansion of open online education creates risks forpedagogical quality and learner experience. There is an urgent need to articulate, share and critique design knowledge in this field.
We are witnessing a wealth of different approaches to the delivery, pedagogy, functionalities and support mechanisms for Open Online Learning. Some have these have been successful and others not so successful – for an example we can see high variability in the documented retention rates across different MOOC offerings.
Design patterns and pattern languages have been proposed as effective means to facilitate rigorous discourse, bridging theory and practice (Bergin et al, 2012; Conole et al, 2010; Goodyear, 2005; Mor et al, 2012; Mor et al, 2014; Sharp et al, 2003). The Design patterns paradigm was proposed by Christopher Alexander as a form of design language within architecture. A design pattern describes a recurring problem, or design challenge, the characteristics of the context in which it occurs, and a possible method of solution. These patterns were organized into coherent systems called pattern languages where patterns are related to each other. 
Some of the key questions within this call are underpinned by a desire to understand the design processes and mechanisms by which we come to create and deliver open online learning at scale and by extension how we can formulate this into sharable design solutions that can be applied by others. Particularly where we are observing differentiation and varying degrees of success in the current landscape as defined by:
● Delivery modes and platform choices;
● Style of open online courses;
● Reported experiences of learners;
● Reported experiences of tutors;
● Assessment and accreditation mechanisms;
● Increasing use of motivational schemes such as badging and micro-certification;
● Retention and progression;
● Increasing use of analytics;
In this issue, we are seeking either pattern papers, pattern review papers or papers which discuss the process of eliciting and using design patterns in the design and delivery of open online education. This may include the following: 
1. Papers reviewing existing pattern languages applicable to online learning;
2. Theory and methodology for mining / using patterns in relation to designing for Open Online Courses;
3. Pattern papers, including design narrative(s), design pattern(s) and scenario(s);
4. Application of patterns to design problems in open online learning.
For examples of pattern papers, please see the references below. You might also want to explore as an environment for authoring and sharing design narratives, design paterns and design scenarios.
