There’s been lots of excitement, flipchart paper and conversation in our office since 20 January. While the latter isn’t unusual, implementing the ideas from the Designing Online Learning for the Future Hack Day has been the sole topic of discussion. This has been fuelled by the responses to the feedback forms and the emails we’ve been receiving from OU staff and students alike.

Hack Day wasn’t just an opportunity to gather great ideas – we’re keen to build on the day by increasing student participation in the development of modules and tools, so they better suit their needs.
