This guidebook provides hands-on tools and frameworks especially for the creation and development of online courses.

The teachers of FITech are facing a new situation with extremely diverse student population and the learning happening mostly online. This is why FITech is providing ready-to-use tools in a compact format. The Design Book functions as a user manual for the previously published Learning Design Toolkit, and its content is based on the science of learning.

The Design Book is published in English and Finnish under the open CCBY 4.0 -license. Simultaneously with the booklet, an updated version 2.0 of the Learning Design Toolkit is being published in English, Finnish and Swedish. FITech would like to thank Anna Granberg from Åbo Akademi University for her contribution on the Swedish version.

  1. Why online courses, why design?
  2. The Psychology of Learning – the Basics
  3. How to create an online course?
  4. Design Tools: Planning and Production of an Online Course in Practice
