The Centre for Distance Education funded 'Design Patterns for MOOCs' project has been running for one year. In that time four workshops have been run using the participatory patterns workshop methodology. These have taken a group of expert MOOC designers and builders from sharing narratives of successful practice through to publishable set of design patterns. In total 20 design patterns and 1 anti-pattern have been documented - the full set of design patterns and descriptions can be found here on the project website. A number of validation workshops are now being run to test the design patterns against novel design scenarios. These are rapid design challenges that use a set of design pattern cards; the format can be seen here on the website.
