The Design Book for Online Learning – a tool for developing online courses is now published
FITech has published The Design Book for Online Learning to support the teachers of the network university
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.

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.
