  • 8. Feedback the ... team here at ... have used a number of the tools & techniques that I learned about during the OLDS MOOC. Specifically, we used the Persona & Course Features Cards during a two-day Design & Development workshop held in late February. it has changed the way that I work and has provided me with some useful tools and input into an EU educational project I am involved in. Some of your approaches helped me articulate problems with the delivery mode we were then trialing, and have contributed to changing the approach significantly. In particular the idea of a force map and analyzing the positions of all the players involved helped change direction and overcome some resistance to the project which we were encountering.
