  2. 2. The Principles
  3. 3. Pedagogic approach is derived from connectivism, curation and heutagogy, Pedagogic approach aims to encourage active learning, content creation, community building, critical participation, digital literacy and lifelong learning.
  4. 4. The technical approach is to exploit a flexible combination of universally available, highly familiar, mobile-accessible ‘free’ and ‘open’ platforms
  5. 5. This approach combines the technical and pedagogic scalability of the MOOC with learner empowerment and agency, and cultural flexibility and sensitivity within the relevant constraints of infrastructure, access and connectivity.
