I probably would not have named this the 'Wiley Wiki Design', but when someone like Leigh names something for you, how do you refuse? =)

What is the design? The core design components seem to be:

  • Running everything in the open
  • Using an open wiki as the core delivery method and encouraging learner contribution to the core learning goals / outcomes, reading lists, educational materials, etc.
  • Using open blogs as the core writing outlet for weekly writing and encouraging broad community engagement in the writing, discussion, and feedback processes
  • Accepting class members regardless of location / admission at the organizer's (teacher's) university / organization
  • Offering multiple paths to credit through:
    • Normal channels for students at the organizer's university
    • Backchannels for students at other universities (I had good luck with people signing up for independent studies at their home universities with a faculty member who agreed to accepted the course grade I awarded at end of term)
    • A homemade certificate of completion which did not have any university credit attached but was still highly valued by several participants
