Developing open and distance learning programmes

Effective, elegant and efficient open learning programmes bridge the gap between the learning medium, whether web, CD or paper-based, and the intentions of the programme's designers.

Development of genuinely excellent open learning programmes comes about as a result of understanding how to bridge the gap between:

  • the capabilities, costs and resource requirements of the learning medium


  • the learning outcomes, audience, curriculum, academic level and educational intent.

The educational developers and instructional designers are the architects of this bridge. They are responsible for ensuring that each and every learning programme is enjoyable, rewarding and educationally effective.

At Pilgrim Projects we understand the territory on both sides of the gap.
