ABSTRACT
This guide is a comprehensive summary of how we went about creating Citizen Maths, an open online maths course and service.
The guide shares our design principles and the techniques we used to put them into practice.
Our aim is to provide – with the appropriate ‘translation’ – a resource that will be useful to to other teams who are developing online education initiatives.
