This report presents an evaluation of the Open Learning Design Studio MOOC (OLDS MOOC) that took place between January and March 2013. This evaluation focuses on the experience of those who registered, participated and actively contributed in the public course space. In particular the evaluation focuses on participant expectations, a detailed analysis of participation rates, use of the course space and technologies, and the effectiveness and challenges presented by collaborative group working. The evaluation also looks at how participants understood and used the series of nine badges on offer. Throughout, a broad evidence base of qualitative and quantitative information is used including data from pre- and post-course surveys, from page view and contributions data available in the public spaces and from hundreds of participant blog, discussion forum and social media posts.
