Abstract

This paper addresses the related issues of which pedagogies improve with scale and how to develop a novel platform for inquiry-led learning at scale. The paper begins by introducing pedagogy-informed design of platforms for learning at scale. It then summarizes previous work to develop a platform for open science investigations. Then, it introduces a new platform for inquiry-led learning at scale. The paper concludes with an evaluation of the effectiveness of the platform to: meet its design requirements; enable individuals, groups and institutions to design inquiry-led investigations; engage members of the public to participate; and enable learning activities on the platform to sustain and grow.
