This MESH guide will be useful for educators who are interested in designing and evaluating social online learning, creating online courses such as MOOCs, facilitating online communities and networks, or integrating technology use into their teaching. Drawing from relevant learning theory and research evidence, including a number of systematic literature reviews and a selection of key studies, the guide outlines ways in which technology can facilitate the co-construction of knowledge in online and blended learning environments. It suggests pedagogic strategies and frameworks for designing online learning spaces and communities of practice, and considers the roles of participants and teachers within them.
