“FLITE CDD Assistant” an APP that served the consortium for the creation of the distributed set-up for the ConCurrent Design process used for the preparation and execution of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation MOOC that we conducted both on the OpenPlatform and the Canvas Network.
The FLITE team says hello to the students from the Course “Entrepreneurship and Innovation” (Pilot 2)
The Course “Entrepreneurship and Innovation”began on the 18th of May, with around 1504 students enrolled from Europe, but not only. Now, for the next 8 weeks, the students are supposed to work in teams, using a methodology called CCD – ConCurrent Design, which is based in collaborative processes, to produce a business plan using the Osterwalder Canvas. The pedagogical idea is based on SSDL – Staged Self Directed Learning and PLN – Personal Learning Network is encouraged.
We wish to all students’ success in their studies and hope this time will be enjoyable and fruitful.

The pedagogical idea was based on SSDL – Staged Self Directed Learning and PLN – Personal Learning Network is encouraged. The main idea to work in the course was to work together in distributed groups using tools supporting distributed collaboration. OpenClass was used, tightly connected to Google.
With the experience and results acquired from this test Pilot 1, the consortium is now ready to launch Pilot 2 as a final offer of this course.
