Production Services

Design studio

Our team of highly experienced online learning developers work collaboratively with your subject matter experts to understand learning outcomes and develop engaging world class learning experiences for delivery across a range of platforms.

Using flexible user-centric and evidence-based design approaches informed by years of OU experience in distance learning, we develop complete learning programmes that are optimised for online delivery and offer a high-quality user experience.

Our services

The OU operates at scale and has significant in-house cross-functional capability that covers an extensive range of educational media development, including:

  • Course design and delivery
  • Content adaptation
  • Content curation
  • Platform hosting
  • Project and programme management
  • Learning design
  • Editorial
  • Graphic design  
  • Interactive media
  • AV production
  • A wide network of specialist outsourcers and suppliers

In addition to providing complete end-to-end online course creation and hosting services, the OU can also assist partners with adapting their existing face-to-face programmes into engaging online or blended learning experiences on their own platforms.

Our approach

Our team works iteratively with partners from the initial learning design stage, where decisions about the most effective types of assets and pedagogic approaches to deliver the learning objectives are made, through to the review of draft content on the platform and then to final delivery. This process is coordinated by a Project Manager who can adapt plans and design approaches to best meet the needs of our partners and ensure that products adhere to quality standards.
