In this chapter, a specific learning design method is introduced and explained, namely the Collaborative E-learning Design method (CoED), which has been developed through various projects in “e-Learning Lab – Centre for User Driven Innovation, Learning and Design” (Nyvang & Georgsen, 2007). We briefly situate this method within the wider area of Learning Design, where after we present the theoretical background of the CoED method. We illustrate the method through discussing its concrete implementation in recent projects and discuss its capacities and challenges in relation to other methods within the area of learning design. Finally, we discuss some challenges related to the CoED-method and the field of learning design in general.
