Learning Creative Learning (LCL) is a free online course designed to share principles and strategies on how to engage people in creative learning experiences, i.e. working on projects that they are passionate about, in collaboration with peers, within a playful environment that encourages experimentation. Although LCL is organized and presented as a six-week online course, its ultimate goal is to cultivate an ongoing learning community in support of creative learning around the world. Through our two past edition of the course in 2013 and 2014, we identified three design tensions to achieve this goal: offering a course while developing a community, supporting multiple pathways into a shared experience, and supporting both local and global communities. This spotlight presentation describes the design choices that we made in the latest edition, as a way to negotiate those tensions. In addition, we share some ideas for future directions.
