Recently we have seen a renewal of interest in systematic approaches to educational design, and some of this work gives proper regard to the complexity of learning. E-learning design patterns offer a challenging method for systematic educational design, and tries to re-use design knowledge to provide means for sharing design experience and to support the work of multidisciplinary e-learning development teams. The aims of this symposium is to promote the creation and use design patterns in the e-learning community, to discuss their possible added value or shortcomings, as well as to introduce participants to the latest advances in the construction of e-learning design patterns. We bring together researchers who have long experience in elearning research and development and have been involved in projects that deal with design patterns in the educational context.
