We explore an unconventional format for representing the structure of online courses—beaded representations. We used this format as a mediational tool to engage a design team in reflective discussion about the design of its courses. We discuss challenges associated with the design of “massive open online courses” (MOOCs) and position beaded representations within the context of human-computer interaction (HCI) literature on materiality, novel representational forms, and the use of boundary objects to support design teams. We describe the outcomes of a focus group session with design team members mediated by the beaded representations, which include: (1) discovery of curricular connections, (2) understanding of learner experience, (3) insights about the design process, and (4) reflection on the method.
