Introduction

The Curtin Challenge mobile application, for active digital learning experiences, tracks user actions at high resolution allowing analysis of cognitive and behavioural change. The teaching and learning approach of the platform uses challenge-based learning to shape the learning process, and evidence-centred design to inform the assessment process. Students largely self-teach through self-organized activity that is scaffolded and can be supported by mentors. The Curtin teaching and learning platform supports any number of people via technology-enhanced digital learning experiences.

Curtin Challenge is designed to support self-directed learning, self-organizing international teams, open-ended problem solving that requires complex thinking and is cross-disciplinary, automated documentation and assessment of learning, social network validation processes, expert judging and a variety of levels of recognition and awards. Challenge enables individuals to build up a private, safe and trusted longitudinal record of digital engagement and to make progress at the individual level while working alone or with others. Individuals can participate numerous times in any number of different challenges and can gain a collection of micro-credentials that stand as evidence of meeting university-level progress and achievement.
