Innovation by Design

Indian Institute of Technology Bombay , AICTE and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

In a world full of challenges and problems that need to be urgently addressed, innovation is what makes it possible to come up with solutions that will benefit the maximum number of users. And such, innovation is often enabled by design. The MOOC 'Innovation by Design' familiarizes students with the concept of innovation. It traces the journey of a design idea from the identification of a problem to a final solution that has a positive impact on a large group of users. Through case studies that focus on the "seven concerns of innovation", the course shows how the innovation process requires empathy, meticulous effort, constant user interaction and effective collaboration.This course has eight modules. The first module is an introduction to the seven concerns of innovation: the cause, the context, the comprehension, the check, the conception, the crafting and the connection. Each of the seven concerns is taken up for detailed discussion in modules two to eight. The course emphasizes the iterative nature of the innovation process and points out why ideas often fail when they encounter pitfalls at critical points in this process. The course also acquaints students with the 'collaborative model of innovation', a concept that captures the kind of teamwork and collaborative effort required at each stage of the design journey.
