The Reload Learning Design Editor (LDE) is an Open Source, close-to-specification, treebased Learning Design (LD) editor written in Java using the Eclipse platform. The editor tools are complemented by a LD Player, which provides a familiar and user-friendly interface to the CopperCore LD runtime engine. This paper will describe the history and design rationale underpinning the tools, show how they fit into the LD authoring tools framework devised by Griffiths et al. (2005) and consider their suitability to various user roles and design approaches. The paper will conclude by outlining future versions of the software and how these new developments should facilitate the creation and manipulation of Units of Learning by staff in all user roles.
