The purpose of this study is to design an open course in the field of Turkish Education as a Foreign Language that can be used by everyone as an open course material with a plain and simple interface, through which participants can learn Turkish in their own pace and under their own control in a thematic and fun way with topics from real life.

With the learning environment developed as a part of this research, through completely distance education, a free learning environment is constituted for approximately 90,000 foreign students who have come to Turkey for educational purposes and for approximately 3.1 million refugees in Turkey who cannot afford to participate in a Turkish teaching program. With this service, the participation process of the social, cultural and economic life and employment of disadvantaged groups is aimed to be accelerated; and the quality of this participation increased by learning Turkish. Additionally, it is targeted at all people around the world who want to learn Turkish language and culture and benefit from the learning environments developed. The existence of instructions structured in English, Russian and Arabic is expected to expand the audience especially at lower levels.

The research was constituted as a design based research model. In the research, first, learning outcomes for A1 and A2 levels have been written based upon European Language Certificate Program Criteria. A spirally structured content arrangement has been made to serve to these outcomes, and e-learning materials have been designed and produced to transmit the content to the participants, which are e-courses, animated videao, dialogues, games and grammar video lessons all of which aim to improve students’ listening and reading comprehension, check their own learning and have fun.
