JDTA Item and Learning Object Versioning –Proposed Approach Jamie Stewart, Steve Wicinski, Jim Ferrall AIM Team. 4 April 2012. Overview. Status of versioning efforts JDTA Item Versioning Contract with the Fleet Creating and Approving Versioning Approved Items Learning Object Versioning
4 April 2012
Principle #1: Each course, module, lesson, and section will have a unique version number assigned and controlled by CPM. A new version may be requested from either CPM or the LO Module; however, new versions are approved only in CPM by the Project Owner or other user with appropriate privileges.
Principle #2: School administrators must be able to tell which students completed which training courses.
Therefore, each unique aggregation of learning objects which make up a course must be versioned. Lessons are versioned when the content (Introduction, Summary, etc.) or the aggregation of sections (a new version of a section or re-sequencing of the existing versions) requires a change. The same approach holds for versioning Modules and Courses.
