the learning designs
The Learning Designs
  • Level B
  • Used properties to control progress e.g.
    • Tutor monitors activities and allows to progress
    • File upload triggers progression
  • Group work
  • QTI
  • Granularity of UoLs was an issue
    • Flexibility
    • Global properties used to link UoLs
      • (e.g. can’t start week 3 until completed week 2)
the authoring process
The authoring process
  • Tutors attend an authoring workshop
  • Subsequently author designs to IMS LD level A using Reload
    • Some support
  • Designs authored to level B (properties & conditions) using Reload
case mythologies of loss
Case: Mythologies of Loss
  • English tutor at Liverpool Hope University (LHU)
  • Supported in drawing up an IMS LD unit of learning (UoL)
  • Using the Reload IMS LD editor
  • UoL supports a six-week topic: “Mythologies of Loss” within a second year HE module “Twentieth-Century Readings”
    • Run using SLeD/Coppercore
authoring to level b
Authoring to level B
  • Reload well suited to tasks
  • Collaborative authoring was a problem
    • Reference clashes - used XML editor - time consuming
  • Viewing/setting properties- producing form in XML
    • “form builder” within editor would have been useful
  • Scripting (conditions) was easier in XML editor
tutor experience
Tutor experience
  • “The advantage [of LD] is that both the tutor and the student can see an overview of the route through the course” Sebastian Groes, English Tutor
  • “… the most pedagogical sound method I have used …” - Amanda Oddie, Computer Science tutor
  • “I like the way we can structure the learning so that students have to respond to feedback before progressing” – Chris Beaumont, Computer Science tutor
running with students
Running with students
  • UoL published to the SLeD/Coppercore IMS LD player
  • Running on a server at LHU
  • Made available to learners attending the tutor’s module.
learner experience
Learner experience
  • Generally positive about:
    • Guidance offered
    • Ease of navigation
    • Ease of use
    • Usefulness
learner experience1
Learner experience
  • “SLeD much better than [the institutional VLE], but would be even better if there was a forum”
  • “I have contributed to discussions set by the lecturer and was able to downloadreadings for class, after some difficulty at first”
developing the tools
Developing the tools
  • JISC LD4P (Liverpool Hope University, University of Bolton)
    • New user interface for the Reload IMS LD editor.
  • JISC D4LD (UK OU)
    • Improving IMS LD runtime for institutional use
  • JISC DesignShare (Liverpool Hope University, University of Bolton)
    • Sharing, discovery & re-use of IMS LD

summary
Summary
  • Need more usable authoring tools for experts
  • Non-experts need to use these tools with less support.
    • Maybe through simpler tools such as LAMS
    • Need to be able to make use of more sophisticated tools when they need them
  • Need (more) services
    • Widget server
  • Need more flexible tools- especially when running courses
