Learning environment
Learning Environment

  • Managed Learning Environments for Lifelong Learning: Building MLEs across FE and HE

    • Facilitating the seamless movement of learners across sectors and institutions

    • 2 large scale projects (NIIMLE and Shell)

    • Supporting studies surveying MLE activity and building learner profiles

  • Managed Learning Environments for Lifelong Learning 2

    • Build on the outcome of the two current projects

    • Make initial explorations of the wider aspects of linking MLEs


Learning environment1
Learning Environment

  • Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (SWaNI)

    • More later …..

  • Building MLEs in HE

    • Demonstrating the potential of MLEs to support learning and teaching

  • Linking Digital Libraries with Virtual Learning Environments (DiVLE)

    • 10 projects

    • Pedagogical and organisational issues

    • Technical exploration and curriculum focussed pilots


Update on swani
Update on SWaNI

  • MIS-VLE-MIS (Enterprise)

    • 4 projects

      • 3 VLE vendors

        • Granada Learnwise

        • Teknical

        • WebCT

      • 4 MIS vendors

        • Capita Dita

        • FD Learning

        • Microcompass

        • SITS


Update on swani1
Update on SWaNI

  • LIP (Learner Information Profile)

    • 2 projects

      • Scottish UFI and SITS

      • UFI and Teknical

  • Content interop and packaging

    • 1 project (large consortium)

      • Intrallect (digital repository)

      • FD

      • Learnwise

      • Teknical

      • Digital Brain

        • producers of some of the best NLN materials


What s being tested with enterprise spec
What’s being tested with Enterprise spec?

  • TEKNICAL

    • Capita Dita

    • Sits

    • FD

  • Granada Learnwise

    • Capita Dita

    • Microcompass

  • WebCT

    • Capita Dita


What s being tested with lip spec
What’s being tested with LIP spec?

  • Personal Development Planning

    • Updating the lifelong learning record

      • Commonality with the NIIMLE and Shell projects

    • Integration with SUfI and UfI

      • Allowing for complete learner log

  • Vertical MLE

    • Cross institution

    • Cross sector


How?

  • Transport mechanism

    • IMS have recommended the use of SOAP with attachments

    • Not all vendors are ready for this

  • Application Profiles

    • Need to ensure that the agreed profiles are appropriate for the different sectors

    • Regional FE extensions where necessary


Where we re up to
Where we’re up to

  • MIS/VLE

    • Agreed the application profiles

      • What we’re sending

      • In what format

    • Currently testing the app profiles

    • Agreed the transport mechanism

      • A number of different models

        • For testing purposes

      • All vendors committed to SOAP in future


Where we re up to1
Where we’re up to

  • Personal Development Planning

    • Ongoing process

    • Working with CRA

  • Content

    • Currently testing and reporting

    • Consortium have secured funding to continue this work


And the content
And the content?

  • Content packaging and metadata

    • Content produced by 5 different institutions in different formats and within different VLEs

      • Simple learning objects

      • Export/Import from vle to vle

        • Test results

        • Modify

        • Report

      • Export/Import from digital repository

    • Effectiveness of consortium approach


Issues arising
Issues arising

  • The projects’ perspective

    • Time

      • Projects too short – too much lead time

    • Money

      • There’s never enough 

    • Working with multiple vendors

      • Time consuming - herding cats 

      • Strengthened relationships

    • How was it for them?

      • Underestimated the complexity

      • Use to kick start further work at institutional level

      • Raised senior management awareness


Issues arising1
Issues arising

  • The JISC perspective

    • Need to better plan the timing of projects

    • Need to work with vendor partners at planning stage

    • Differences between FE and HE

      • In terms of capacity for such projects

      • In terms of expectations of projects

    • Horse and cart ……..


Cart horse cart
CART – HORSE - CART

  • Why are you doing this?

    • For the experience

      • Absolutely valid

        • As long as the experience leads to recognition of the need to change

    • A perceived need

      • Technology driving the change

        • Need to consider what you want to do and then consider the available AND appropriate technology/ies

  • Institutional buy-in

    • Business process re-engineering involves absolutely everyone

      • Top down and bottom up
