MLE Developers Pack


  • The MLE Developer’s pack will provide a single, coherent source of information for institutions that are interested in the development process for an institutional or cross-institutional Managed Learning Environment.
  • addressing the problem of disseminating and achieving programme aims
  • To access project materials, they needs to be organized and presented in way that allows the user to:-

-understand all the steps and issues involved in developing an MLE;

-dip in to relevant sections, depending where they are up to in the implementation process;

-drill down the information to a supporting layer of practical example, guidance and tools.

  • will not claim to be ‘the right or only way ‘ to create a MLE, but will emphasis the different approaches taken and options available.
  • It will follow a process model, and attempt to provide step-by-step advice for institutions that are already, or are planning to, develop a MLE (as far as this is possible);
  • It will be based upon the key issues for MLE development identified by the MLE projects so far;
  • It will be much more detailed and provide practical advice and guidance rather than just brief overviews;

It will closely refer to other reports and tools that have been produced, particularly by JISC-funded projects and will provide the main route into those resources;

It will also refer to other relevant reports and studies, e.g. JCALT and TechWatch reports.

The pack will be developed so that the framework can be expanded and developed further as new information and resources arise. This is important given that MLE is a developing concept.

Case studies – this is how we tackled it

why we wanted an mle
Why we wanted an MLE

Why did your institution decide it wanted to move in this direction?

What were the drivers – external? Political? Internal? Particular ideas or vision?

What was (is) the overall aim?

How did it go about making a decision to do this?

Who was involved? how were any advantages and disadvantages discussed? What institutional strategies were involved? What methods did it use – consultation, meetings, questionnaires etc?

how did we do things before we began work on the mle
How did we do things before we began work on the MLE?

What state was your institution in when you began the project?

–how did things work then? (paper based/technology based systems?)

–how did you find out/analyse/model things as they were? (systems analysis, focus gps, questionnaires, modeling, talking etc)

Who were the key knowledge holders and how did you involve them?

What technologies did the institution have in place?

Did you use any formal methodologies?

What did you learn? – that your approach worked well?, that you didn’t pay enough attention to certain things? etc? How did you capture and represent these models
