VLE/VRE/IE

Requirements

Each expert group is often influenced by a different field of research: VLE’s are influenced by Educational Technology experts, VRE’s are often influenced by Computer Scientists, while IE’s are influenced by Library Sciences.

When we treat Virtual Learning, Virtual Research, and Information Environments as different, we end up developing divergent environments which satisfy similar requirements in very different ways based on the experts who are funded to produce the VRE, VLE, or IE solutions.

VLE/VRE

Requirements

As painful as it may be, the VRE, VLE, and IE experts must begin to coordinate so that some point in the future, users don’t have environments with completely different approaches to the same problem.

why have a personal in personal learning research environment
Why have a “Personal” in personal Learning/Research Environment
  • Move from a provider or institution focused set of capabilities to an environment where users “assemble” their environment to suit their needs.
  • System that maps to how I think and operate so that things are made easier for me. How do I bend this tool to suit the way that I work? Especially as my skills as a user improve.
  • Move bits around arrange the way you like. This is both things like my own folder arrangements and things like accessibility (i.e. how I want to “see” these things)
similarity and differences
Similarity and Differences
  • Traditionally, there are some differences
  • Locus of control
  • Existing versus emerging information
  • Fixed versus fluid agenda
  • Different tools in use

Why not apply it all to learning and integrate it together?

The Personal Learning/Research Environment (PLRE) effectively adds a “productivity” layer to the VLE/VRE/IE space which unifies the look/feel/usability across the multiple sources of information

today s plre is a compromise
Today’s PLRE is a Compromise
  • Web browser with lots of bookmarks to many sites - each quite different
  • Computer desktop with files, folders
  • E-Mail client
  • Calendar client
  • … All quite different - user figures tools out as best they can and to the extent they can
someday the plre will not be a browser
Someday the PLRE will not be a browser

Better user experience

Increased productivity

More complex to build

Difficult to keep up with changing technology

a. pure html web page

b. web page based, but with browser enhancements

c. browser extension

d. dedicated desktop network client

e. extensible desktop application platform

f. common desktop application

promising trends
Promising Trends
  • Standards based portals - JSR-168, etc.
  • API standardisation
  • Basic look and feel standardisation - CSS
  • Federating portals - WSRP
  • User control over assembly of many sources
  • Ability to write portable full-featured tools
  • Java
  • Eclipse
  • Flash MX
high level recommendations
High Level Recommendations
  • Continue to invest in VLE/VRE/IE efforts, accepting the fact that for the moment they will not converge immediately
  • Continue to invest in portals and WSRP activities to explore federation within current presentation technologies
  • Invest in research into new technologies to federate information sources beyond the browser.
  • Act to maintain communication between the VLE/VRE/IE and PLRE efforts so that common solutions can be shared and evolved over time.
more recommendations
More Recommendations
  • Investigate techniques for the learner/researcher to “own” their information over their lifetime and “share” it with institutions and groups at the appropriate time.
  • Encourage projects which support flexible roles and structures (i.e. not just instructor can write and students can read or anyone can create groups)
  • Investigate techniques where PLRE’s can operate in both connected and disconnected modes
