Topics
  • Bielefeld University / Library, Germany – background information
  • Role(s) of and challenges for academic libraries
  • Libraries and eLearning
  • eLearning – a range of concepts
  • Introducing eLearning at universities – conceptual and implementation aspects
  • Outlook at Bielefeld University
slide3
Bielefeld University Library, Germany – background information I
  • University: 14 faculties with particular emphasis on interdisciplinarity
  • Library founded in 1967
  • One central on-site library, divided into groups of subject based libraries
  • Close spatial proximity of library reading rooms and faculty facilities
  • 2 Mio books and other media items, the majority for open access
  • Long opening hours: Mo-Fri until 1 am, Sa-Su until 10 pm
  • 180 FTEs and PTEs
slide6
Bielefeld University Library, Germany – a Centre for Technical Innovation II
  • 1977 Implementation of IBAS as the first online cataloguing system in Germany
  • 1987 CD-ROM OPAC, the first German university library catalogue on CD-ROM
  • 1998-2000 Development and Implementation of the Digital Library North Rhine-Westphalia
  • 2003 Major activities (national and EU) to test and introduce web search technology for indexing and integrated access in the digital library sector (partnering with FAST Search & Transfer ASA, Norway)
slide7
Role(s) of and challenges for academic libraries
  • University Library
    • Decreasing staff and financial resources
    • Running local/physical AND online libraries
  • (The major) central academic service
    • Requests to take on additional roles
    • Duplication of work/competences – the need to collaborate with other central services
    • Relationship central – central and central - decentral
  • Centre for / participant in external innovative information service/infrastructure developments
slide8
Libraries and eLearning I
  • Library resources as source material for eLearning courses
  • Integrate eLearning objects into information access systems (online catalogues, subject portals/gateways)
  • eLearning objects may get scholarly “publication” status
  • Archiving of eLearning objects
slide9
Libraries and eLearning II
  • Strategic decision: position the library as central academic service beyond traditional tasks
  • Redeploy didactic competences of libraries at the university
  • Redefine activities for librarians
slide10
eLearning – a range of concepts and scenario I
  • Didactical concepts / usage scenarios – the need for a commitment of faculties / authors
  • Replacement or new forms of eTeaching?
  • Online learning or learning material online?
    • Electronic organisation of seminars/courses -Electronic course material for current seminars
    • eLearning objects as course independent modules, both subject specific and interdisciplinary
    • Communication with participants
    • Performance test of and usage statistics
slide11
eLearning – a range of concepts II
  • Restricted or free access?
  • eLearning platforms can support international networks/collaboration
  • Relationship of concept and technical infrastructure (system platform), e.g. process- or content-centred
slide12
Introducing eLearning at Universities I
  • Focus at Bielefeld University – Integration of eLearning
  • Task Force of central academic services to analyse university wide information system infrastructure
  • eLearning system – other university information systems (library, computing service, central administration)
    • All-in-one or modular system architecture?
    • University portal discussion
    • Functionality overflow – the need for a comprehensive analysis of university systems (e.g. other electronic course directories, calendars, chatrooms, video-conferencing)

slide21
Introducing eLearning at Universities II
  • Evaluation and selection of a system platform
    • Reuse of existing evaluations (e.g. Schulmeister, Vienna/Munich: 171 platforms; UNESCO Free Software Portal “Courseware Tools”)
    • Define local specifications
    • Define a set of core functionalities /k.o.-criteria 
slide22
Introducing eLearning at Universities III

A set of core functionalities /k.o.-criteria:

  • Non-functional
    • Platform independent
    • Web based
    • Scalable and robust
    • Import and Export of data (based on standards, e.g. IMS, LOM, SCORM, OKI)
    • Flexible and open programming interfaces (integration aspect)
    • Data security
    • Intuitive user interface for course instructors and users
    • Documentation and support
slide23
Introducing eLearning at Universities IV

Define a set of core functionalities /k.o.- criteria:

  • Functional
    • User administration (authentication mechanisms, different user groups with different rights levels)
    • Communication (asynchrone: e-mail, forums, synchrone: chat, whiteboard)
    • Content management / administration of courses (structuring of course content, modular structure)
    • Set up, performance and assessment of tests
  • Systems evaluated in Bielefeld: Blackboard, WebCT, Clix Campus, Illias (open source, Cologne University); other systems: Bodington, Stellar etc.
slide24
Introducing eLearning at Universities V

Temporary and permanent resources required, mainly:

  • Didactical advice and guidance
  • “Marketing” within (and outside) the university
  • Tutorials and support for course instructors
  • Content creation (e.g. interactive, multimedia)
  • System installation and day-to-day operation (24/7 service)
  • Further programming (system integration, interaction)
  • eLearning platform (licensing or open-source, soft- and hardware, maintenance)
slide25
Outlook at Bielefeld University
  • eLearning – decision at the University IT-Committee
  • Institutional scholarly publication server
  • Central Digital Object Server
  • Web Search Technology
  • Campus wide metadirectory service
  • ?Central authoring / conversion tools
  • ???
