Title: Elearning Programme Framework and tools


1
E-learning Programme Framework and tools
  • Tish Roberts
  • JISC Programme Manager
  • t.roberts_at_jisc.ac.uk

2
MLEs
  • JISC work in MLE development has shown
  • very bespoke, institutional specific,
  • Battle of giant system (VLE, LMS, SRS )
    duplication of functionality
  • Complicated and expensive
  • Very limited transfer of development outcomes
  • lack of pedagogical flexibility and innovation in
    the design of e-learning tools, environments and
    architectures.

3
Current educational technology developments
  • Convergence of approach around
  • SOA and web services
  • Maturing educational standards
  • International developments OKI, u-Portal, COLIS
    etc.

4
Framework
  • A technical framework for e-learning would
    enable -
  • FE and HE institutions to create MLE
    architectures to support their particular
    e-learning strategies
  • The production of architectures based on
    standards to enable interoperability
  • The provision of a common basis (understanding)
    for future developments
  • The JISC to identify gaps or major barriers to
    progress (pain points) on which it can focus
    development activity.

5
Benefits
  • To teachers and learners
  • Supporting pedagogic diversity
  • Enabling pedagogy-driven implementations
  • To institutions by
  • Making collaboration between institutions easier
  • Providing better returns on technology investment
  • Enabling faster deployment of technology
  • Providing a modular and flexible technology base.

6
E-Learning Programme
  • The JISC Committee for Learning and Teaching
    (JCLT) is funding a new e-Learning Programme to
    run until August 2007.
  • The overarching aim of the e-learning Programme
    is to identify how e-learning approaches might be
    used to facilitate learning and to advise on how
    these approaches might be effectively
    implemented.
  • The Programme focuses on three areas e-learning
    and Pedagogy Technical Frameworks and tool and
    Innovation.

7
E-Learning Programme Aims Objectives
  • Aims
  • Provide the FE and HE community with accurate,
    up-to-date and research- or evidence-based
    information about effective practice in the use
    of e-learning applications.
  • Promote the application and development of
    e-learning tools and standards to better support
    effective practice.
  • Develop and evaluate a framework to facilitate
    interoperability across learning, teaching,
    research and their supporting systems.
  • Consider and promote the use of innovative
    technologies and models to support e-learning.

8
Programme Structure
  • 3 years and approx 1½ million
  • Technical development projects
  • Demonstrator projects
  • Supporting studies

9
Technical Development project strand
  • 3 x 6mth pure technical development (800K)
  • Not creating application, but integration
    toolkits
  • No expectation of implementation
  • Output Open Source toolkits for community re-use

10
Demonstration projects
  • 18 months (3x6mth?) testing toolkits in anger
    (600k)
  • implement and pilot toolkits in and/or between
    institution
  • FE/HE partnership and Vendor participation would
    be encouraged
  • commence when the first round of technical
    projects have produced their deliverables
    (toolkits) in autumn 2004.

11
Supporting Studies
  • 5 x 3mth desk studies (30K each)
  • Reviewing technology or Investigating issues
    coming out of programme activity to inform
    programme planning and direction, for example -
  • Desk Top Study The Review and mapping of a
    defined set of e-learning development activity
  • Aim- collate, analyse, and map a defined set of
    relevant e-learning technology development
    activity to the e-Learning technical
    framework.Deadline for proposals Friday 23rd
    April 2004.

12
Programme Outputs
  • E-Learning Framework (defined services, their
    spec/standards/, OS toolkits,suporting
    documentation pointer to project/applications/etc
    )
  • Distribution Kit (OS toolkits open source
    applications, and supporting documentation,)
    basic structure of an e-Learning system or MLE.
  • E-Learning InfoKIT ( Creating MLE InfoKit
    style resource, containing ALL programme output
    and outcomes, with practical advice and guidance

15
Framework Projects
  • Providing a reference set of service definitions
  • Providing toolkits to assist developers
  • Coordinating related efforts such as standards
    and shared services development

16
Toolkits
  • Provide libraries (not complete applications) to
    support deployment of services and service
    consumers
  • Support development of both commercial and
    open-source applications
  • Enable deployment of service-oriented
    architectures within education
  • Aim to demonstrate practical web service
    architecture

Back to Tish
23
Programme support
  • Implementation consultant
  • Communication and dissemination
  • Website and development bay

24
Implementation consultant
  • Provide expert advice, guidance and a technical
    support infrastructure to projects testing and
    implementing standards.
  • Collate project results and feedback into
    programmes developmental cycle, consultation
    processes and dissemination activity.
