Title: Critical facilities for active participation in learning networks

Critical facilities for active participation in
learning networks

Context and approach
  • Technology Development Program Learning Networks
    (2003-2008) (extra)
  • Initial experiences with pilot implementations of
    LN architecture, i.e. LN4LD pilot 1 (paper)
  • -Information ecology perspective
  • -OSOSS facilities for (active) participation
  • Incentive mechanisme LN4LD pilot 2 (extra)

  • Learning Networks use technology to network
    learners, institutions and learning objects in
    such a way that the network can self-organise
  • Learning Networks (LNs) are two-mode networks
    represented as a graph with nodes, where the
    nodes are LN members and Activity Nodes (ANs)
  • ANs can be anything that is available to support
    learning, such as a course, a workshop, a
    conference, a lesson, an internet learning
    resource, et cetera
  • Central to the notion of a Learning Network is
    the idea that all participants are in a position
    to contribute, within the constraints of any
    policies that may be operating

Platform pilots
  • Base reqs open source, java based, open
    pedagogy
  • (out of scope for pilot) general portal with LNs
  • Each LN modelled, e.g. in PHP Nuke
  • Each AN modelled, e.g. in Moodle (including
    services)
  • LN seeded with initial set of ANs to get things
    going
  • LN further supposed to develop / emerge through
    contributions ratings

Objectives
  • LN4LD pilots have three objectives
  • To gain early feedback on functional, technical
    and organisational aspects of creating and
    maintaining a learning network
  • To help meet the demand for further information
    on IMS Learning Design from those wishing to
    understand the specification, or who are engaged
    in its application (UNFOLD project)
  • To investigate incentive mechanisms which
    stimulate learners to move beyond mere
    consumption of learning materials towards active
    participation in the creation of learning
    experiences

LN4LD pilot 1 (june-sept 2004) increase in
participants
17
LN4LD pilot 1 some participation data
  • Participants 104 registered, but 58 never
    accessed 20 regular visitors
  • Passive 21,011 page views, 427 downloads
  • Active 24 post in general forums (Nuke) 24
    posts in course forums (Moodle)

18
LN4LD pilot 1 Lessons learned
  • Transparent Policies e.g. lower threshold
  • Better Usability e.g. Nuke out
  • Less Structure e.g. less fora
  • Explicit Reward e.g. mechanism for extra access

19
LN4LD pilot 2 (oct 04 jan 05) reward system
  • (Because of time and technical constraints)
    simple interrupted time series design with
    removal consecutive treatments gt flexible within
    the life time of the learning network
  • First treatment incentive mechanism for extra
    access
  • Quantitative qualitative points to be earned
    for contributing (posting, replying, rating)
  • Extra access to runnable examples of UoL in
    CopperCore beyond threshold level of points
