Transcript

  • 1. From LMS to PLE: The OpenLearn Test-bed<br />Dr Alexander Mikroyannidis<br />The Open University, UK<br />
  • 2. The OpenLearn project<br /><ul><li>OpenLearn (http://openlearn.open.ac.uk) is a Moodle-based LMS, consisting of two distinct learning areas: LearningSpaceand LabSpace.
  • 3. LearningSpace includes Open Educational Resources (OER) organised in standalone learning units, plus social software and discussion forums to enable collaboration and group work.
  • 4. LabSpace has an experimental and developmental nature; users can submit their own content, as well as remix and reuse the resources available. </li></li></ul><li>OpenLearn courses &amp; tools<br />
  • 5. Learner-centric approach<br /><ul><li>OpenLearn has been built around units of study and not the personal profiles of learners; a learner-centric approach is missing
  • 6. Learners do not get any guidance about how to learn on their own, neither from technology, nor from peers
  • 7. Learners need support to plan and control their learning journey
  • 8. ROLE goal: Provide recommendations to learners about resources and other learners (‘study-buddies’)</li></li></ul><li>Tools and personalisation<br /><ul><li>Tools currently available in OpenLearn:
  • 9. Videoconferencing (FlashMeeting)
  • 10. Sensemaking (Compendium, Cohere)
  • 11. Blogs
  • 12. Forums
  • 13. Learning clubs
  • 14. Generally disconnected from learning units
  • 15. ROLE goals:
  • 16. Allow learners to gain control over the manipulation and production of content through tools
  • 17. Enable learners to bring in their own tools and personalise their learning environment</li></li></ul><li>Social interactions<br /><ul><li>The learning content currently provided by OpenLearn is comprised of standalone units, which are generally not being studied in a social context
  • 18. Lack of support for social interactions
  • 19. ROLE goals:
  • 20. Provide support to learners for community building and collaborative activities
  • 21. A shared learning experience instead of a lone study</li></li></ul><li>ROLE widgets in OpenLearn<br />Learners aggregate and work collaborativelyon learning resources provided by the Open University (e.g. OpenLearn, iTunesU) and external sources (e.g. Wikipedia, SlideShare, YouTube)<br />© www.role-project.eu<br />
  • 22. From LMS to PLE<br /><ul><li>The OpenLearn transition from the LMS towards the PLE paradigm aims in:
  • 23. A richer and more personalized learning experience
  • 24. Support for self-regulated learning
  • 25. Social networking and community-building
  • 26. Openness and adaptivity of the learning environment</li></ul>Image sources:<br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/appleweywey/2765552356/<br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/smannion/2949490218/<br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/hanspoldoja/4098840001/ <br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/petahopkins/2157928982/<br />
