This slide show describes how to get started using CompendiumLD, a tool for creating visual representations of learning activities.
Teachers and media developers go through a complex decision making process when designing new learning experiences – working towards an effective pedagogical mix, combining resources, tools, student and tutor support.
For an individual media developer or teacher, the process of creating a visual map of a learning activity clarifies their own understanding of the mix. For teams comprised of individuals focused on different aspects, a visual representation supports communication about issues that need to be resolved before the activity is delivered to students.

  • 1. Getting started with CompendiumLD
  • 2. Introduction
    This guide focuses on howto use CompendiumLD to create a visual representation of  a learning activity.
    If you haven't already created a project and logged in, see the 'Getting started ' page on the CompendiumLD web site which will guide you through the process of creating your first CompendiumLD project and logging in.
  • 3. First screen
    When you first start CompendiumLD and log in, it will look like this
  • 4. Working area
    This is the working area
  • 5. Nodes
    These elements are called ‘nodes’
  • 6. Learning design node stencil
    On the left hand side is the learning design node stencil
  • 7. Basic operation
    Following this slide is a short video ( < 2 minutes long) showing you how to carry out some basic functions in CompendiumLD.
    This video shows how to create, edit and link nodes.
  • 8. Creating a learning design (1)
    Now we will look at how CompendiumLD can be used to create maps of learning activities. To begin, look at this example of a learning activity map.
    This map contains just a few of the types of learning design nodes provided by CompendiumLD.
  • 9. Creating a learning design (2)
    Role: shows who is to perform the tasks
    Task: the tasks to be carried out
    Resource: a resource (e.g. a document or movie) to be used in the learning activity
    Tool: any tool that is used in the learning activity , e.g. forum, blog, wiki
    Stop: the end of the activity – all the learning outcomes should have been met by now!
  • 10. Creating a learning design
    The next video shows how to design learning activities using CompendiumLD ( < 5 minutes long)
  • 11. Adding timing information to designs
    There is a movie which will give you an idea of how you can add timing information. This shows the prototype, not the current version.
    A movie showing the latest version will be added soon.
