  • 5. Is this how you feel:-0
  • 6. It is the future of the internet
    • And the Semantic Web is driven by STANDARDS:
    • .. Such as SCORM (shareable content object reference model (created by the ADL) that tells us how:
    • √ Content can be aggregated (and dis-aggregated) (Content Aggregation Model)
    • √ Content is launched and learner progress is tracked (Run Time Enviornment)
    • √ Content is sequenced and navigated.
  • 7. SCORM is used in
    • Learning Objects…
    • … . “any digital resource that can be reused to mediate learning”
  • 8. Learning objects have actions:
    • Repurpose
      • Use a digital learning resource in a new way or context
    • Reuse
      • Use a digital learning resource in a new context or setting
      • Also used to mean repurpose
    • Adopt
      • Use a digital learning resource without changing it
    • Adapt
      • Modify a digital learning resource for reuse
    • Interoperate
      • Plug and play
      • Properly exchange data or information
  • 9. A learning object can be…
    • An image
    • A document
    • An online course
    • A simulation
    • A virtual world
  • 10. Learning objects can be generated by learners…
    • .. who learn in a community of practice (CoP)
  • 11. CoPs are …
    • “… a process of social learning that occurs when people who have a common interest in some subject or problem collaborate over an extended period to share ideas, find solutions, and build innovations.”
  • 12. CoPs can be virtual, e.g…
    • Engineering CoPs
    • OpenCourse
    • eduspaces
  • 13. These ideas illustrate the shift
    • From

    • Where do you see evidence of this trend today?
    • How might one of these trends relate to your topic?
  • 16. Literature review
    • Post topic description to Topic Discussion
    • Start working on mini-literature review
