  • Ken Currie CAPDM Limited Edinburgh, UK P3 – CAPDM Ltd. TEGENGEN Start-up Meeting Gödöllö 13 th November 2008
  • Introduction
    • We are experts in XML, semantic mark-up, information architectures & management, and e-publishing.
    • CAPDM helps education providers develop global businesses in education. This means:
      • Custom programme and blended product design.
      • Single source publishing and knowledge management.
      • Delivery worldwide in all media (including accessible formats) and any VLE.
    • We work across the entire flexible learning spectrum :
  • Named after a Model
  • Customer Case: EBS eMBA
      • Edinburgh Business School eMBA programme
          • Europe’s largest distance learning MBA programme.
          • The world's most international MBA programme by volume.
          • 10,000 successful MBA graduates from 150 countries.

          • 800 different deliverables for 37 released courses in print and online.
          • 20 million words of English; 8,000 multi-lingual vector diagrams and sundry other media objects.
          • 12 year unbroken record of coordinated XML single source publishing and update management.
          • Has earned over £120 million
          • Now on its third VLE – but not a single character has had to change to accommodate these moves!
  • Domains of Content
    • Integrate all kinds of content into a managed domain
      • Each bit of content can know about any other
        • produce highly linked & integrated outputs
        • Include diagrams & other media objects
      • Integrate the processes and systems
      • Include processes for designing, authoring, producing, validating, updating, access & delivery
    • Content creation, updating & management on an institutional footing
      • Single source publishing = ‘gold’ masters
  • Learning Environments
    • Rich content development with an information architecture offers an agnostic approach to VLEs
      • Deliver into any VLE
    • VLEs are transient technologies: content is high-value and of long lifetime
      • Deliver into the VLE (or VLEs)
      • Do not develop within , or for , the VLE
      • Develop learning content to match the need, not the technology
      • Many universities are now on their 2 nd or 3 rd generation VLE
  • Changing publishing workflows: XML based publishing ALPSP Seminar British Dental Association, London. 13 th March 2008
  • Digital Repositories
    • “ The ‘e-Government Agenda’ in the UK, the DFES e-Learning strategy and the wider European Union context seeks to embrace and maximise consistent creation and delivery, use and reuse …” Source: JISC
    • This requires standards for interoperability and a semantically rich mark-up – XML + DTD(s)
      • Designs, formal structures, consistent outputs, etc.
  • Semantic mark-up in XML
  • The EBS domain is based on an information architecture ALPSP Seminar British Dental Association, London. 13 th March 2008
  • Beliefs
    • Also cynical about e-learning
    • Big believer in good pedagogical designs and good content
    • A computer scientist for 35 years but never influenced by the technology
      • ‘ Fitness for purpose’
    • Web 2.0? Some doubts
    • Semantic Web? To be exploited (SLE)
  • Programme design - onion
  • Learning Objectives
  • Example content synergy: Interactivity spectrum ALPSP Seminar British Dental Association, London. 13 th March 2008
  • It’s an age thing!
  • Emacs -> XML
    • “ Change by increment”
      • Emacs has worked for me in the past
      • Will XML work for the future?
