  • 1. Sustainable Information Management for Personal Learning Environments ORS meeting Julià Minguillón Computer Science, Multimedia and Telecommunication Studies Universitat Oberta de Catalunya MTSR'07 Corfu, Greece
  • 2. Definitions
    • By sustainable we mean
    • “ continuously providing the learner with the appropriate information depending on the available sources, the device he/she is using, his/her preferences and particularities, and the context”
    • By information we mean
    • “ any content, activity or service which guides the learner through the learning process towards his/her learning goals”
    MTSR'07 Corfu, Greece
  • 3. Key issues
    • Virtual learning environments are getting sophisticated:
      • Personalization issues
      • Standards and specifications for interoperability
      • New architectures based on services
      • (Open) contents are everywhere
      • Breaking the producer / consumer barrier
      • Towards a new semantic of the learning process
    • Learning is not making contents available! (D. Wiley)
    • VLEs need to provide learners with true learning experiences
    MTSR'07 Corfu, Greece
  • 4. Virtual learning environments
    • Condemned to death if:
      • not open or proprietary
      • not standard compliant and interoperable
      • not service based and extendable
      • not accessible
      • not personalizable
    • Current and future learners are net natives:
      • technology “addicts”
      • multiple identities
      • all-in-one context: personal, academic, professional
    MTSR'07 Corfu, Greece
  • 5. Openness: aspects to take into account
    • As defined in OLCOS ( ):
      • Technological (what can we do?)
      • Methodological (how do we do it?)
      • Legal (can we do it?)
      • Economical (who will pay for?)
      • Social (why should we do it?)
    • No “when?” question: NOW!
    • No “where?” question: EVERYWHERE!
    MTSR'07 Corfu, Greece
  • 6. Future trends
    • Everybody is a lifelong learner
    • Competence transfer between personal, academic and professional contexts
    • Search, create, mix, use, post paradigm:
      • Contents
      • Services
    • VLEs will become personal spaces where learners aggregate the elements they need
    • Semantics will ensure the quality of the learning process
    • Towards a web science of e-learning (W. Hall)
