Learning Enhancement Support System

  1. 1. LESS for More Learning Enhancement Support System
  2. 2. What is LESS? <ul><li>An idea: expanded to Learning Enhancement Support System </li></ul><ul><li>Probably another name for the One-Stop Educational Portal </li></ul><ul><li>Support student learning </li></ul><ul><li>Provide testing services, remedial learning support, and student tracking </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive system with additional facilities to provide interaction with experts </li></ul><ul><li>System does not really replace the existing systems, but further enhances their quality </li></ul>
  3. 3. Learning Object Strategy <ul><li>Suggested by the three member sub-committee </li></ul><ul><li>Learning object is a digital resource that can be used to support learning </li></ul><ul><li>Anatomy of a learning object: </li></ul>Text Audio Video Animation Graphics Pages Frames Digital Assets Information Objects Learning Object
  4. 4. Information Objects <ul><li>May be: </li></ul><ul><li>Content items </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment items (both for practice as well as test) </li></ul><ul><li>Generic items such as introduction, learning outcomes, summary, keywords, references </li></ul>
  5. 5. Learning Objects <ul><li>Consists of </li></ul><ul><li>Overview/ Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Learning outcomes (one for each content items) </li></ul><ul><li>Content items </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment items (for practice) </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment items (for test of both pre- and post-test type) </li></ul><ul><li>Summary, keywords, references </li></ul>
  6. 6. Metadata <ul><li>LO also needs appropriate metadata to: </li></ul><ul><li>Identify and retrieve them </li></ul><ul><li>Share and collaborate </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata elements required are: </li></ul><ul><li>Reuse information </li></ul><ul><li>Retrieval information </li></ul><ul><li>Tracking information </li></ul>
  7. 7. Technology suggested Back-end users Teachers Content authors Editors Administrators Media designers LO Server LCMS Text Animation Metadata Authoring And Management System IGNOU Server Internet link Learners One-Stop Education Portal
  8. 8. Skill Demand <ul><li>Web designing </li></ul><ul><li>Multimedia </li></ul><ul><li>Animation </li></ul><ul><li>Java and XML </li></ul><ul><li>LCMS/LMS </li></ul><ul><li>Digital audio and video </li></ul><ul><li>Database handling </li></ul><ul><li>Many more… </li></ul><ul><li>Demands team work </li></ul><ul><li>Assumes high technology maturation </li></ul>
  9. 9. Distance Teacher <ul><li>Difficult to combine all the skills </li></ul><ul><li>Can become the content experts </li></ul><ul><li>Also can support the instructional design component, including chunking and preparing assessment items </li></ul><ul><li>Type of questions that could be accommodated include: short answer type, multiple choice, true-false, fill in the blanks and sequencing </li></ul>
  10. 10. Generic Information for Preparing Questions <ul><li>Identification no. </li></ul><ul><li>Language </li></ul><ul><li>Subject code </li></ul><ul><li>Topic code </li></ul><ul><li>Level (target audience) </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-requisites </li></ul><ul><li>Table of specification code </li></ul><ul><li>Cognitive process code </li></ul><ul><li>Item type </li></ul><ul><li>Performance record about this items </li></ul>
  11. 11. Specific Item Dependent Data <ul><li>Multiple Choice </li></ul><ul><li>Question/ item stem </li></ul><ul><li>Options (1 to 4/5) </li></ul><ul><li>Score/ weight </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback on each options </li></ul><ul><li>Additional support on each option (links to LO (internal or external) </li></ul><ul><li>Identification of correct answer </li></ul>
  12. 12. Specific Item Dependent Data <ul><li>Short Answer </li></ul><ul><li>Question/ item </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested answer/ Hints </li></ul><ul><li>Additional support on each option (links to LO (internal or external) </li></ul><ul><li>Links to experts (possibly) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Just an Example Which type of microphone is sensitive to sound coming from half the environment to which it is pointing : <ul><li>Ribbon </li></ul><ul><li>Omnidirectional </li></ul><ul><li>Cardiod </li></ul><ul><li>Gun </li></ul>
  14. 14. Feedback Sorry, you got it wrong. Ribbon microphones are sensitive to physical shock and are suitable for recording in controlled environment. More…
  15. 15. Feedback No. As the name suggest omnidirectional microphones are sensitive to sound coming from any direction. More…
  16. 16. Feedback Correct. Cardioid mics are unidirectional and thus, are sensitive to sound coming from half the environment to which it is pointing. More…
  17. 17. Feedback No, this is not correct. As you know Gun mics are used for avoiding environmental noise and are sensitive to only a narrow angle of sound. More…
