    • 1. Ηλεκτρονικές Υπηρεσίες Μάθησης για την Περιφερειακή Ανάπτυξη περίπτωση μελέτης αποθετηρίων εκπαιδευτικού περιεχομένου αγροτικού ενδιαφέροντος Δρ. Νίκος Μανουσέλης Εθνικό Δίκτυο Έρευνας & Τεχνολογίας (ΕΔΕΤ)
    • 2. introduction
    • 3. learning object
      • "any entity, digital or non-digital, that may be used for learning , education or training "
        • ΙΕΕΕ Learning Technology Standards Committee (2002)
    • 4. http://www.soilassociation.org

    • 8. learning repositories
      • digital repository: system for the storage , location and retrieval of digital resources
      • digital learning repository (DLR):
        • nature of resources or their description reflects an interest of use in an educational context
        • Holden C., “From Local Challenges to a Global Community: Learning Repositories Summit”, Academic ADL Co-Lab, 2003
    • 9. interesting (?) questions
      • do existing, generic learning repositories have content of agricultural interest?
        • do they have a lot?
      • are there learning repositories focusing particularly to agricultural & rural stakeholders?
        • where are they?
    • 10. problem outline
    • 11. preliminary study
      • took place during 2005 (time to repeat it now…)
      • examined 59 well-known repositories
        • found in 27 of them (~45%) agricultural content
      • BUT
      • in a total of ~881,000 educational resources:
        • … only 3,201 resources (0.36%) related to agricultural topics
        • Tzikopoulos et al., "Investigating Digital Learning Repositories' Coverage of Agriculture-related Topics", ITAFE 2005.
    • 12. subject classification 34.5% of resources not particularly classified
    • 13. so we assume that…
      • learning repositories that particularly focus on agricultural & rural stakeholders
        • should probably have more relevant content
        • should probably have it better described/categorized
    • 14. but, do they exist?
    • 15.
      • how can someone find agricultural learning resources online?
      • can someone search for them from a single point of access
      • … more work is required
      more interesting questions
    • 16. federations
    • 17. what are they?
      • learning repository federations
        • interconnecting learning repositories
        • facilitate metadata exchange
        • allow searching throughout whole federation
    • 18. generic examples
    • 19. any agricultural ones?
      • Not yet... (but people are working on it)

    • 20.  
    • 21. about
      • builds a federation of learning repositories with content on Organic Agriculture (OA) & Agroecology (AE)
      • EU’s e Content plus Programme
        • Targeted Project
        • 36 months [1/10/2007-30/9/2010]
      • 4.800.000 euros budget
        • 2.400.000 euros funding (50%)
    • 22. rationale
      • irreversible damage done to the environment by current agricultural practices
        • soil and water pollution
        • depletion of natural resources
        • destruction of delicate ecosystems
        • “… need for actions supporting the training and education of all stakeholders related to OA …”
        • EU Action Plan for Organic Food & Farming, 2004
    • 23. objectives (1/5)
      • support stakeholders producing content about OA & AE
        • describe according to multilingual, standard-complying metadata
        • publish in online federation of learning repositories
    • 24. objectives (2/5)
      • deploy a multilingual online environment on top of the online federation of repositories
        • to facilitate end-users’ search, retrieval, access and use of learning resources
      • the Organic.Edunet Web portal
    • 25. objectives (3/5)
      • study educational scenarios to support the teaching of OA & AE relevant topics
        • use Organic.Edunet Web portal to find learning resources in the repositories
      • targeted user organisations
        • schools
        • agricultural universities
    • 26. objectives (4/5)
      • involve various schools & universities to evaluate project results
        • focused pilot trials within partner institutions
        • open validation events within affiliated institutions
    • 27. objectives (5/5)
      • create organisational structures to support the sustainability of project results
        • reinforce the cooperation of stakeholders in the OA & AE content area
    • 28. metadata application profile IEEE LOM mapping to other metadata schemas (IEEE LOM, Dublin Core , application profiles) ontology-based searching (e.g. thematic, geographical) social navigation based on user feedback ( e.g. ratings, tags , recommendations ) OAI-PMH harvesting OAI-PMH, SQI
    • 29. progress so far…
      • e-portfolio software for learning repository set-up & organisation
        • http:// oe.confolio.org /
      • Organic.Edunet Web Portal
        • http://portal.organic-edunet.eu
    • 30.  
    • 31. how can it work?
    • 32. imagine
      • Greek island
        • olive trees
        • local olive oil
        • … sun, nature, clean beaches
      … or maybe NOT ?
    • 33. a (hypothetical?) problem
      • leftovers from local olive processing - oil production facility pollute nearby river
        • eventually find their way to the sea
    • 34. in the school (1/2)
      • teacher in nearby highschool wants to raise awareness about this problem
        • show consequences to children
        • introduce them to alternative methods
      • searches through Organic.Edunet
        • finds a Cretan river case
    • 35.  
    • 36. in the school (2/3)
      • a similar collaborative outdoor activity is organized
      • children split in groups, study various effects, e.g.
        • quality of water in river
        • quality of water in nearby beach
    • 37. in the school (3/3)
      • children produce their own content
        • … photos, video, pictures, report on findings, class presentation on alternative olive processing,…
        • uploaded to Organic.Edunet
      • other schools may access them online
        • exchange of results/experiences
    • 38. conclusion
    • 39. potential
      • agricultural learning resources: useful
      • having them organised in learning repositories: good
      • exploring ways to introduce them into formal and informal education & training
        • challenging and worthwhile
    • 40. challenges
      • technical issues
        • mainly interoperability
          • requires standards, technologies, protocols
      • agricultural content providers lagging behind
        • expertise
        • training
        • motivation
        • time
