  18. 18. Recommendations(Teachers and Students)<br />Improve ergonomics in general<br />Reduce the number of click<br />The navigation should be intuitive (more drag and drop)<br />The wording of the tools are not sufficiently explicit <br />Comparisons with Facebook and Google come back regularly<br />Improving consistency of tools : in particular between Osyl and other Sakai tools<br />Encourage exchanges between VLE and external tools (email, Web 2.0) <br />
  19. 19. Recommendations(Teachers and Students)<br />Better organize the content and tools<br />Better identify functional areas of each tool<br />Make home pages similar to WebCT (with access via icons)<br />Structuring content and activities in a hierarchical fashion<br />Conditional Access to content<br />
  20. 20. Recommendations (Teachers and Students)<br />OpenSyllabus: many suggestions to make it evolve<br />Improved printing functionality<br />Better integration with other tools in Sakai<br />Avoid multiple entries : calendar, assessments information<br />More possibility of customization and more flexibility <br />Automatically feed the syllabus with directory information, fraud and plagiarism, etc.<br />Improving the management of citations : ability to add sub sections and ability to allow multiple styles<br />
  21. 21. Next Steps considering this experiment<br />Opensyllabus<br />Better interaction with other sakai tools (entity picker)<br />Better interaction with other University services (library, official course description, learning support)<br />More flexibility (re-organize sections and rubrics)<br />Possibility for Department to create its own template<br />Better translation adapted to our specific french canadian context<br />Harmonization of all the terms among all the tools<br /> Studying the accessibility with the Support Office for Students with Disabilities<br />
  22. 22. Next Steps considering this experiment<br />Preparing training and support<br />Training workshops<br />Personal coaching for teachers<br />Contextualized User Guide and Help<br />Screen cast<br />Best practices models<br /> Progressively selecting the most appropriated tools<br />Defining the public view of the courses (syllabus and content)<br /> Strengthening the personal learner’s process (portfolio, personal learning environment, etc.)<br /> Defining the lifecycle of courses and profiles<br />
  23. 23. Widening the reflection<br />What is the right use of OpenSyllabus : a regular interactive syllabus or the central tool to support the learning path ?<br />Is it enough learner centered (knowledge construction and competencies development) ?<br />Should it replace the Home Page tool ?<br />Should it support the instructional design and how ?<br />What kind of views, other than the actual linear view, could users want with OpenSyllabus ?<br />Student could want to see his syllabus organized by date, by content, by competency, by assessment, etc.<br />Datas (like events) could be freely presented in a non linear way ; matrices, clusters, etc.<br />
  24. 24. Widening the reflection<br />With OpenSyllabus the content can be changed anytime, so what about the contract aspect of the syllabus ?<br />How can we enforce the data flow between tools in order to avoid double entries<br />Should OpenSyllabus collect easily datas from Gradebook, Calendar, Samigo, etc. or vice-versa ?<br />How OpenSyllabus could be integrated within Sakai 3 ?<br />Students ask for uniformity while teachers ask for flexibility and customization<br />How do we support program management ?<br />
