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