Our Microcontent Approach: Learning Content Encompassing Learning Platform

  1. 1. Our Microcontent Approach: Learning Content Encompassing Learning PlatformMasumi Hori, Seishi Ono and Shinzo Kobayashi, Research institute of CCC-TIES, Tsuneo Yamada, Open University of Japan A nifty gadget for Open Content The Goal Effective use of the various internet resource • Takes advantage of internet services such as YouTube, Google-class, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and others. • Utilizes convenient open content such as OCW, Khan Academy, MOOCs, and others. Challenges of traditional LMS • Learning progress is highly dependent on course structure. • Learning activities are restricted by the Learning Management System’s (LMS) functionality. • Time and money needed to use LMS. Background Method A mash-up of the internet resources without LMS Comparing EDUPUB with CHiLO A nifty gadget - Creative Higher Education with Learning Objects (CHiLO) - Structures of CHiLO Various distribution channelsReusing open resources There are many open resources on the web and you have original contents. Encapsulation CHiLOProducer Storage CHiLO Library Display CHiLOReader Learning goal Metadata LMS SNS Blog etc. SCORM MANIFEST Metadata Organizations Resources Resources Child Manifest  For learning content  Hierarchical structure  Defined complex conditions EPUB content.opf Metadata Manifest Spine Resources  For e-books  Flat structure  Defined only forthe display order CHiLO collects those contents on the web and creates CHiLO Book based on any teaching method. CHiLO allows for content to be offered on a range of distribution channels such as SNS, blog and virtual stores. CHiLO has one object and three functions. 1. CHiLO Book is an EPUB3 format object which is a container package for learning resources. 2. CHiLO Producer has a function to convert Metadata of learning resources; such as title, location, description, and license, to a CHiLO Book. 3. CHiLO Library is a repository for the CHiLO Book’s metadata and for the CHiLO Book. 4. CHiLO Reader is a modified ePub reader Readium.js, an open source software. It enables CHiLO Book to be displayed on web browsers.

CHiLO Draft 8 / 6th June, 2014 EPUB3/LTI/QTI/Caliper Best Practices CS IMS Global 24 · Student Information System (SIS) – the institutions system that stores all of the reference information about the learner. Figure 2.7 – Overarching EDUPUB Architectural Model 2.6.1 The Core EDUPUB Use-cases The core usage scenarios for this architecture are: · Standalone Consumer Access – in this scenario the eBook Reader is used without any of the use of institutional or other third party services. This is the typical usage for a consumer; · Institutional-oriented Access – in this scenario the eBook is part of a larger educational and/or training environment. A number of institutional services such as the LMS, SIS, assessment and analytics systems are used; · LTI-Mediated Remote Content Access & Reporting – a software-based eReader may be launched via LTI using a pre-configured consumer key and shared secret (see Section 3). A specific eBook may be opened automatically by passing its name in a custom LTI launch parameter. LTI-mediated content can be used in both standalone and institutional-oriented access. 2.6.2 Supporting Learning Analytics Support for learning analytics requires various systems and the content itself to have the ability to report the appropriate data to the analytics server/repository. This gives rise to the use of the IMS Sensor API as shown in Figure 2.8. IDPF, 2014.
