A Community Information System for Ubiquitous Informal Learning Support

  1. 1. http://Learning‐Layers‐euhttp://Learning‐Layers‐eu Learning Layers Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters A Community Information System for Ubiquitous Informal Learning Support Petru Nicolaescu, Dominik Renzel, István Koren, Ralf Klamma – RWTH Aachen University, Germany Jukka Purma, Merja Bauters - School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Aalto University, Finland 1
  2. 2. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Agenda • Motivation • Background – The Learning Layers EU Project • Web‐based and mobile video annotation for  scaffolding informal learning at workplace • Community success monitoring • Conclusions and future work 2
  3. 3. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Motivation • Why?  – Supporting ubiquituos informal learning by tagging the non‐ obvious in digital video • What? – Near‐real time collaborative multimedia annotation – Multi‐device & multi‐purpose • How? – Cloud‐based Community Information System (CIS) – Seamless user interaction across platforms and devices – Community reflection and analytics using CIS success measures  3
  4. 4. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu EU FP7 Learning Layers Project 4 • How can we scale up video tagging to support  informal learning at the work place? • Objectives – Mobile creation of videos with learning  materials (physical‐digital world) – Tag the non‐obvious for informal  learning in communities (social media  layer) – Scaffold meaningful learning by  exploiting (semantic) tagging information  (social semantic layer) • Two regional clusters – Construction (Germany) – Healthcare (UK)
  5. 5. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Decoupled Multimedia Annotation Information System Architecture 5 • 3‐tier architecture • Cloud‐enabled  solutions • Advantages – Separation of concerns – Scalability – Rapid development &  deployment – Application  customization
  6. 6. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Multimedia Metadata User Interface 6
  7. 7. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Multimedia Metadata User Interface 7
  8. 8. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Multimedia Metadata User Interface 8
  9. 9. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu • Monitoring the use of the Web services in a  Community of Practice • Learn from observing the learners • Improve the quality of  the annotation creation,  management and  exploitation Understanding the Community of Practice 9 MobSOS The Mobile Oracle of Community Success
  10. 10. http://Learning‐Layers‐eu Conclusions & Future Work • Scaling up informal learning – Support communities, clusters and regional networks – Web services for scaling up – Open source development and cloud deployment – (Distributed) Web widgets and mobile interfaces • Web engineering solutions & challenges – Strong and scalable service infrastructure – WebRTC and peer‐2‐peer – OpenID Connect (OIDC) for security and privacy Please ask for details!
