“We are not alone!” – Truly exchanging Learning Objects between Moodle and other LMS

Published on

Have you ever asked the following question:

« How could I connect my Moodle platform with another LMS? »

During my talk, I will present a solution, conceived of at the University of Geneva, to connect the Moodle platform with other LMS (e.g., Chamilo, OLAT) and with a Swiss national learning repository, known as SwitchCollection.
These connections allows teachers to share their resources (documents, ppt presentation) and activities (wiki, glossary, quiz, etc.) with other teachers working in various teaching environments. Sharing such learning resources is reminiscent of the Open Educational Resources (OER), whereupon depending on the license agreement teachers can modify the content and reuse it in their courses.

Technically, our solution is based on two main elements:

* A repository using Fedora Commons (FedoraLOR.unige.ch) to collect and render sharable and harvestable the various resources and activities.
* Import/export LMS modules for converting resources and activities into a standard format (IMS CP and IMS QTI) and storing them in the repository.

A live demo will illustrate the whole concept. We will conclude by sharing with the audience some thoughts about what we think could be potential barriers behind OER (copyright issues, philosophy of sharing, etc.) and propose ways to handle such difficulties.

“We are not alone!” – Truly exchanging Learning Objects between Moodle and other LMS

  1. 1. “We are not alone!” – Truly exchangingLearning Objects between Moodle and other LMS Patrick Roth and Laurent Opprecht April 20, 2011
  2. 2. Objectives• Current situation – 2 LMS (Dokeos and Moodle) + multimedia server – LO exchange impossible between LMS – No connection with Swiss national repository “SWITCHcollection”• Our goal – Make the LO exchange possible between LMS – Develop a connection with SWITCHcollection
  3. 3. Initial Goal UniGE LO Learning Object Moodle Dokeos • Resources: pdf, ppt, mp3, etc. • Activities: tests, forums, wiki, etc. LO LO LO LO UniZH OLAT Switch LO LOSWITCHcollection

  5. 5. Solutions• Add a repository FedoraLOR.unige.ch – Product selected: Fedora • Store digital objects: content and/or metadata • Easy communication with SWITCHcollection• Develop import/export LO modules
