Efita 2013 - FSKN: Towards an open & scalable learning infrastructure

  1. 1. EFITA Conference Sustainable Agriculture through ICT Innovation 23-27/06/2013 Turin, Italy
  2. 2. Towards an Open and Scalable Learning Infrastructure for Food Safety Capacity Building Christine Geith, PhD and Karen Vignare, PhD (Michigan State University, USA) Charalampos Thanopoulos, PhD and Nikos Manouselis, PhD (Agro-Know Technologies, Greece)
  3. 3. FSKN Model
  4. 4. • Plenty of institutions and projects that offer access to good educational resources related to food safety and food standards − training opportunities − open educational resources − targeted/needed skills & competences − certificated courses Findability and discoverability of open educational resources
  5. 5. Findability and discoverability of open educational resources
  6. 6. Findability and discoverability of open educational resources
  7. 7. Findability and discoverability of open educational resources
  8. 8. Findability and discoverability of open educational resources
  9. 9. Evolving the concept inaccessible Educational Content Unknown to the potential target groups Lack of clear policies No guidelines for openly share learning opportunities & content Absent of thematic networks for specific agricultural topics Learning portals with agricultural educational content Data infrastructure (..collect & provide rich content..) Technology components Metadata aggregation
  10. 10. v Global food safety capacity building Strengthen the food industry extend its technology backbone Access to free Safety Knowledge Re-use existing OER on food safety topics
  11. 11. Open and scalable learning infrastructure for food safety c
  12. 12. • main front-end to present project and allow users to find information in the aggregated sources − various modalities (visual, device, thematic, geographical, industry, …) for search & discovery of courses and OER − multilingual interfaces and metadata facilitated by automatic translation engines Food Safety Learning Portal
  13. 13. • search/discovery interfaces and mechanisms that can be embedded in other web sites and portals (widget-like or search pages in sites) • mobile apps for various operational systems (iOS, Android, Windows 8) • back-end engine to allow straightforward generation of adaptable versions of both (thematic, industry, geographical, linguistic, …) Food Safety Learning Widgets/Apps
  14. 14. • back end technology infrastructure − ingest, harvest, aggregate course and OER metadata from existing or new (e.g. legacy) learning platforms and OER collections − tools to allow course and OER providers to align/map their metadata & classifications to the network’s reference ones Educational Offerings Aggregator
  15. 15. • representation of network’s curriculum in interoperable format (using learning outcomes, competences) − tools to allow other course providers to register and express/map their curricula to the network’s curriculum − tools to facilitate the generation of multilingual versions of the curricula descriptions − generation of transformable curricula representations to allow users to browse using preferred curriculum format Curriculum Registry & Alignment
  16. 16. Food Safety Learning Infrastructure - Usage Scenarios
  17. 17. • regional meat producer in Paraguay – e.g. exploring how their company can start selling packaged cooked ham to an international food distribution company • product of high quality one, made from pure pork ham – assume that they would like to find out more about the food safety standards of cooked ham Frigorífico Concepcion
  18. 18. Step 1: Search at Codex Alimentarius web page powered “Cooked ham standard” c
  19. 19. Step 2: Search at the FSKN web page powered “Food labeling” c
  20. 20. Step 2: Search at the FSKN web page powered “Online course for HACCP” c
  21. 21. • digital sources and collections material to be used (and potentially re-used) in several contexts − even different than originally expected/thought of • open and scalable learning infrastructure for food safety resources (course, standards, ..) • The next stage will be fully integrating the demonstrators within the new FSKN site and then − evolve the back end into a full scale federation of food safety resources. Conclusions & Future work
