  3. 3. Illinois Shared Learning Environment (ISLE) Illinois Shared Learning Environment (ISLE) is an online platform that will empower educators, workforce partners, and learners with integrated data and tools to personalize learning and drive success for pre-K through career. The current phase is focusing on tools for K-12 schools, Illinois Pathways STEM Learning Exchanges, and career development with the Illinois Student Assistance Commission and Illinois workNet®. The ISLE Open Educational Resources (OER) is one of the ISLE tools. ​​Mission Statement ISLE drives academic achievement and career success for all lifelong learners in Illinois by enabling personalized learning through open and accessible technologies.​ 3

  6. 6. Enabling Open Access and Integration For ISLE to meet it’s goals, we need to ensure open access and a model for integration:Key Attributes of ISLE Enablers Access to resources and tools for anyone! Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI)/ Schema.org Learning Registry (LR) Achievement Standards Network (ASN) Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) Creative Commons (CC) APIs* LRMI Data models LR Metadata schemas and frameworks ASN LR LRMI (Schema.org) Common vocabulary CEDS Licenses for appropriate use of resources CC 6 Using a common schema for the payload means that the API doesn’t have to handle describing or marking up the data it’s sending, it just has to send it—the receiving system will already know how to interpret it.
  7. 7. Enabling Open Access to and Integration of Resources Learning resource metadata adopted by Schema.org. Cloud datastore, specification for replication nodes, and paradata schema. Metadata framework and services for learning standards and rubrics. Attribution licenses to protect open access to resources. Common vocabulary. 7
  8. 8. Together, LR and LRMI enable ISLE OER, and other applications: •  The LR takes the burden of maintaining its datastore and specification off of the developer, allowing organizations such as ours to focus time and money on the end product. •  The LR provides a national/global metadata repository to enable an applications marketplace. •  LRMI standardizes metadata making it easier to index and integrate education resources. More Reasons Why LR and LRMI are Important 8
  9. 9. Metadata Impacts on ISLE OER •  Index – Essential for users to find resources. •  Filter – Options to narrow search results. •  Tag – Describe resources for educational purposes. •  Provide API – Integrate with other applications. Datastore & Paradata Impacts on ISLE OER •  Consume and Produce Resources - Shared infrastructure for trusted partners (via metadata) •  Usage Information – Share information about resources collectively (via paradata) 9
  10. 10. ISLE OER Produces and Consumes Metadata and Paradata from Learning Registry L R 10
  11. 11. Enabling ISLE OER and Challenges •  ISLE OER consists of code, datastores, and an index developed and maintained by the OER team for searching. The ISLE OER code and datastores determine: •  Resources we deem as acceptable from the LR •  Augment or remove metadata from and to LR •  What resources we can share openly back to LR There are challenges with using LR and LRMI: •  Getting a broad enough base of participants (i.e. producers) with LR who provide open learning resource metadata as LRMI •  Receiving metadata with a useful vocabulary and tagged appropriately •  Aligning learning resources to learning standards and competencies 11
  12. 12. API and Widgets Using LRMI and Learning Registry, ensures consistent metadata and paradata across applications. ISLE is requiring applications to integrate and use the OER API (based on LRMI) for •  Learning Maps •  Assessment Authoring Other examples of ISLE OER integration include: •  Direct access via the ISLE Dashboard for K-12 teachers •  Widgets available for embedding on any website Other Websites 12
