Cadmos review dimitriadis_20111014

  1. 1. Review  of  CADMOS  tool  by  Yannis  Dimitriadis  I  dedicated  less  than  one  hour,  aiming  to  implement  a  new  design,  based  on  an  existing  design  (http://www.slideshare.net/lprisan/real-­‐individual-­‐design-­‐spanish).  A  university  teacher  within  a  workshop  produced  this  design  and  it  was  based  on  the  pyramid  pattern.  I  could  produce  a  small  part  of  the  design,  through  the  conceptual  map  and  the  activity  flow.  The  design  could  be  saved  and  exported  as  an  IMS-­‐LD  package.  In  general,  I  needed  the  support  of  the  tool  creator  to  advance.  This  means  that  the  tool  requires  a  contextual  help  system  that  may  guide  the  user.    There  are  some  problems  regarding  the  concepts  that  have  been  used.  On  the  one  hand,  some  of  us  (as  experts)  use  terms  in  different  ways,  as  e.g.  resource  that  excludes  the  tools  through  which  produce  artifacts.    The  second  aspect  has  to  do  with  the  semantics  related  to  e.g.  tasks  and  their  typology.  Also,  the  tool  should  present  to  the  user  what  is  the  expected  output,  i.e.  a  visual  representation,  as  well  as  a  IMS-­‐LD  package  that  can  be  re-­‐engineered  with  another  tool  and  vice-­‐versa.  These  are  powerful  characteristics  that  could  be  useful  for  teachers  and  researchers.  The  same  holds  for  the  foreseen  export  to  Moodle.  We  would  need  to  have  a  pool  of  designs  produced  by  teachers  using  the  tool,  as  well  as  designs  produced  by  pen  and  paper  and  implemented  through  the  tool.  The  study  of  such  an  evolution  is  extremely  important!
