Bid submitted to link with OpenDocument.net. Demonstration at the Open Market today Slide35:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths TENCompetence and Reload TENCompetence needs easier IMS LD authoring Two approaches Artificial intelligence: mapping any high level representation using a standard workflow representation to be mapped to IMS LD. Creation of specific graphical interfaces. Slide36:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Slide37:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths It is hard to agree on component chunks Depends on learners’ objectives, teacher preference, pedagogy, institutional context, We need a range of options, so it is planned to develop palette of components generated automatically from partially completed UoLs Slide38:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Tencompetence and LD runtime Coppercore: runtime integration with SCORM currently underway Development of spec to connect communication and collaboration services to LD runtime engines TENCompetence provides an environment for planning and carrying out Life Long Learning UoLs play in the TENCompetence client, but also represent and reproduce sequences of activities defined by the user in the client. Slide39:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Current prospects for IMS LD (from UK perspective) IMS LD is well known, but not well understood. Needs more outreach work Not universally accepted as the solution to the challenges in IT support for pedagogic activities At the same time it has not been rejected. Some would say it is a well intentioned skepticism. Development work is continuing, but the momentum is not as strong as we would like. Slide40:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths What are people’s concerns about IMS LD? It is seen as too complex to work with. This is (at least in part) a question of tooling. Many teachers have control over their pedagogy, which constitutes their professional independence. They may mistrust the intrusion of any computer system into this domain. Only convincing and useful applications will overcome this Slide41:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Farmer andamp; Tilton, June 2006, IMandamp;M Technical Briefs Part of OSS Watch work funded by JISC. Slide42:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Three big challenges for IMS LD: 1. Disaggregation of VLEs Stitching together services like mail, chat, blog, wiki etc is no longer hard, so VLEs are tending to be disaggregated But IMS LD assumes VLEs, with cohorts, design time and runtime distinction… Its role and use in a system which is built around the learner rather than the institution is an open question (PLE, TENCompetence) Slide43:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Three big challenges for IMS LD: 2. Technological change We tend to hear 'We don’t need interoperability specs any more, we have Del.ico.us and Flickr…' a) Zip files are anomalous in a Web 2.0 world. There are solutions, but there is an overhead. b) XML based interoperability between large VLEs is starting to look like yesterday’s solution (whether this is right or wrong) Slide44:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Three big challenges for IMS LD: 3. Institutional change Education, especially higher education, is a moving target: expansion, new institutional structures and policies, Communities of Practice and Corporate Universities. All these meet in Life Long Learning How can IMS LD meet the needs of this new environment? What additional specs and apps? TENCompetence is focused on LLL, and will provide initial answers Slide45:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Good news, bad news… IMS LD has clear role in delivering interoperable flexible large scale distance education on VLEs Providers still need to be convinced by applications and courses, but the logic of the solution is clear However, there are many fewer VLEs than we might have expected, and so less need to interoperate… But as well as interoperability, IMS LD is attractive as a modelling environment, and as a means of scheduling learning activities Slide46:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths Web 2.0 andamp; PLE perspective: IMS LD is good at… Coordinating learning flows and (potentially) link with enterprise systems. But this might be a service with no integrated course delivery Modelling pedagogic activities But is the institutional baggage too much to carry? We need to provide some smart applications, and/or profiles to show that this can work Slide47:  IMS-LD, progress and prospects 8th Nov 06, IMS LD Summit Heerlen, Dai Griffiths TENCompetence Open Workshop GMEX conference centre, Manchester Thursday 11th - Friday 12th January There is a call still open leading to publication in IJLT. Deadline 17th November (talk to me) Come and discuss these issues! www.tencompetence.org
