EML and Learning Design Colin Tattersall Educational Technology Expertise Centre Open University of the Netherlands Slide 2 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion (I will not be showing pieces of XML) Slide 3 Colin Tattersall British, 11 years in NL; Computer Scientist; Exposure to Computer Based Learning and Intelligent Tutoring Systems in late 80s at CBL Unit, Leeds University; Last few years: product manager at software company producing XML-based authoring/content management systems; Started at OUNL on Nov. 1st 2002 Slide 4 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 5 EML and Learning Design (1) Educational Modelling Language (EML) developed by OUNL in the late nineties made generally available December 2000 brought into the standardisation process, formed the basis for .. IMS Learning Design v1.0 Final Specification Approved February 10 th 2003 Slide 6 EML and Learning Design (2) Some important differences: Slide 7 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 8 My first steps in the e-learning world Downloaded Microsofts LRN 3.0 Toolkit IMS Content Packaging IMS Meta-data Downloaded all example content packages Things were looking good . Slide 9 Slide 10 Slide 11 Slide 12 Slide 13 Slide 14 Things were looking good, but Some engaging content, but each example seemed to be a slight variation of the previous; Learning felt like (only) consuming content Support often looked like page-turning Is this the style of e-learning that the IMS specifications are about? Slide 15 From Learning Objects to Learning Activities What about situations in which learning happens without learning objects? What about when several learners cooperate to solve a problem? Where are the teachers and staff? Learning Design: Modelling the performance of individual and group learning activities designed to attain learning objectives and, in the process, making use of learning objects. Slide 16 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 17 Making IMS-LD learning experiences Learning processes are modelled in the IMS-LD language These models are played in an IMS-LD-aware player; Analogous to marking-up learning materials in HTML and having a browser interpret them Slide 18 IMS-LD concepts People act in different roles working towards certain objectives by performing learning and/or support activities within an environment, consisting of learning objects and services used in the performance of the activities. Analogy with a play . Slide 19 play Act 1Act 2Act 3Act 4Act 5 Role-part 1 Role-part 2 Role-part 4 Role-part 5 Role Activity Environment Learning objects Learning services Activity- Description Slide 20 Who does what, when? Slide 21 But what do students and staff see? The diagram helps to identify roles, activities, acts, etc, easing the creation of an XML-based representation of the learning process; Modelling is one thing, experiencing the learning design is another; Today there is no IMS-LD player, but An impression can be gained through the prototype EML player Warning: you are about to see Dutch content Slide 22 Slide 23 Slide 24 Reflecting on IMS-LD concepts People act in different roles Students and facilitator working towards certain objectives Understanding the role of learning technology standards by performing learning and/or support activities Answering questions, discussing, reading, within an environment, consisting of learning objects and services used in the performance of the activities. Material on standards, discussion forum, Slide 25 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 26 Re-use and IMS-LD Separation of learning objects and services from the educational method used in the unit of learning. Individual learning designs can be applied in different areas PBL in psychology, computer science, sociology, Learning objects can be used in different learning designs A map of North Korea: use in programmed instruction, PBL, Role-playing exercise Slide 27 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 28 Support today IMS-LD approved on Feb. 10 th 2003; Still quite a lot that needs to happen: No IMS-LD player yet (EML players though) No authoring tools yet (some initiatives though) But, staff can already benefit from the philosophy of IMS LD by focusing on learners activities and objectives Slide 29 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion Slide 30 Summary: EML & Learning Design We now have an approved IMS specification in the area of pedagogy; Will help put approaches to learning and teaching on product development agendas; Opportunity to move away from designing for lone-learners reading from screens to focus on the performance of individual and group learning activities designed to attain learning objectives Slide 31 Overview A word or two on who I am Relationship between EML & Learning Design Why I think IMS-LD is important Brief sketch of IMS-LD Re-use in IMS-LD How can staff be supported in using IMS-LD? Summary Discussion
