Abstract [en]

This conceptual paper describes challenges in the field of Interactive Media and Learning (IML), striving towards a research and teaching field for mobile learning. The theoretical background is provided and arguments are listed, specifically what challenges researchers, practitioners (e.g., teachers, employers, employees) and designers face today on the way to mobile learning. This will be done from an educational perspective, in particular from Educational Technology from a Scandinavian community. The leading issue is how to educate the Homo Interneticus? Is learning supported by mobile devices one option? Is there a need to rethink the learning spaces of today? The paper provides answers by illustrating challenges in research and teaching with regard to mobile learning.

Abstract [en]

The CEN Workshop Learning Technologies (WS/LT) kicked off this project on “Interoperability of registries” in January 2010. The Project Team for Interoperability of Registries was appointed in April 2010 and started to work in May 2010. Work in progress was presented at several CEN WS/LT plenary meetings in 2010 and 2011. The draft CWA includes comments received during meetings.

Contributions from the following partners are acknowledged: CEN WS/LT, ARIADNE, European Schoolnet, ASPECT, ICOPER, IMS, GLOBE, Learning Registry, Share.tec, Organice Edunet, Natural Europe, etc.

The public comment period for this CWA run from 10 August 2011 until 10 October 2011. Comments were integrated in this final document.

Abstract [en]

The rapid growth of digital learning resources has brought forward a number of issues concerning availability, distribution and use. Altogether, the issues are a mix of interplaited technological and pedagogical considerations. Some of those issues, mainly related to repositories and the distribution of digital learning resources, are examined and described in this article. A particular focus is put on how resources can be described and indexed using metadata, and on how access to digital learning resources can be improved and facilitated through federation and/or harvesting of metadata in order to tie several repositories together to provide a service that offers one single access point. The study also examined how this single point of access can be moved closer to the user (i.e. to the environment where digital learning resources are used) through simple federation of the service, enabling access to the network of repositories from any virtual learning environment. The study was carried out by experiments connected to a real-life case. The study concludes in several suggestions for how access to digital learning resources can be enhanced, as well as in the identifications of a couple of new issues that need to be addressed by future research.

Abstract [en]

A general SOA framework for Virtual Learning Environments, based on the VWE Learning Object Taxonomy, is suggested in this chapter. Five basic and general services are suggested for implementation of modular Virtual Learning Environments. The design of the service framework was tested by implementation in two prototypes, using two different approaches where a Java-RMI based implementation was compared to a Web Service (SOAP) based implementation. By implementing the VWE Learning Object Taxonomy and the VWE SOA framework, the prototypes showed that a level of modularity, similar to the level of modularity of Learning Objects, could be achieved for the Virtual Learning Environment as well. Using the VWE Learning Object Taxonomy, this was accomplished by including the learning content and the Virtual Learning Environment into the same conceptual space. The comparison of the prototypes showed that the Web Service approach was preferred in favor of the Java-RMI approach. This was mainly due to platform neutrality and the use of the http-protocol. The study was supplemented by an analysis of the two approaches in relation to a third, REST-based approach.

Abstract [sv]

Öppenhet och flexibilitet två viktiga komponenter för att uppnå mesta möjliga pedagogiska nytta av att använda IT. Pedagogiska krav och förväntningar måste återspeglas och stödjas av tekniken, men tyvärr tvingar tekniken istället alltför ofta till anpassning av desamma. Ser man tillbaka på utvecklingen teknikförstärkt lärande så är det tydligt att det finns en röd tråd som sträcker sig från 40-50-talens utveckling som framförallt byggde på behavioristiska teorier om lärande (som t.ex. the Teaching Machine av Skinner [1]) och utvecklades för militära behov, via koncept som Computer Assisted Instruction, fortfarande med starka drivkrafter från amerikanska militära intressen [2], fram till dagens webbaserade IT-stöd1. Det är egentligen först nu som tekniken börjar vara mogen för att kunna erbjuda ett riktigt bra IT-stöd som kan matcha moderna teorier om lärande. De senaste årens tekniska utveckling har skapat nya intressanta förutsättningar för att arbeta med de problem som fortfarande förknippas med IT-miljöer för lärande. För att lyckas med detta krävs dock en målmedveten strategi och samordning av centrala komponenter i skolans infrastruktur. Nedan beskrivs lite av den situation som präglar dagens IT-miljöer för lärande, med ett särskilt fokus på s.k. lärplattformar och digitala lärresurser. Därefter görs en analys av den pågående teknikutvecklingen i allmänhet och för lärande i synnerhet med några avslutande resonemang om strategiska vägval och förutsättningar.
