Virtual Workspace Environment (VWE): A Taxonomy and Service Oriented Architecture Framework for Modularized Virtual Learning Environments - Applying the Learning Object Concept to the VLE
2006 (English)In: International Journal on E-Learning, ISSN 1537-2456, Vol. 5, no 1, 45-57 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Based on existing Learning Object taxonomies, this article suggests an alternative Learning Object taxonomy, combined with a general Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework, aiming to transfer the modularized concept of Learning Objects to modularized Virtual Learning Environments. The taxonomy and SOA-framework exposes a need for a clearer definition of the aggregation and granularity of Learning Objects together with a clearer separation of data, presentation and application logics. The Virtual Workspace Environment (VWE) demonstrator shows that there is a necessity to unite fundamentals from computer science and pedagogical theories to achieve this.
