Towards outcome based learning: an engineering education case
2011 (English)In: 2011 IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference (EDUCON): Learning Environments and Ecosystems in Engineering Education, 2011, 1039-1048 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Following the European initiatives like European Qualification Framework (EQF), Europass  and European Learner Mobility , the aim of this paper is to introduce specifications, services and applications that enable the management and use of learning outcome information. We present pilot implementation and validation of the adoption of standards and specifications related to outcome based learning. Prototypes are developed as widgets and modules of Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Moodle, to produce and import data about intended learning outcomes of learning opportunities and achieved learning outcomes of learners. We demonstrate an outcome based Engineering Education use case.
