2 2 AGENDA © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC) Support for the Evolving Learning Enterprise Overview of Digital Learning Services Mashing-up Learning Application & Platform Functions with LTI Content Mash-ups Enabled through Common Cartridge IMS Campus Program – Guidance, Collaboration and Commitment Question & Answer Session/Group Discussion

3 3 ABOUT IMS GLC © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. IMS GLC develops the technical standards and adoption practices for learning technology so that learning experiences are more accessible, delivered more efficiently, and are of higher quality.

6 6 Digital Learning Services Free the content IMS Common Cartridge Seamlessly connect to learning IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) The information architecture for learning IMS Learning Information Services (LIS) © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. An interoperability specification for developing, packaging and distributing digital learning content in a single format – REDUCING (RE)DEVELOPMENT COST AND CONTENT CONVERSION RISK Distills the latest and best community practices for mashing digital content for delivery in learning platforms.

7 7 Digital Learning Services Seamlessly connect to learning Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. Enables functional mash-ups among rich learning applications and learning platforms, creating seamless online learning environments Reduces development costs for learning application providers (vendor, institution) by reducing need for custom integrations - clearly defined interface among the LMS and learning application

14 14 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. What is Common Cartridge Based on 10 years experience and the most widely used interoperability standards for learning content and assessment: Metadata ISO 15836:2003: Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (mapped to the corresponding elements in LOM) IEEE : Learning Object Metadata IEEE : LOM Schema binding (loose binding) Content IMS Content Packaging v1.2 IMS Question & Test Interoperability (QTI) v1.2.1

15 15 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. What is Common Cartridge (contd) Supports the predominant educational and training paradigm: self-directed but guided learning with an instructor in the loop, coordinated with assessment and online communal learning (discussions). Enables mapping to things we use and understand: textbooks, lesson plans, courses, quizzes, discussion topics. Supported by the leading educational publishers, assessment organizations, and learning platform providers and leading open source/open content initiatives. Easy to implement and flexible. Content dynamic in structure and delivery.

17 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. 17 Engaging open source, creating standards, engaging proprietary vendors, evangelizing ideas, doing demos, all are important activities... But if we want to have have real impact, the long-term goal must be to empower teachers and learners as to how they select, use and expand technology to help themselves teach and learn...

26 26 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. Compliance Program Membership in the Common Cartridge Alliance is the only way to achieve official conformance to the CC. Digital content or learning platforms must exhibit the marks shown here, signifying achievement of the official conformance process, to be compliant to IMS CC. Products without this mark are not considered to be compliant by IMS GLC.

27 27 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. Measuring Compliance Self-test, not 3 rd party certification Test method: Cartridges – automated test tool Platforms – test data sets of valid/known error cartridges Conformance levels for platforms CC compliant – supports all CC features

28 28 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved. Learning & Educational Technology Product Directory Comprehensive directory of content, platforms, tools and services for learning 824 products listed Covers wide range of products (not just CC) Indicates compliance achieved Links to supplier web pages

31 31 Web Content Resources Any kind of file Dont require processing on import, unlike, say, discussion topic XML files. Two scopes: cartridge (shared) and learning application object (associated with one and only one) Cartridge path structure should be preserved so relative references continue to work. Optional intended use of Lesson Plan or Syllabus. © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.

32 32 Web Links Link information is stored in an XML file that must be processed by the learning platform. Links can have some parameters related to desired behavior. © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.

33 33 Discussion Topics Discussion topic text is stored in an XML file that must be processed by the learning platform. Discussions can have attachments. © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.

34 34 © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.

35 35 Assessment Link information is stored in an XML file that must be processed by the learning platform. Assessment: an ordered set of questions with attributes that can be associated with all of them (type, feedback / hints / solutions permitted, time limit, late submissions allowed, maximum # of attempts) Question Bank: an unordered set of questions. Note, only one question bank per cartridge. © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.

36 36 Assessment (continued) Item (question) can have metadata Type: true/false, multiple choice (single response), multiple choice (multiple response), fill in the blank, essay, pattern match (optional) Category / Keyword Weighting Presentation Item response processing Item feedback (General, Based on individual responses, Hints, Essay sample solutions) © Copyright 2011 IMS Global Learning Consortium All Rights Reserved.
