1 2004 EDUCAUSE Next Generation Course Management Systems: Beyond Accidental Pedagogy Carmean, Jafari, McGee

2 How we got here  Learner-centered Principles  NLII Research Key Theme  NLII Focus Session  Work Group

3 CMS for Learning: Beyond Accidental Pedagogy  History, Practices, and Uses of Current CMS  Research Implications and Creative Innovations  A Next Generation Learning System

4 History, Practices and Design  From fringe application to enterprise system  From instructor-driven to strategic investment  From out-of-the-box to semesters of experience and intentional use  From IT as provider to IT as academic support Colleen Carmean

5 NG: Assessment No more evasion… Our haste from hence is of so quick condition That it prefers itself and leaves unquestion'd Matters of needful value. Duke Vicentio (Act 1), Measure for Measure Colleen Carmean

6 Assessment: Stakeholders  Instructors  Learners  Support staff  Leadership  Libraries Colleen Carmean

7 NG: Standards & Specifications  Interoperability, reusability, manageability, accessibility  metadata, content, databases & repositories  designs for learning, vocabularies, learner profiles & assessment  expression of competencies  networking protocols Colleen Carmean

8 NG: Tearing down the container  Cross-course resources  Public vs private space  Library access and resources  Discipline-based resources Colleen Carmean

9 Learning, Learning,Learning  Mapping the Learning Space:  gSpace/2619 gSpace/2619 Colleen Carmean

10 Next Generation Learning  Active  Social  Contextual  Encourages Engagement  Requires Ownership Colleen Carmean

11 Learning design  User-centered Access controls  Utilize authentic learning Social Collaborative  Support higher order and deeper thinking Collect Explore Document Scaffold Problem Solve Patricia McGee

12 Learning and teaching  Generative Learning objects  Demonstrative Summative assessment  Support smart pedagogy Distributed and interactive content Learner capacity building “Teach to Learn” Patricia McGee

13 Managing knowledge  Support knowledge organization Cognitive Supports Organizational Tools Connective Functions  Reflective ePortfolios Formative assessment Patricia McGee

14 Designing the Next Generation Teaching & Learning Environment  Major Tasks: 1. Understanding the current systems 2. Understanding the current users’ needs 3. Speculating future users’ needs 4. Proposing new conceptual and technical environments for teaching and learning Ali Jafari

15 A Next Generation Learning Environment: Functional Specifications  Comprehensive tool box  Smart system  Dynamic interface Ali Jafari

16 A Next Generation Learning Environment: Functional Specifications … Comprehensive tool box Beyond “Course” Management Systems … Ali Jafari

17 A Next Generation Learning Environment: Functional Specifications … Smart system Ability to think, reason, and react … Ali Jafari

18 A Next Generation Learning Environment: Functional Specifications … Dynamic interface Personalized navigation scheme based on a user’s preferences … Ali Jafari

24 Research Methodology  Multiple case study through which a cross-case analysis process will be used to investigate a series of questions as they relate to design, use, and support of CMS in academia.  Sponsored by select CMS vendors, developers, and HE institutions. Ali Jafari

25 Tentative Research Questions  Research questions  What are the limitations of current learning systems and software solutions from the perspective of end users?  What are the technological support issues of learning systems from the perspectives of IT administration and support personnel?  What is the vision of the software developer for creation of the next generation of teaching and learning environment?  What are the needs and/or expectations of the end users, IT administration, and software developers for the next generation of the teaching and learning environment?  To what extent do the current standards and interoperability activities support future needs?  What technical and conceptual issues are causing current campus portals projects to fail?  How should ePortfolio services be integrated with current and future learning environments?  What are the functional requirements of an “intelligent” learning environment from the perspective of end users?  What are the technical requirements for an intelligent learning environment from the perspective of developers?  How can the current navigational scheme and user interface design of current course management systems be improved?  What are the potential viable system design options for the next generation of the teaching and learning environment?  What is the extent to which commonly-used productivity software tools (i.e., Microsoft Office Suite) should be integrated into the next generation of the teaching and learning environment?  What communication channels (i.e., hand-held devices, cell phone, the like) other than a computer screen could be useful in the next generation of the teaching and learning environment?  What are the human-factor issues within the current system which must be addressed in the next generation of the teaching and learning environment?
