1 FP7 - ICT Call 3 1 Challenge 4 4.3 Digital Libraries and Technology enhanced Learning Carlos Oliveira (Deputy Head of Unit) DG INFSO E3 – Cultural Heritage and Technology enhanced Learning

2 FP7 - ICT Call 3 2 Challenge 4: Digital Libraries and Content Harnessing the synergies made possible by linking content, knowledge and learning –Increase the availability of content and its long term accessibility –More effective technologies for the creation, management and reuse of content and knowledge –Scenarios for creative use of content, acquisition and development of knowledge - learning processes Key topics: –Digital Libraries –Technology-enhanced Learning –Intelligent Content and Semantics

3 FP7 - ICT Call 3 3 Objective ICT2007.4.1: Digital Libraries & Technology enhanced Learning The Workprogramme has 2 distinct elements: Digital Libraries Medium term: –a) Large-scale European-wide digital libraries Long term: –b) Radically new approaches to digital preservation Technology-enhanced Learning Medium term –c) Responsive environments for technology- enhanced learning Long term –d) Adaptive and intuitive learning systems

4 FP7 - ICT Call 3 4 Digital libraries: research objectives a) Large-scale European-wide digital libraries of cultural and scientific multi-format and multi-source digital objects (medium term) –robust and scalable environments –cost-effective digitisation –innovative services and creative use –semantic-based search facilities and –digital preservation features assisting communities of practice in the creative use of content in multilingual and multidisciplinary contexts b) Radically new approaches to preservation of digital content (long term) –high volume; dynamic and volatile digital content (notably web) –keep track of evolving meaning and usage context –safeguarding integrity, authenticity and accessibility over time –models enabling automatic and self-organising approaches to preservation

5 FP7 - ICT Call 3 5 Digital libraries: approach and impact Approach : –All funding schemes – but with very different indicative budgets –Includes concept of centres of competence for digitisation and preservation, building upon, pooling and upgrading resources in the Member States –Cross-disciplinary research; empirical evaluation; socio-economic impact Impact : –Unlock organisations' and people's ability to access digital content and to preserve it over time –EU-wide massive digitisation and long term preservation

6 FP7 - ICT Call 3 6 Technology-enhanced Learning: research objectives c) Responsive environments for technology- enhanced learning (Medium term) –accommodate personalisation to respond to specific learning needs and contexts (mass-individualisation) –are capable of transforming learning outcomes into permanent knowledge assets –enhance competence, skills and performance –are pedagogically sound d) Adaptive and intuitive learning systems (Long term) –identify learner's requirements, intelligently monitoring progress, –exploit learning and cognitive abilities letting people learn better, –give purposeful and meaningful advice to both learners and teachers learning on your own or collaboratively

7 FP7 - ICT Call 3 7 Technology-enhanced Learning: approach and impact Approach: Cross-disciplinary (cognitive, organisational, pedagogical, technological aspects) Provide a body of evidence as to which approaches are effective and under which circumstances Impact: –Faster and more effective learning, acquisition of knowledge, competences and skills –Unlocking people’s and organisations’ ability to master knowledge and apply it –Increased knowledge worker productivity, –More efficient organisational learning processes

8 FP7 - ICT Call 3 8 Budget and Funding Schemes -instruments Total budget for the SO: 102 MEUR Call 1: 52 MEUR Call 3: 50 MEUR Funding Schemes: Cooperative Projects (IPs and STREPs) Networks of Excellence Coordination Actions/Support Actions Indicative funding: Cooperative projects M€42.5 minimum of M€20 to IPs; M€10 to STREPs); M€5 for NoEs; M€2.5 for CSAs NO pre-allocation of budget between “digital libraries” and “learning”!

9 FP7 - ICT Call 3 9 FP7-ICT call 1 results 189 Proposals – 12 funded! Digital Libraries and digital preservation 2 IPs, 3 STREPs, 1 CA Large scale digitisation of printed documents (older materials and fonts), digital preservation and added value services based on digital content Learning 2 IPs and 4 STREPs Greater focus on responsive environments and mid- term goals, than on intuitive systems Strong continuity with FP6 research (and projects!) – NoEs have been influential

10 FP7 - ICT Call 3 10 FP7-ICT call 1 new projects Technology-enhanced Learning (1) IP1: Constructivist approach to science learning –Adaptivity, learner as creator, engagement, guidance (by tutors/teachers) –Consortium: universities IP2: Workplace learning –Embedding learning more seamlessly in work processes and KM systems; knowledge maturation –Consortium: universities, industry

11 FP7 - ICT Call 3 11 FP7-ICT call 1 new projects Technology-enhanced Learning (2) STRP 1: Personalisation and adaptivity –developing new tools interfacing with existing infrastructures and LMS STRP 2: Theories, methodologies and technologies for game based learning –Focus on learning science, adaptivity, story telling and engagement STRP 3: Adaptivity and guidance –Using natural language technologies to support learner and teacher STRP 4: Innovation and creativity in product development

12 FP7 - ICT Call 3 12 FP7-ICT call 1 new projects Digital libraries (1) Integrated Project 1: Data Grid, Federated Digital Libraries, Persistent Data Archives and Multivalent Architecture –Test-beds: Documents in Memory Institutions and Governmental Collections, Objects in Industrial Design and Engineering, eScience –Consortium: universities and research org in EU and US, industry and gov. Integrated Project 2: Large scale digitisation of printed older material (scan + OCR) with multilingual support –Centre of competence for digitisation –Consortium: national libraries, ICT (scan + OCR specialists)

13 FP7 - ICT Call 3 13 FP7-ICT call 1 new projects Digital libraries (2) STREP 1: Web archiving : fidelity, coherence and interpretability, transforming pure snapshot into living web archive Consortium: Universities and research, new media archiving STREP 2: Explore software agent technologies to automate preservation processes (self-preserving objects) Consortium: archives and universities, research, ICT STREP 3: Innovative access to digital library content (ability to extend queries in the context of a specific discipline to alien domains) Consortium: film news agencies, universities, research CSA Coordination action on multilingualism in digital libraries

14 FP7 - ICT Call 3 14 Where proposals failed Described solutions without defining either the problem or the research and progress that would be made Objectives more oriented towards providing a solution for a particular set of users (e.g. training for engineers, the virtual museum or digital library with the collections of a specific organisation) than the objectives and impacts specified in the work-programme Failure to justify the choice of the application or test-bed. Our approach is subject neutral – and so it is up to proposers to argue the usefulness of the proposed test-beds (in terms of learning context, potential for replication). Tried to create false links between digital libraries and technology-enhanced learning – thinking that greater coverage of the WP is better than clear relevance to one of the research topics

15 FP7 - ICT Call 3 15 Where proposals failed Over-dimensioned – tried to tackle too much and becoming too diffuse rather than stick to a core problem and focused, measurable objectives In digital libraries: Several proposals having as main objective and outcome to set-up a digital library or repository hosting the collections of an institution, occasionally with some a digitisation component, but a very limited research component Development of solutions for very specific audiences (tracking of stolen works, publishing / simulation of scientific data) without a visible research outcome In learning: Inability to leverage a balance of research in technological and pedagogical (or cognitive science) disciplines – too often there were technologies looking for a home Aim to create LMS or content delivery platforms – not advanced as regards the state of the art, or more oriented towards the objectives of eContentplus
