1 SURF X4L Repurposing of Content for Use in VLEs

2 Who are SURF X4L? Staffordshire University, Shrewsbury College of Art & Technology and Stoke College Other Partners are RNCB, WM-RSC, FENC and vendors VLEs include COSE, Learnwise and TekniCAL

3 What is SURF X4L doing? All about finding, reusing and repurposing content in VLEs Looking at tools, pedagogy and methods Looking at standards Staff development and Culture Change

4 What will SURF X4L do? Train staff to find, acquire, reuse & repurpose content to: Put into SURF VLEs Put into repositories for others to reuse & repurpose Produce pedagogic and good practice guides Produce new versions of COSE and other tools

5 SURF Staffordshire University Main technical effort in investigating tools & systems and writing code to enable COSE content to be exported as standalone content. Content produced in COSE can now be saved as specification conformant content packages, needing only a javascript enabled browser for navigation & viewing. Such packages can be viewed in RELOAD, uploaded to the JORUM Intralibrary repository, and, as demonstrated using the ADL Sample RTE, with some modifications, run a SCORM conformant environment. See screenshots below, or ask for a demo to learn more Still much work to do, but the first project phase has been quite encouraging. Priorities now addressing structuring the content for aggregation & disaggregation to aid re-use, investigating changes to COSE architecture to progress with SCORM, more work in exchanging content with the proprietary VLEs (Blackboard, Learnwise and TekniCAL) used by project partners.

9 SURF Shrewsbury College Wide range of learning materials, tools & learning objects made available to staff: NLN Materials FENC Materials JISC Collections RDN Materials

10 SURF Shrewsbury College Produced range of materials for each curriculum area Word documents (converted using authoring tool) PowerPoint Web page creation Hot Potatoes Teknical question designer & authoring tools A range of sample materials for each subject: Introduction Resources Quizzes Summary A learning package created from a series of learning objects or ‘chunks’ of learning

11 SURF Shrewsbury College Use of Teknical authoring tool Standard word document Creation of an interactive learning package

12 SURF Shrewsbury College Uploaded a range of materials onto Shrewsbury College’s VLE Virtual Campus (Teknical) Structure set up for each curriculum area and school Staff beginning to produce more material & use the system Integration of collaborative tools

13 SURF Shrewsbury College NEXT… Continue production of learning materials in various formats Assisting staff to produce materials /objects Further development of metadata and compliancy Transfer of learning packages from one VLE to another

14 SURF Stoke College Standalone Packages –Recombo –LWP –Lectora –LRN3 Toolkit –Canvas –Crocodile Clips Plugins for Applications –PPT/Frontpage LRN Export –Teknical –courseGenie Evaluation of Authoring Packages

15 SURF Stoke College Standalone Packages –Recombo –LWP –Lectora –LRN3 Toolkit –Canvas –Crocodile Clips Plugins for Applications –PPT/Frontpage LRN Export –Teknical –courseGenie Authoring Packages & Delivery Environments VLE –Learnwise –COSE Standalone –LRN3 Toolkit –ADL RTE –Teknical Viewer –Black Arrow

16 SURF Stoke College Methodology Mixed Sample topics –Variety of subject areas/levels –Differing Media/delivery requirements –Wide range of data sources Data Sources Legacy Materials –FENC –In House Authored Free Public Libraries NLN Resources I & II Granada Media Libraries In House created Media –Sound/Video/Flash Subject Areas Food Technology AMSPAR Meetings Skills Web Design Electronics Dyslexia Awareness Brickwork CIMA Accountancy Foundation Degrees (with Staffs Uni)

17 SURF Stoke College Findings so far… Interoperability currently rather poor No one authoring environment or delivery system copes well Some not at all
