2 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan Problem What motivates faculty to embrace instructional technology? If it’s not broke… Wave of the future… Entrepreneurial Faculty Second-Wave Faculty Source: Hagner (2000)

3 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan Hypothesis 1.“Second-wave adopters” will more likely adopt techniques and tools based on successful peer implementations than institutional implementations. 2.The fastest route to second wave adoption may be to stimulate the entrepreneurial faculty.

4 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan What I Wanted 1.To create computer-based homework tools.

5 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan What I Wanted 1.To create computer-based homework tools. 2.To be able to have these activities gather information from my own server.

9 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan What I Wanted 1.To create computer-based homework tools. 2.To be able to have these activities gather information from my own server. 3.Have student results be input into the university’s course management system.

10 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan Open(?)-Source Open Source ≠ Open Authoring “ Jetspeed is an Open Source implementation of an Enterprise Information Portal, using Java and XML. The data presented via Jetspeed is independent of content type. This means that content from for example XML,RSS or SMTP can be integrated with Jetspeed! The actual presentation of the data is handled via ates (sic?) XSL and delivered to the user for example via the combination of Java Server Pages (JSPs) and HTML. Jetspeed provides support for templating and content publication frameworks such as Cocoon, WebMacro and Velocity. Note that outside of regular browser Jetspeed also supports WAP devices. Jetspeed helps you build portal applications quickly! ”

11 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan CHEF The CompreHensive collaborativE Framework (CHEF) initiative has as its goal, the development of a flexible environment for supporting distance learning and collaborative work, and doing research on distance learning and collaborative work.

12 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan The Problem Some, including “entrepreneur” faculty find university course management systems inaccessible.

13 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan The Solution (it isn’t pretty) 1.Identify what you want. 2.Find a someone in the system who uses verbs. 3.Find resources to keep his/her interest.

27 ©2004 P. Samson - University of Michigan Summary 1.Middleware has been produced that interfaces Macromedia Flash ® (and Director, HTML, and others) with the CHEF system. 2.Ultimately this will evolve into a “component” that any faculty (READ: their students) can use to build learning objects. 3.The hope is this will open doors for other faculty to author their ideas.
