GTI has participated in the European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning 2014


Davinia Hernández-Leo, coordinator of the Learning Technologies research line within the GTI, attended the 9th European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning, Graz, Austria this week. She has participated in the workshop Can MOOCs save Europe’s unemployed youth?, in which she was in charge together with Carlos Delgado Kloos, of a talk devoted to “responding” to the papers presented along the workshop. She also chaired a scientific session on MOOCs and related topics and presented a Demo of the Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE):

Abstract: This paper presents the Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE). ILDE is being developed in the METIS project, which aims at promoting the adoption of learning design by providing integrated support to teachers throughout the whole design and implementation process (or lifecycle). ILDE integrates existing free- and open-source tools that include: co-design support for teacher communities; learning design editors following different authoring and pedagogical approaches; interface for deployment of designs on mainstream Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs). The integration is designed so that teachers experience a continuous flow while completing the tasks involved in the learning design lifecycle, even when the tasks are supported by different tools. ILDE uses the LdShake platform to provide social networking features and to manage the integrated access to designs and tooling including conceptualization tools (OULDI templates), editors (WebCollage, OpenGLM), and deployment into VLEs (e.g., Moodle) via GLUE!-PS.
