                    Subject management – Sakai framework

                                                                                9
             Reusing objects
• The goal of the project is to build a
  repository of reusable learning objects
  within our University based in some of the
  materials produced during the first two years
  for the Sakai sites, and also with the creation
  of new multimedia and interactive contents.




                      10
  Our concept of reusable object
• A digital, self-contained, reusable entity with a
  learning aim that contains the content, the
  metadata and the information which helps its
  identification, storage, and recovery.
• Learning modules can be created combining
  different learning objects within a certain
  context




                       11
                                            15:25



  Types of learning objects

• Depending on their pedagogical content:
  – Conceptual
  – Procedural
  – Attitudinal
• Depending on the format
  – Text
  – Image / sound / video / multimedia
  – Interactive applications



                       12
                                                      15:25



Steps in the creation of a LO

• Determine the objectives: conceptual,
  procedural or attitudinal
• Create the objects
  –   Choose format (text, multimedia, interactive)
  –   Create the introduction of the content
  –   Create the content
  –   Fill up the metadata form
• LO Comittee: Evaluate the quality of the
  learning object

                          13
                                                     15:25



  From LO to Learning Modules
                        • Any object that can be
  Digital object          used, reused or referenced
+ Pedagogical purpose     within a learning process



 Learning object
                        • Introductory guide, practical
+ Coupling objects        activity, evaluation of the
                          module and summary

                                                15:25



        Learning modules

• Learning session created by the
  contextualization of one or several learning
  objects within a didactic environment with the
  addition of coupling objects
• The approximate working time of the student
  in a learning module is one hour, including all
  the activities proposed in the module




                      16
                                                         15:25


Process in creating learning modules

  • Select the competences to develop in the student
  • Select the kind of objects to work in: conceptual,
    procedural or attitudinal
  • Define the structure of the module
  • Search for already created learning objects which
    can fit in our structure
  • Create non-existing learning objects
  • Configure the module: create coupling objects
  • Test the module
  • Evaluate the module

                           17
                                                     15:25



           Quality criteria

• Our goal is to create a high quality learning
  object repository:
   – Training as a requisite
   – Assistance and support to the teacher through all
     the creation process
   – Validation of objects by a LO Committee




                        18
                                                 15:25



   Creation of a repository

• All the objects are stored in a common
  repository, catalogued by the Library and with
  three types of access rights:
  – Any student in the same knowledge area
    (minimum requirement)
  – Any student from the UPV
  – Free access
• The kind of license is not determined by the
  plan. Each teacher can decide which one to
  use
                      19
                                                  15:25



                Dspace

• Dspace has been chosen as the tool to
  create the learning object repository
• It can store, classify, search and distribute all
  kinds of digital contents
• It’s an open source project: www.dspace.org




                       20
                                                                  15:25



       Objectives of the plan

• The main goal of the plan was to start the creation of
  the repository
• The specific actions were:
   –   Extensive training on learning objects theory and practice
   –   Economic incentive to teachers in the creation of the objects
   –   Assistance through the creation process
   –   Creation of the repository
• The types of objects covered by the plan were:
   – Polimedia
   – Virtual labs
   – Any other multimedia or interactive object

                               21
          Learning objects: Polimedia
• Polimedia is a streaming media technology developed by
  the UPV to produce learning multimedia contents, in a
  special way that can combine several technologies
  simultaneously in a web browser
   – Show presentations
   – Use an electronic whiteboard
   – Use computer applications




                               22
    Learning objects: Virtual labs
• Virtual labs is a new set of tools that allow instructors to create
  learning objects for experimentation in an easy and intuitive way
  through the use of scientific software applications such as
  Matlab, Mathematica or LabView.
• These learning objects are generated and accessible via the
  Internet
