COVARM – Course Validation Reference Model by sdfwerte


									COVARM – Course Validation
    Reference Model

            Balbir Barn
The Problem

    Course validation is a core business process –
     equivalent to new product development in
    The process is time consuming and expensive
     on resources
    Strong focus on governance and external
     quality auditing
    Additional challenges: E-Learning and
     Foundation degrees which require inter-
     institution collaboration
Project Aims and Objectives

   to define a candidate reference model utilizing a
    framework of services to support a canonical business
    process to support course validation.
    Evaluate course validation processes of several
     institutions to define a canonical business process and
     a set of use cases defining the requirements of the
     business process.
    Develop a candidate information model representing
     the concepts and data required to support course
    Specify and develop a set of candidate web services to
     support the canonical business process using any
     existing ones from the ELF as appropriate;
    Implement a proof of concept prototype utilizing the
     services defined for the “Course Validation” area;
    Promote and disseminate.

    Fundamentals
     –   Model based approach using UML (1.5 and 2.0)
     –   Application and adaptation of software engineering
         methods – component based development and
         Rational Unified Process
     –   Iterative
    Stages
Stages in the process
Initial results

    Interviews have been conducted at partner institutions
    Draft Models of our understanding of institutional
     business processes have been constructed
    Modelling has raised some of the following issues.
     –   Tool support for UML 2.0 is not ready
     –   (Rational Software Architect used and then tabled after several
     –   XDE provides a more stable environment for business
     –   Modelling of business rules as constraints is burdensome and
         lacks modelling rigour with XDE
Initial results cont’d
    Positive response from institutions whose enterprises have been
     –   Staffs have indicated that this activity has raised some questions on
         their processes
     –   Manchester want posters of the process!
     –   TVU have expressed interest in the additional reporting that will be
         possible via tools hosted on the reference model

    Process Patterns emerging from the models
     –   Consultation with expert;
     –   Assessment and Approval;
     –   Convene Panel;
     –   Meet Conditions;
     –   Refinement Pattern
     –   Sign-off Pattern;
     –   Collaboration Pattern;
 Not all are implementable….

                Process    characteristics used to
                           develop the canonical process
Characteristics modelled
   Stages
   Roles
   Objects and their flow – instances of docs produced
   Events – something that triggers a set of activities
   Collaborations – activities executed by two or more
   Activities
   Constraints
   Specific activities to support eLearning
   Life-cycle / states of objects – Programme
   Interfaces with other enterprise information systems
   Reference Docs – e.g. strategy docs
Proposed Approach

    Aggregation of concepts
    Variants are handled by defining extension
     points in the canonical process
    Extension points will be modelled by
     constraints in the transformation relationships
    Synthesis will propose candidate terms and will
     be mapped to specific institutions by using
     synonym tables.
