Learning beyond The Apprentice July 18th, 2011 at 08:07 OK, so I probably wasn’t the only learning technologist shouting at the TV during ‘ The Apprentice ‘ last night when Jim detailed his plans for revolutionizing employability of schoolkids through elearning. Something like that can give edtech a bad name. When it’s badly implemented and fails, it’s the technology gets the blame, as is ever the case with computer systems. © 2007-2011 Hugh MacLeod’s gapingvoid http://gapingvoid.com/

For some time now my colleagues in the Warwick E-learning Advisor Team have been arguing that we should create some kind of 'templating' system within the web publishing component of our V[R]LE (Sitebuilder). Chris Coe has a great name for it: Elaborate (quick, file for a trademark). The idea is that we could create templates based on generic and discipline specific learning designs. A template would embody the structure, functionality, and flow of the learning design in a set of pages and interactions.
Q: Can you tell me the history behind the PCET electronic portfolio? “I attended a staff development session that introduced Campus Pack (one of yours!). We were looking at how the administration team might be able to use the system to share course documentation with external staff, mentors, course representatives etc. and I had a ‘light bulb’ moment – realising that this system (Campus Pack) could be used for the trainees’ portfolios. This led to a complete redesign of the two modules, and moving the initial audit from the first module (PTTLs) and integrating it into their professional practice modules. Q: What did you envisage?
This infoKit was first published in 2004 and is currently being updated. Back in 2004 when we wrote this infoKit, we defined a VLE as – ‘A Virtual Learning Environment is a collection of integrated tools enabling the management of online learning, providing a delivery mechanism, student tracking, assessment and access to resources’. These integrated tools may be one product (eg BlackBoard, Moodle) or an integrated set of individual, perhaps open-source, tools. This definition still holds true with most education providers using a ‘product’ for example Blackboard or Moodle with Web2.0 tools being used to supplement the functionality offered by these systems, but these are often not truly integrated. Although written a few years ago, most of the advice and guidance remains sound. Of course the screenshots are out of date!
VLEs have a huge range of functionality, a lot of criticism often laid against the VLE is that some users are not aware of those functions. There is often too much information about the VLE for new users who may not understand many of the concepts or have the skills to fully utilise the functionality of the VLE. Stage One Upload to the VLE the course resources, handouts, assignments, scheme of work and links.
