E-Learning Software - Easygenerator. OpenGLM - Open Graphical Learning Modeler — Informatik 5 (Information Systems) Open Graphical Learning Modeller (OpenGLM) is an open-source learning design authoring tool which supports IMS Learning Design (LD) at levels A and B. OpenGLM is a learning design authoring toolkit that supports the authoring of IMS Learning Design (LD) compliant units of learning. IMS LD is a complex specification that allows learning designers to define the orchestration of teaching and learning activities in a unit of learning along with required services and learning objects.

A unit of learning described using OpenGLM can subsequently be deployed and used over and over again in any IMS LD compliant learning environment. The main goal of developing OpenGLM was to provide comprehensive and intuitive IMS LD modelling software, which reduces the complexity of the IMS LD specification to a degree where also non-technical users are enabled to build IMS LD conformant units of learning.

This website holds a collection of Learning Designs that can be used in primary, secondary or higher education courses. A Learning Design is a sequence of learning tasks with associated resources and supports that help students engage in those activities. Each Learning Design in this collection consists of a diagram and description. This is based on a method first used in the ICTs and their role in Flexible Learning project.

You can browse or search the collection any time. To download a user guide for the LDTool, and to learn more about our learning design research, visit Tools and Resources - Learning Design Research. We encourage you to sign up and share your great designs with others, either by contributing ones you create or adapting designs already in the collection.

Each has been created to help those involved in creating a course to identify, reflect on or solve issues associated with its design, planning and/or writing. Each is, therefore, a ‘tool’ that can be used as is or reversioned for your context. To create these tools we have drawn on existing academic, theoretical and practitioner research, existing tools, and the experience of the pilots themselves. Furthermore, they have been trialled both internally at the OU and externally across several other universities. In total over 200 staff have attended OULDI workshops where these tools and we have interviewed over 100 individuals.

Many more have tried them at conferences, individually or in other contexts supported by the projects. Our aim has been to help provide a selection of tools that an individual or team who are involved in curriculum design can chose from. Tools Activities Resources. Home - LDTool. OpenGLM - Open Graphical Learning Modeler — Informatik 5 (Information Systems) Open University Learning Design Initiative. The OU Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) started with institutional strategic funding in 2007 and has been funded by JISC under the Curriculum Design programme since September 2008. Our work is focused around several key questions: Our aim is to develop and implement a methodology for learning design composed of tools, practice and other innovation that both builds upon, and contributes to, existing academic and practioner research.

We have been working across several OU faculties and with 4 other universities to pilot curriculum design activities and relevant supporting tools and to contribute to the broader academic work in the subject. We have produced a range of tools which include: Additional outputs include: Our is underpinned by an ongoing programme of empirical work, aimed at getting a richer understanding of educational design processes.
