Content Packaging IMS Content Packaging v1.2 Public Draft v2.0 specification describes data structures that can be used to exchange data between systems that wish to import, export, aggregate, and disaggregate packages of content. IMS content packages enable exporting content from one learning content management system or digital repository and importing it into another while retaining information describing the media in the content package and how it is structured, such as a table of contents or which web page to show first. The IMS Content Packaging Specification focuses on the packaging and transport of resources but doesn’t determine the nature of those resources. This is because the specification allows adopters to gather, structure, and aggregate content in an unlimited variety of formats. Content Packaging v1.2 is undergoing standardisation by ISO/IEC.

Using Google Tools in Project-Based Learning Infographic Teacher Infographics Using Google Tools in Project-Based Learning Infographic Using Google Tools in Project-Based Learning Infographic Project-based learning is a dynamic approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge. Project-based learning should be student-driven, with a real-world connection. Overview of available GITTA modules Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter. The following links will redirect you to the according lesson. The GITTA teaching material on the website is continuously updated from the CVS repository and corresponds to the latest version. This means that content may change at any time if it is updated. If you need stable content, e.g. to teach classes, you are strongly advised to download the module(s) as SCORM / IMS package and import it into a learning environment such as Moodle or OLAT. Please contact the GITTA coordinator if you need an older version.
Spreading activation Spreading activation is a method for searching associative networks, biological and artificial neural networks, or semantic networks. The search process is initiated by labeling a set of source nodes (e.g. concepts in a semantic network) with weights or "activation" and then iteratively propagating or "spreading" that activation out to other nodes linked to the source nodes. Most often these "weights" are real values that decay as activation propagates through the network. When the weights are discrete this process is often referred to as marker passing.
