Macbeth-Sleep Walking Scene
From the 1979 version of Macbeth, this is a clip of the sleep walking scene of the movie. This shows an excellent performance of the Shakespearean play. This clip can be used for scene analysis, character analysis, or reflection.
Learning Objects 2: Standards, Metadata, Repositories, and LCMS
This book is the second in a four-volume series. It builds upon the first volume by taking an extended and in-depth look at theorists' and practitioners' efforts to consolidate current knowledge and praxis. This consolidation centers around conceptual and technological issues related to standards, metadata, repositories, and the concept of the LCMS (Learning Content Management System). Part I contains six chapters that focus upon LO concepts vis-à-vis architecture. A discussion of syntax, seman
Lunch in Outer Space!
Students learn about the unique challenges astronauts face while eating in outer space. They explore different food choices and food packaging. Students learn about the engineering design process, and then, as NASA engineering teams, they design and build original model devices to help astronauts eat in a microgravity environment --- their own creative devices for food storage and meal preparation.

Technology innovation drives the current elearning market but recent events suggest this model is failing economically. Alternately a market driven by learners, rather than technology is more likely to be competitive and profitable. We examine elearning within the context of a developing academic and skills educational market to pose the question: do existing suppliers (old and new) meet the new market needs? Using Porters competitive environment model to analyse the current market position of
In this paper we are giving an example of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can enhance the process of Teacher training, and how this can be used for Lifelong Competence Development of teachers. We show how one particular methodology for teaching and training soft skills can be further enhanced by the use of ICT. We show how the use of Learning Design centred software platform for lifelong competence development can enhance the in-service training of teachers.
This chapter discusses the role of ICT as a catalyst of a new global educational reform in schools aimed to break the monopoly of the print and paper based educational system. Some basic definitions are given although it is emphasized that the area is very dynamic and the definitions are still evolving. The main conclusion related to the ongoing educational reform is that it is based on designing and using different virtual learning environments which do not put clear boundary between physical a
In this text, we report on a research project developed within the European research team TELMA (Technology Enhanced Learning in MAthematics) of the Kaleidoscope network of excellence created in 2004. We describe the conceptual and methodological tools we have progressively built for allowing productive research collaboration and overcoming the difficulties resulting from the diversity and heterogeneity of our respective theoretical backgrounds. We also show how these tools have contributed to g
The aim of this document is to: a) provide a description of the Gap Analysis framework and the methodology we have used in PROLEARN roadmap (section 1: Methods) and b) present the Gap analysis results (section 2: Implementations).,Research report of the ProLearn Network of Excellence (IST 507310), Deliverable 12.12
One of the biggest challenges that higher learning institutions face today is to improve the quality of managerial decisions. The managerial decision making process becomes more complex as the complexity of educational entities increase. Educational institute seeks more efficient technology to better manage and support decision making procedures or assist them to set new strategies and plan for a better management of the current processes. One way to effectively address the challenges for improv
This paper presents a conceptual analysis of the technological dimensions related to the operationalization of CSCL macro-scripts. CSCL scripts are activity models that aim at enhancing the probability knowledge generative interactions such as conflict resolution, explanation or mutual regulation occur during the collaboration process. We first recall basics about CSCL scripts and macro-scripts. Then, we propose an analysis of some core issues that must be made explicit and taken into account wh
This paper describes the design of Portfolio and its application at FH JOANNEUM in a range of contexts where it will be used to make learning outcomes visible and to facilitate personal development planning. The flexibility of the ePortfolio architecture is appraised and the integration with virtual learning environments is discussed. Preliminary findings from evaluation studies (feedback / data obtained from students, graduates and staff evaluations and discussions, and relevant points arising
Taxonomy is a classification effort for establishment of learning/teaching operational objectives. There are some famous taxonomies, Blooms being the most quoted. In spite of the fact that some researchers have tried to explain the position of elearning in already known taxonomies, this subject was not too much in the general attention. In the paper the authors intend to go deeply and to analyze the position of the new methodology-remote experiment-in the actual taxonomies. In addition they ha
When we spoken about remote engineering as a new methodology used in the cyberspace with the final goal of the teaching/learning improvement and cost sharing, we are obliged to approach all of the process sides. Assessment is one of these sides and there is considered the most powerful tool for illustration, in the qualitative and quantitative ways, the learners responds at educational objectives offered by the remote engineering learning environment. In the present paper the authors have the in
The present paper describes e-CNA (e-Collaborative Narrative Analysis), a web based multi-agent environment where different agents contribute to the exploration and social co-construction of the meanings of a set of narratives. The paper also describes an action-research e-learning experiment aimed to involve the students of different courses and a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals in a blended online educational project on qualitative and quantitative research methodologies in hea
In this study we investigated undergraduate teacher trainees' use of wikis, focusing on the use of shared spaces to communicate ideas and generate course specific content. We explored how students, through such activities, were to able to improve their academic writing skills. We discuss writing as a social practice and discuss how wikis might promote better academic writing. With data derived from student discussion boards and a post-module e-mail questionnaire (N=35) our findings indicate that
A virtual collaborative environment was created at East Carolina University, using videoconference technology via regular internet to bring students from 18 different countries, 2 at a time, to the same classroom in real time to learn about each others culture. Students from two countries are partnered one on one,, they meet for 4-5 weeks, and submit a joint paper. Then the same process is repeated for two other countries. Lectures and student discussions are managed with pre-determined topics
Champlain College, a leader in both online and international education, uses the Internet to create Global Modules that link the students and faculty at two or three international educational institutions for shared online readings, discussion and teamwork. Students at Champlain have used the Global Modules format to discuss womens issues with students in the U.A.E., terrorism with Jordanian students, globalization with Indian students, the peace movement with Austrian students and the Lebanon
