Title: New directions for lifelong learning using network technologies
Authors: Koper, Rob
Tattersall, Colin
Keywords: Learning Design
Lifelong Learning
Issue Date: 29-Sep-2004
Abstract: The requirements placed on learning technologies to support lifelong learning differ considerably from those placed on technologies to support particular fragments of a learning lifetime. The time scales involved in lifelong learning, together with its multi-institutional and episodic nature are not reflected in today’s mainstream learning technologies and their associated architectures. The article presents an integrated model and architecture to serve as the basis for the realization of networked learning technologies serving the specific needs and characteristics of lifelong learners. The integrative model is called a “Learning Network” (LN) and its requirements and architecture are explored, together with the ways in which its application can help in reducing barriers to lifelong learning.
