Abstract: This deliverable describes the objectives, approach, planning and results of the second pilot round, and updates the validation design for round 3. The objectives of the second pilot round were directed towards enhancing the quality of the software services in the next round and beginning to measure the success of the individual services. Validation activities took place at eight pilot sites with stakeholders (learners, tutors, teaching managers), preceded by technical verification. A small-scale study on transferability of the software took place within the LTfLL team. Results demonstrated that the LTfLL software provides effective solutions to pedagogic problems of feedback and knowledge acquisition, subject to enhancements identified during validation. There is strong evidence for integrating the feedback services with a knowledge acquisition service. Software elements for replacement or further development were identified. The transferability study showed that language technologies appear to be most appropriate for problem-based and self-regulated learning. A number of barriers to adoption were identified. In conclusion, the pilots have met their objectives for the second pilot round. The goals of the final pilot round are to support exploitation of the services through providing evidence of the utility of the services and factors affecting their adoption, and to inform the end of project road map, through extended full pilots and validation associated with dissemination activities.
