Issue Date: 25-Oct-2005
Abstract: The context of the example is a course about “technical specifications for interoperable learning technology”. Participants read a paper entitled “The role of teachers in editing and authoring Units of Learning using IMS Learning Design”2 and (collaboratively) discuss about the contents of the paper. They have to achieve gradual consensus about good solutions to address the identified challenges regarding the way in which teachers can author Units of Learning using LD. The real scenario consists of 20 students (maximum). It is necessary to have in mind that this is not a fixed number, since some of the students might not attend the classes for several circumstances. The environment of the course could be either a face-to-face or a distance scenario. The example is designed for a synchronous session of 2 hours. The method is based on a Collaborative Learning Flow Pattern called Pyramid (or Snowball).
Description: This UoL has been created using Collage authoring tool. The example is explained in the Collage worksheet for the UNFOLD Communities of Practice meeting Glasgow, Scotland, 13th October 2005.
