It was a real shame (I’m rarely disappointed) to have had to miss the JISC/CETIS Design Bash in Oxford today. I was very much looking forward to catching up with progress on the LDSE and sharing the SOLE model iteration described in Madison-Wisconsin in August. In the end the meeting I had to attend would have done fine without me, but that’s the way things fall and “beggars can’t be choosers” (or as we say in modern parlance, “the salaried do as they’re told”).
I imagine there was a great deal of interest in Oxford today. The pressure on organisations to share learning designs, share practice, and share efficacies shows no sign of abating. I look forward very much to catching up as best I can with what’s on Cloudworks for this years event.
Relocated Adobe Presenter ! Here’s one that went a little astray when we moved the DiAL-e space from a Wetpaint Wiki to WordPress. This is the Adobe Presenter Stand-alone presentation made for the JISC-UK Innovating e-Learning online Conference, October 2008. Whilst the framework has certainly matured in the last three years, this still serves as a good overview to the framework itself and some of its early exemplars.
Kevin Burden and I met today in Leicester to review our progress on the DiAL-e Framework project. The project, funded by JISC in 2007-08 has generated significant interest, two book chapters, an article in review, several project reports, a JISC hosted website, over 120 workshop participants and more besides. We decided today to revitalise this work and move our online presence from an existing Wiki to WordPress to better share this ongoing work and make it sustainable. Over the coming days and weeks this site will grow, and we hope it will be of genuine use to those looking to make better use of digital artefacts from our amazingly rich public collections in their teaching.
And the wonders of WordPress, it has already suggested a link! An ‘archive’ post from Linda Tambuyser for the ICTO Hubrussel Weblog from almost exactly a year ago. Look forward to growing this community!
