IEEE FIE 2008 Saratoga Paper 1197

  1. 1. Providing Instructional layers of abstraction in Authoring Tools for Engineering Education Content Frontiers in Education Conference Saratoga Springs, NY (2008) Miguel R. Artacho, UNED University (Spain) [email_address]
  2. 2. Authoring tools <ul><li>Aggregate content based on LT specifications </li></ul><ul><li>Low level of abstraction </li></ul><ul><li>Mostly driven by the LT tags </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Proposal of an abstract layers stack and a design model </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Knowledge domain  </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional template (Learning Design Model) </li></ul><ul><li>Conceptualization </li></ul><ul><li>Instantiation </li></ul>An ortogonal view for authoring
  4. 4. An ortogonal view for authoring <ul><li>Conceptualization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Knowledge domain ontology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning design abstract model (visual languages for LD) or instructional templates </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Instantiation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Topic map based on a given ontology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LT-based content with references to LOs </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Ontologies in e-learning <ul><li>Entities and relationships within knowledge domain </li></ul><ul><li>Axioms, rules and constrains of the entities of the ontology </li></ul><ul><li>Allow content interoperability at a “knowledge level” ( A. Newel, 1982 ) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ontology An educational domain modelization (Scientific domain)
  7. 7. Instance
  8. 8. Structure vs. Knowledge domain <ul><li>Knowledge domain </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Based on instructional ontologies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Growable and maintainable </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… Ready for Web 2.0! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Structure and Learning Design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Different templates for different purposes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integrate activities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content retrieved using high level queries </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Levels of abstraction <ul><li>Content level : retrieve, embed or links to the appropriate LO. We consider only a low granularity component at this level. </li></ul><ul><li>Structure level : provide hierarchical decomposition of the learning environment. This level provides an explicit description of the table of contents that can be incorporated to the information model. </li></ul><ul><li>Task level : definition of learning processes, collaborative activities and grading type. </li></ul><ul><li>Sequencing level : Scheduling of modules and tasks, time restrictions and instructional dependencies between modules. </li></ul><ul><li>Management level : considers interoperability issues between learning content and virtual learning environment (VLE). </li></ul>

  16. 16. Some conclusions <ul><li>Authoring educational content can be improved by means of abstraction </li></ul><ul><li>A 2-axis based abstraction model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Modelling instructional knowledge domain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Modelling instructional template (learning design) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Some future work is possible… </li></ul>

  18. 18. Integrating SW for e-learning with web 2.0 <ul><li>Domain models and instances are growable by the social web </li></ul><ul><li>Content material can keep semantic labels form conceptualizations </li></ul><ul><li>Social rating can provide metadata </li></ul>
