Evaluation Study … part 1

March 25, 2009

Over the last few days I have been testing the metadata generator with some willing participants (3 in total). There were four parts to this study. The first task set comprised of a series of find and complete tasks aimed at testing the intuitiveness of the interface and terminology. Participants at this stage weren’t privy to ...

It’s amazing what you find ..

March 25, 2009

… as deadlines loom. Have no idea why I haven’t previously bloged these, possibly intended to use in some report some where. Regardless, early on I went on a hunt to see what independent tools already existed out there regarding metadata. During this I came across a couple of interesting reports from CETIS: Learning ...

The Sharing Vision

March 23, 2009

Prompted by the visit to Belfast we decided it would be a good idea to formally examine our (Leeds met) sharing philosophy regarding LOs. As this hasn’t been previously represented I also thought it might be a good idea to model pre and post sharing with regard to the repository. Again I have fallen back ...

Reporting on Belfast Metropolitan College Visit

March 16, 2009

Although I originally planed to do a day by day account of our visit to Belfast Met I decided that this would not give a coherent and clear view of the workflows that they have developed. Also Nick has already voiced the more personal aspects of the visit, so I won’t be repeating them here. ...

Even more use cases …

March 06, 2009

Back in April last year I did a second round of use cases on LO and repository workflows from project members. One set was left till later as it wasn’t quite complete. Still not complete, there is a set of seven use cases of which I managed to get an overview and two specific scenarios ...

All set for Belfast

February 26, 2009

Had my first video conference today, which went rather well considering how I feel about cameras of any sort. Regardless, the conference was with Pat and Paul from Belfast Met who we (Nick and I) will be visiting very soon. They have a greater experience of using learning objects then we do here in Leeds. ...

iGoogle

December 09, 2008

Started looking into the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) the other day. Downloaded all the kit and got everything working, almost within the Eclipse IDE. The tutorial I used didn’t completely work but I got the general idea. Next the API’s samples and a web app of my own. Its going to be a busy week. ...

Visit from intraLibrary

November 27, 2008

I spent most of today with Nick and Peter from Interlect resolving some of the issues with the repository. The discussion revolved around getting intraLibrary to do what we want in terms of learning objects (LOs). I haven’t had a great deal of time previously to play with the system and it was a good ...
