Edu Apps for Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)

Edu Apps for Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Shouldn't every VLE/LMS provider now allow the users to plug in to these amazing external applications?

 

Surely the days of systems that only offer a fixed set of features, decided upon by the business itself, are coming to an end?

 

Can you imagine a VLE that allows users integration with these features - imagine much richer, rewarding and personalised the learning environment would be?

 

Simplistic I know but no harm dreaming about it. http://www.imsglobal.org/lti/7things.pdf has much more on this subject

Reality check - Open Source LMS: a costly affair - eLearning Industry

Reality check - Open Source LMS: a costly affair - eLearning Industry | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

What is the Cost of an Open Source LMS? This article is for demystifying the actual cost of Moodle - The most popular open source LMS. Article written for US business/organisations but very useful for schools, colleges, nonetheless.

gideonwilliams's insight:

Not something that should be taken lightly but then again without local expert knowledge these costs have to be borne somehow - especially at a school level.

 

Would be interesting to compare these costs against those of the companies who will support your VLE eg Synergy, WebAnywhere etc

Becta - Publications - Learning platforms: Steps to adoption

Becta - Publications - Learning platforms: Steps to adoption | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

This guidance is to help schools use the learning platform as part of everyday practice. It allows teachers and schools to identify successes, plot progress and plan to transform their school by using the learning platform and other technology.

At 41 pages, it might be a bit of a slog but it contains some really good information. The section on "Which step has my school reached?" is a very powerful one when it comes to looking strategically at VLE use in your school.

 

Whilst BECTa was a UK organisation I am pretty sure this document can be used anywhere.

 

if the site goes down, I have a copy if you want to tweet me @moodle2mahara
