JISC Project 'ALLE' uses GLO Maker to create learning objects for digital literacies
Monday, 8 November 2010
The JISC-funded project 'Anytime Learning Literacies Environment' (ALLÉ) is using GLO Maker to create a series of GLOs to form Learning Journeys to help students develop digital literacy skills. A prototype of the journeys is currently being used by students at Thames Valley University and London Met. At the end of the project, after the journeys have been refined in the light of student evaluation, the journeys and the individual GLOs within them will be made available for other Institutions to use or adapt (using GLO Maker) for their own needs. The ALLE project is led by Thames Valley University, in partnership with London Met. See the prototype Learning Journeys | More information about the project is in the ALLE Project Wiki
New European project to develop and use GLO Maker
Monday, 13 September 2010
LTRI at London Met are partners in a successful European Lifelong learning Bid called EuroPLOT (Persuasive Learning Objects and Technologies for Lifelong Learning in Europe), worth 500,000 Euros. A key part of this project is further developing and using GLO Maker. The project is led by Janet Finlay at Leeds Metropolitan University, with partners in four European countries. EuroPLOT will extend GLO Maker by adding “persuasive learning patterns” and new components and activities. We will use these tools to create and then repurpose learning resources in four subject areas: language learning, environmental science, business computing and archival studies. The project will then evaluate the impact of the persuasive learning objects on learner engagement. The project will start in November 2010.
