Achieving E-learning with IMS Learning Design--Workflow Implications at the Open University of the Netherlands
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 8, No. 3 (2005) pp. 216–225
This paper uses the Open University of the Netherlands as an instructive case for the introduction of e-learning based on the IMS Learning Design specification (IMS LD). The IMS LD specification, as approved by the IMS Global Learning Consortium in...
Educational Practitioners as Designers of Seamless Learning: Lessons From a Seamless Learning Scenarios Design Experience
World Conference on Mobile and Contextual Learning 2020 (Oct 11, 2020) pp. 133–141
In theory, seamless learning design and research with its focus on bridging gaps in learning across contexts can help formulate answers to educational challenges. The recent mass lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic causing education to urgently...

Distance Learning Providers serve large populations of learners, frequently offering the same course to different groups of learners over lengthy periods of time. This article argues that (re-) running e-learning courses with different combinations...
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 15, No. 2 (August 2007) pp. 117–126
In this article we describe a system that matches learners with complementary content expertise in reaction to a learner-request for knowledge sharing. It works through the formation of "ad hoc," transient communities, that exist for a limited...
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 13, No. 1 (2005) pp. 55–69
This article investigates conditions for increasing active participation in on-line communities. As a case study, we use three generations of facilities designed to promote learning in the area of Educational Modelling Languages. Following a...
Effects of Peer-Tutor Competences on Learner Cognitive Load and Learning Performance during Knowledge Sharing
International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) 2012 (October 2012)
In Learning Networks, learners need to share knowledge with others to build knowledge. In particular, when working on complex tasks, they often need to acquire extra cognitive resources from others to process a high task load. However, without...
International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) Vol. 3, No. 2008 (Jul 16, 2008)
This article argues that the TENCompetence ePortfolio definition should integrate rhetorical, pedagogical, social, and technical perspectives. The rhetorical perspective is needed to show the learnerâ??s competences, achievements and history; the...
