Nutshell post for RIDLR

15 June 2012

The RIDLR project is funded under the Rapid Innovation strand of the third phase of the UKOER programme, by the Joint Informations Systems Committee (JISC) and Higher Education Academy (HEA).

In RIDLR we will test the release of contextually rich paradata via the JLeRN Experiment to the Learning Registry and harvest back paradata about prescribed and additional personally collected resources used within and to augment the MBBS curriculum, via our Dynamic Learning Maps system, to enhance the experience of teachers and learners.

RIDLR builds on existing JISC-funded projects; Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM), interactive curriculum and personal learning maps; and a JISC-CETIS miniproject to prototype OER-specific social bookmarking and seeks to integrate with Learning Registry data to encourage personalised learning and teaching experiences.

We will develop open APIs to harvest and release paradata on OER from end-users (bookmarks, tags, comments, ratings and reviews etc). These will in turn be openly released to the community, and use cases documented and shared.


140 character summary: Dynamic Learning Maps meets Learning Registry UK node (JLeRN) to harvest OERs for specific topics within curriculum and personal learning maps and share paradata.
