Jack Suess - Using IMS Standards to Advance Next-Generation Digital Learning Environments (NGDLE)
From Kathryn Gentilello on February 28th, 2019
The NGDLE is a vision for a learning ecosystem not a detailed technical specification. As such, the NGDLE will evolve over time as technology matures and the research in teaching & learning identifies effective practices. This talk focuses on what Jack Suess (UMBC) believes to be three essential elements for success:
1. The role of standards in building a learning ecosystem, the most important standards to follow, and why standards such as Open Badges, Comprehensive Learning Record, and LTI-Advantage are essential for interoperability and integration;
2. The importance of learning analytics in advancing effective practices in course design and pedagogy, student graduation and retention, and personalization of learning; and
3. The importance of universal design principles to think more broadly about accessibility of learning resources and to move beyond a course-centric view of learning.
