X4L - Exchange for Learning - Video

X4L - Exchange for Learning - Video

For the last 10 years or so I've been involved in developing elearning approaches for health and social care primarily using commercial packages such as WebCT and Blackboard.

During the last 4 years work on
NMAP I have become acutely aware of the importance of sharing Learning Objects - as they are very expensive and time intentsive to create -and using appropriate metadata to ensure they can be found by others while taking account of interoperability, copyright & IPR issues.

Regular readers of this blog will also be aware of my comments about the NHSu Virtual Learning Environment and I think they would benefit from being involved in this sort of work.

Currently, I am part of a team considering bidding under the JISC call Circular 9/04: Call for Projects to Produce Learning Materials for Deposit in the JORUM National Repository - Exchange for Learning (X4L) Phase 2

A colleague has today pointed my to a Video on the X4L page which gives a very good demonstration of what is needed to put learning objects into the JORUM library and using the RELOAD tool and aggregating these into new elearning courses.

NB video is a very large file - Don't try it over a 56k modem
