Case studies

Applying Lessons Learnt from the L2O Project in the creation of an institutional repository of LOs and pedagogic assets (pdf, 261kb). By Miguel Arrebola, University of Portsmouth. This case study will describe how involvement with the processes and concepts explored by the L20 Project has influenced practice and philosophy in the School of Languages and Area Studies at the University of Portsmouth.

Developing a pedagogically-driven process model for L2O (pdf, 44kb). By Julie Watson, University of Southampton. This case study will present the pedagogically-driven process model developed for the L20 Project, which has tried and tested an approach to transforming online learning materials into 'reusable learning objects'.

Is this resource repurposable? (pdf, 118kb). By Alison Dickens, University of Southampton. This case will describe activities undertaken as part of two projects which explored e-learning in LLAS disciplines and investigated the feasibility of repurposing existing teaching resources in the form of learning objects to be shared via a repository.

Sharing Language Learning Objects (pdf, 77kb). By Joan McCormack, University of Reading. An L2O evaluation questionnaire was developed, with the aim of introducing CLARe (Contextual Learning Activity Repository) to partner institutions and members of the community of practice. This questionnaire gathered their responses to the search and download functionality of CLARe and the clarity of the metadata. This case study reports on the findings.

Building on the L2O experience (pdf, 652kb). By Marga Menendez-Lopez, University of Surrey. Building on the L2O experience: designing Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) as structured question banks.

Diagrams and forms

Pedagogically-led process model (pdf, 12kb). A diagram showing the pedagogical process of disaggregating learning resources, and then re-aggregating them to make learning objects.

Technical process model (pdf, 11kb). A diagram showing the technical process involved in converting existing learning resources into learning objects.

Asset Descriptor form (pdf, 54kb). A paper document which provides relevant L2O metadata categories in order to allow materials creators to catalogue the assets used in their online learning material accurately.

Learning Object Descriptor form (pdf, 93kb). A paper document which provides relevant L2O metadata categories in order to allow materials creators to catalogue their online learning materials accurately.

In-house metadata schema (xls, 65kb). A document which is a combination of UKLOMCORE (RLLOMAP) elements, and custom contextual elements (to reflect the teacher/learner context) that have been added into the LOM standard.

L2O metadata domain profile (gif, 123kb). The L2O metadata domain profile in graphical format.
