The JARDIN project proposes to create an Instructional Design Assistant that will help the teacher to
assemble learning objects and that will present students the relevant learning objects according with their
learning preferences.
In order to achieve this challenge learning objects (LO) need to be annotated by domain tailored metadata,
such as Learning Object Metadata, LOM. But normally, LO do not have sufficient metadata. This is natural
since the manual generation of metadata is an expensive task. One way to reach this goal is to use
Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS), such as Atutor, Moodle or Claroline One of the
characteristics of LCMS is that they allow authors to create course materials with the possibility to be
exported using standards like LOM. However, when authors already have previous materials, like e.g.
course’s web pages, it is not easy to incorporate them to the LCMS with clear semantics. Instead of
LCMS, there are several technologies that permit reusability, shareability and interoperability among web
applications. Ontologies and web standards, such as XML, RDF and OWL, allow the specification of
components in a standard way. Our proposed Pedagogical Assistant use these technologies to
automatically markup course web pages based on their content and to produce standard packages of
learning objects using SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) an ADL initiative.
The project has a delay but the causes were only financial at the beginning. Actually, the expected results
of the project have been achieved. Moreover, the considerado plan of gastos, allow to scheduled two
more activities, not plannified at he first stage of the project, but useful to contribute to the evaluation of the
proposed tools.
Avail ables Deliverables
We have decide to produce referee articles in spite of deliverables. In the section Publications of this
report you can find the articles produced in the scope of this project.
We have developed a number of prototypes, which can be free request through the homepage of the
project. The disponibles prototypes are:
Lookin4LO: the Extractor of Learning Objects with Metadata,
JARDIN Asistant: the Learning Object Recommender.
LOAD: the Federated Repository of Learning Objects.
Evaluation methods and data collected
We had collected Learning Objects with Metadata from courses from UNED (Spain), INESC (Portugal),
UNAM (Mexico), ESPOL (Ecuador) and UdelaR (Uruguay) and also from documents from the MISTICA
Partial Meeting: UdelaR, UFRGS and UEL, Londrina, June 2010.
Partial Meeting: UdelaR,ESPOL and UNR at LACLO 2010, Sao Paulo, September 2010.
