I’ve been looking around the Online Conference, and it feels a bit like walking around the BETT show before the doors open.
There are 18 “exhibits” (not sure that’s the right term for such interactive things) in the Have a Go area, which is a huge number, and they are all absolutely fascinating.
One that intrigued me is CompendiumLD, a Java app that supports Learning Design. I’ve been aware of IMS LD as a standard since about 2004, and I’d toyed with the RELOAD LD tool, but I wasn’t really convinced it was something I’d use as a lecturer.
CompendiumLD seems to go a long way to making the whole process usable, by providing a graphical interface in the style of a mindmapping tool.
I was lucky enough to catch up with Rebecca Galley and Gráinne Conole at a recent JISC event, and Gráinne gave a summary of CompendiumLD . (apologies for the sound quality)
The Conference runs from the 23rd – 26th November 2010, BUT the pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area.
See you there!
Book online – early registration advisable for full participation in the pre-conference week
