APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

Unfortunately, too many vendors in the e-learning space have failed to see the power and potential of this capability, and have decided to ignore them. An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup). Hmm, mobile learning pushed to the next level? Adaptive Learning with a Social Q/A twist. Mashups.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process. As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. To make matters worse, for learners, the sole point of access to learning content has been the LMS. Mash-ups and on-demand publishing.

It's a movement against the commoditization of learning and against corporate profiteering. 2) Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) and in particular Learning Management Systems (LMSs) contribute toward restrictive practices in education and constrain both learner and teacher to operate within a model of learning that is insitutionally beneficial, but does little for the learner themselves.

The first decade of the 21st Century was highly significant for personal learning. If we time jumped from then to 2009, the way we now communicate, learn, search for information, share content and consume entertainment would be unrecognisable. The concept of personal learning environments was also introduced, as a counterpoint to the notion of the VLE. We will then see how these can be applied to enhance and extend the personal learning environment.and of course.
