A Service-Oriented Virtual Learning Environment

Michael Feldstein, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Jul 10, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a guest post by Andrew G. Booth and Brian P. Clark for On the Horizon series on distributed learning. "Our position in the learning environment debate can be summarised by the following statement. As well as students being able to create their custom learning environments, we believe that it is important that teachers, too, are able to create their custom teaching environments." As an alternative to the current crop of monolithic VLE, "we are currently developing a Service-Oriented Virtual Learning Environment (SOVLE) that is composed of a set of pluggable resources that have Web application front ends and Web service back ends." More info about the "we are developing" piece would be appreciated. How far along is this project? Will this be open source or open architecture or not open at all? Will non-geek faculty be able to handle and navigate this environment? -BD
