Qi, Mei; Boyle, Tom – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
Open educational resources (OERs) are designed to be globally reusable. Yet comparatively little attention has been given to the cultural issues. This paper addresses the issue of culturally sensitive factors that may influence the design of reusable learning objects. These influences are often subtle and hard to manage. The paper proposes a…

Lane, Andy – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
This paper argues that designing collections of "closed" educational resources (content and technologies) for use by specific student cohorts and collections of open educational resources for use by any "learner" require different design approaches. Learning design for formal courses has been a research topic for over 10 years…

Browne, Tom; Holding, Richard; Howell, Anna; Rodway-Dyer, Sue – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The degree to which Open Educational Resources (OER) reflect the values of its institutional provider depends on questions of economics and the level of support amongst its academics. For project managers establishing OER repositories, the latter question--how to cultivate, nurture and maintain academic engagement--is critical. Whilst…

Windle, Richard J.; Wharrad, Heather; McCormick, Damion; Laverty, Helen; Taylor, Michael – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The open educational resource (OER) movement has the potential to have a truly transformative effect on higher education, but in order to do so it must move into the mainstream and facilitate widespread participation in the sharing or creating of resources and in their reuse. To help in this process, experience can be gained from projects and…

Greaves, Lyn; Roller, Sibel; Bradley, Claire – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The work reported here forms part of a UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded project (BL4ACE) (http://bl4ace.tvu.ac.uk/). This project built on previous work that evaluated the effectiveness of a learning design to underpin academic competence in a Business Studies degree. A significant concern of the blended learning design was to…

McAndrew, Patrick – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The release of free resources by the education sector has led to reconsideration of how the open approach implied by Open Educational Resources (OER) impacts on the educator and the learner. However this work has tended to consider the replication of standard campus based approaches and the characteristics of content that will encourage other…

Cook, John – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The nature of learning is being augmented by new digital tools, particularly by mobile devices and the networks and structures to which they connect people. In this paper I examine some longitudinal research "threads" that have pervaded my work over the last two decades: (i) the powerful perspectives on learning and development put…

The role of an educational technologist is difficult to define. This paper reflects on the experience of working on a range of technology enhanced learning in science projects to review a number of working principles which have proved effective in the practice of educational technology. It discusses how these principles relate to the theories in…

Madhyastha, Tara; Tanimoto, Steven – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2009
A number of educational researchers have developed pedagogical approaches that involve the teacher in discovering and helping to correct misconceptions that students bring to their study of their subject matter. During the last decade, several computer systems have been developed to support teaching and learning using this kind of approach. A…

Hillis, Peter; Calderhead, Drew – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2009
The subject based curriculum attracts lively debate in many countries being accused of fragmenting teaching and learning, erecting artificial barriers and failing to teach the skills required in the twenty first century (Hazlewood 2005). Cross-curricular rich tasks are increasingly seen as the means to develop relevant knowledge, understanding and…

San Diego, Jonathan P.; McAndrew, Patrick – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2009
Two small studies, one an "eye-tracking" study and the other a "remote observation" study, have been conducted to investigate ways to identify two kinds of online learner interactions: users flicking through the web pages in "browsing" action, and users engaging with the content of a page in "learning"…
