COLlaborative LeArning desiGn Editor
Collage helps users in the process of creating their own (collaborative) Learning Designs starting with existing patterns. These patterns are called CLFPs (Collaborative Learning Flow Patterns) and represent broadly accepted techniques that are repetitively used by collaborative learning practitioners when structuring the flow of types of learning activities involved in collaborative learning situations. That is, Collage enables an easy edition of potential effective IMS-LD Units of Learning by reusing and customizing best practices in collaborative learning structuring according to the requirements and conditions of a particular learning scenario.
An article about Collage is available here: Hernández-Leo, D, Villasclaras-Fernández, E. D., Asensio-Pérez, J. I, Dimitriadis, Y., Jorrín-Abellán, I. M., Ruiz-Requies, I.,& Rubia-Avi, B. (2006). COLLAGE: A collaborative Learning Design editor based on patterns. Educational Technology & Society, 9 (1), 58-71. A presentation based on this paper is also here.
Practice in a real settting of a design created using Collage is illustrated here.
Information about the example described in our paper for the ICALT'06 Workshop "Comparing Educational Modelling Languages" is available here.
