AbstractNadolski, R. J. (2011, 21 June). EMERGO - Methodology and toolkit for sustainable development of e-cases. Presentation at the GaLA Alignment, School Edinburgh, UK.
EMERGO provides a method and open source toolkit for an efficient development and delivery of multimedia e-cases that enable the acquisition of complex cognitive skills in higher education. SurfFoundation has partially funded the joint development of e-cases and toolkit by several Dutch institutes in higher education. The OUNL developed EMERGO method and toolkit, provided teacher professionalization for developing and using e-cases, and participated during the development of most e-cases. The EMERGO-toolkit is further developed within current projects.
An EMERGO e-case is delivered through the Internet, and often aims learners to
- study (together) at a distance
- actively acquire complex skills
- within the context of a multimedia and realistic practice
- through pedagogical-, simulation- and gaming elements
- by using a mixture of both embedded and real-life guidance, including peer feedback
The lecture will provide an overview of the EMERGO method, the toolkit and its evaluation results with case developers towards usability, and effectiveness of e-cases. Advantages and limitations of the current method and toolkit will be discussed
This project is partially funded under the European Community Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007 2013), Grant Agreement nr. 258169
