Learning Roadmap Studio: eLearning 2.0 based web platform for deploying and editing learning roadmaps
AbstractAbstract— Technologies and learning platforms approaches are changing each day, one of the reasons for it is that organizations, enterprises and institutions are growing and producing more knowledge, whereas workers are becoming knowledge workers and need to be adapted for the fast change and share of information. From past experience, it has been denoted that strategies and pedagogical processes are tasks that can be created, enriched and boosted by actors who participate in learning and training processes: course managers, teachers and students. The challenge posed to the different actors involved also accelerates the changes that have been happening in education and training, empowering a society based on knowledge. Thus, it has been developed a new platform, Learning Roadmap Studio, which powers eLearning 2.0 concepts, that tends to promote more efficient learning and training. For teachers and course managers, it enables the creation, edition and deployment of learning roadmaps, that can be edit by students in order to communicate and share their knowledge among the learning community. For the students, the learning roadmap aims at promoting self-study and supervised study, endowing the pupil with the capabilities to find the relevant information and to capture the concepts in the study materials. The outcome will be a stimulating learning process together with an organized management of those materials. It is not intended to create new learning management systems. Instead, it is presented as an application that enables the edition and creation of learning processes and strategies, giving primary relevance to teachers, instead of focusing on tools, features and contents.
