SynC-LD: Synchronous Collaborative IMS Learning Design Authoring on the Web

Year 2013
Abstract URL view
ISBN-13 978-3-642-40813-7

The IMS Learning Design (LD) specification enables the formal definition of teaching and learning flows. Several IMS LD authoring tools have been developed, most of them desktop based. There are few authoring tools that are deployed in a browser based environment, and some have built-in support for asynchronous collaboration during authoring via shared repositories. However, there are currently no tools available that enable synchronous, collaborative authoring in real-time. This demonstration presents SynC-LD, a novel widget-based tool that closes this gap. It supports browser-based, collaborative visual modeling of activity flows and the definition of IMS LD elements and their attributes. Multiple users can collaborate synchronously on the same learning design, which is achieved through inter-widget communication technology. Initial end-user trials show that the SynC-LD tool is usable and that IMS LD authors see potential in real-time IMS LD authoring.
