Abstract (German)

Bei dem Begriff "Lernumgebungen" denkt man schnell an schulische Lernsoftware oder an institutionelle E-Learing-Plattformen wie etwa Learn@WU. Das EU-Forschungsprojekt "Responsive Open Learning Environments" (ROLE, 7. Rahmenprogramm) zielt darauf ab, die tradierten, stark formal vorgegebenen Lernansätze und -lösungen zu hinterfragen (das sog. formale Lernen) und stärker auf individuelle Lernansätze und -bedürfnisse einzugehen. Dabei finden Plattformen und Dienste des Internets genauso Berücksichtigung wie die soziale Vernetzung von Lernenden, die Zusammenarbeit mit anderen und die notwendigen Medien- und Methodenkompetenzen.

Im Rahmen des Projekts sollen bestehende Lernumgebungen durch unterschiedlichste Werkzeuge und Interoperabilitätsmechanismen erweitert werden, um eine größere Bandbreite an Lernerbedürfnisse abzudecken, die Entwicklung von wichtigen Fertigkeiten und Kompetenzen zu unterstützen und gemäß dem Web 2.0 Paradigmen die Massen-individualisierung von Lernerfahrungen zu ermöglichen. Lernende erhalten zudem mehr Kontrolle über die Gestaltung der Lernumgebung. Eine dem entsprechend lerner-zentrierte, personalisierbare Lösung einer Lernumgebung, wie sie im ROLE Projekt anvisiert wird, soll Lernende dabei unterstützen, dass sie bestehende Software und Plattformen für ihre Zwecke hinsichtlich der von ihnen gewünschten Funktionalitäten adaptieren oder die Lernumgebungen sogar zur Gänze selbst gestalten können.

Das Projekt untersucht des Weiteren, in wie weit sich dieser Grundgedanke für das lebenslangen Lernen jenseits der formalen Ausbildungsschiene eignet. Das Projekt fokussiert speziell auf Übergänge zwischen unterschiedlichen Kontexten des lebenslangen Lernens, also beispielsweise das Vorbereiten auf eine neue Funktion oder Arbeitsstelle, die Weiterbildung im Beruf durch Alumni-Learning und externe Schulungen oder das Training für die Zusammenarbeit in einem Team.


Abstract (English)

ROLE’s cross- disciplinary innovations will deliver and test prototypes of high responsive TEL environments, offering breakthrough levels of effectiveness, flexibility, user-control and mass-individualisation. The work of ROLE will advance the state-of-the-art in human resource management; self-regulated and social learning; psycho-pedagogical theories of adaptive education and educational psychology; service composition and orchestration; and the use of ICT in lifelong learning.

ROLE offers adaptivity and personalization in terms of content and navigation and the entire learning environment and its functionalities. This approach permits individualization of the components, tools, and functionalities of a learning environment, and their adjustment or replacement by existing web-based software tools. Learning environment elements can be combined to generate (to mashup) new components and functionalities, which can be adapted by lone learners or collaborating learners to meet their own needs and to enhance the effectiveness of their learning. This empowers each user to generate new tools and functions according to their needs, and can help them to establish a livelier and personally more meaningful learning context and learning experience.

ROLE’s generic framework uses an open source approach, interoperable across software systems and technology. Hence any tool created by an individual is available from a pool of services and tools to all learners via the internet, no matter which learning environment, operating system, or device they use, and which subject matter they learn.

Respective activities have been defined to bring the results of ROLE to the targeted international markets in higher education and corporate training. Thus, significant benefits arise for the learners, their communities, employer, TEL developers and society.
