Calibrating eLearning in schools

Calibrating eLearning in schools

Objective

CALIBRATE brings together eight Ministries of Education, (including six MoEs from new member states), leading research institutions, validation experts, technology providers and SMEs to carry out a multi-level project designed to support the collaborative use and exchange of learning objects/resources in schools. The project will strengthen the integration of ICT research in an Enlarged Europe by initially building on three successful IST projects in order to: further develop and implement an open source brokerage system architecture as the basis for a European Learning Resource Exchange (LRE); develop an open source learning toolbox to support the collaborative use of learning resources accessed via the LRE; carry out research into new ways to improve the semantic interoperability of learning resource descriptions; validate CALIBRATE project results in up to 100 schools using an advanced validation methodology.

The CALIBRATE Brokerage System implementation developed in the project will provide a strategic level of integration at an infrastructure level. It will act as a catalyst for the development of learning content repositories in all countries but particularly in some new member states where the development of national repositories is still at an early stage. Participating in CALIBRATE will allow these countries to leverage the expertise and knowledge gained in a number of IST projects and in old and new member states that have already made significant progress towards implementing large educational content repositories at a national level.

Work in the project on semantic interoperability and the development of an open source, learning toolbox will also make a significant contribution towards consolidating the expertise of leading researchers from old and new member states who are active in the fields of collaborative learning, curriculum mapping, Topic Maps, and IMS Learning Design.

Dissemination of project results will be driven by the MoEs.
