Forum OpenACS Development: Integration LORS, Assessment and Evaluation
We have an SCORM package with several types of learning resources: resources of webcontent type, assessments (labeled as imsqti_xmlvX) and a file describing the tasks and activities that students have to do (labeled as imsld_xmlvX). A resource labeled as imsld_xmlvX is a xml file compliant with IMS Learning Design Specification.
We want to upload this SCORM package (a course) to LORS package and that LORS detects automatically our types of learning resources and fills in the tables of GradeBook and Assessment packages.
Are you going to implement this? If nobody is going to do this, we will do it as soon as possible.
Right now only the assessment package has support to import lors content.
Is a LD engine, player, editor already builded for dotLRN? or there are open source integrations like coppercore, copperauthor,reload, LAMS in the dotLRN community?
I want to develop a LD editor and the integration with coppercore, but if somebody already do it, I can work in a different development.
The people from Uned have already integrated dotLRN to coppercore. Please check out their papre at the conference proceedings: http://www.dotlrn.org/conferences/Madrid05
All the above work is great but since the standards are changing very often, and we want to have a stable version of the package the code has to be clearly spearated so when a standards implementation is defunct, or work in progress or whatever it does not affect the rest of the IMS implementations
Do you know if someone is working on the LAMS/dotLRN integration?
Where can I see that RTE for LORS, do you have a demo site, specification or something? are you working on the IMS LD implementation for dotLRN or are you talking about LAMS?
We definitively don't want to waste resources re-writing something that is already done, we would prefer to collaborate in case we can use what is already being developed (and in case it is needed, of course ;)
Have you heard about aLFanet? (the slides/paper are in the dotlrn site - http://www.dotlrn.org/conferences/Madrid05/)
