Forum .LRN Q&A: Usage of .LRN in aDeNu Research Projects



Current works relate to FAA and EU4ALL Projects.

As you can see in the corresponding paper and poster, FAA (Open and Accessible Training) is based on .LRN to support accessible standard-based (IMS, SCORM) collaborative and adaptive courses along the full life cycle of eLearning.

In turn, EU4ALL (European Unified Approach for Accessible Lifelong Learning) aims to build an open and accessible service architecture for all to cope with the accessibility requirements in higher education institutions in Europe. OpenACS toolkit (using the web services support developed by Wien) is going to be used.

Could someone with site wide on dotLRN please post this as a news item on

Olga would it make sense to link to the posters and papers from the dotlrn user page?

Great work! We need to spread the word about what people are doing.

How do we get on that page about users?

At NCC Education we have adopted dotLRN and have about 8,000 users increasing to around 20,000 next year.


You can write the case study, once is ready send us an email for further steps. The same for anyone, we are looking forward for more case studies of using .LRN.

I'm back from from mICTE conference where I presented our research works (see initial post) and I would like to give you some feedback of other works dealing with .LRN.

  • “Aula Virtual”: An e-learning management platform of Universitat de València Development based on Open Code and Collaborative Software by P. Moreno Clari, V. Cerverón Lleó.
  • Adaptivity in e-learning by Filip KAREL. The full text (which I currently have in paper, but they have told me that they are going to upload them in the conference website) concludes that: "We compared particular features of different systems and put emphasis on user friendliness of adaptivity. Moodle and .LRN systems appeared to be the best at the moment". Moreover, they provide a comparison table for .LRN, Docebo, Moodle, Dokeos, ATutor and Claroline with the following scores for .LRN (1=poor, 5=excellent) and considering user friendliness and possibility of adaptation: a) Document publishing: (4); b) Calendar: (5); c) Chat/Forums: (3); d) Grades/Tests: (4); e)Surveys: (4). They have chosen Moodle for their practical experience, which scores as follows (in the same order): 3, 5, 4, 5, 4.
  • I also met Jan Markovic and Joanna Kisielewska who are dealing with using Moodle and .LRN together. Effective cross-cultural collaboration in on-line environment: iCamp project perspective. The abstract does not provide too much info, but they are working with Gustaf Neumann, so he may provide more details. I found this link with a .LRN sandbox.
Regarding the suggestion of linking the papers and posters from aDeNu work in the .LRN Users' page and providing a use case, the problem is the time. I hope that after .LRN release Emma and I can work on it.
