Innovación utilizando las TICs para el aprendizaje combinado. La pertinencia de una propuesta de blended learning en la universidad

A 3-year long non-conventional teaching and learning experience was undertaken, with technical support by CTER-Curriculum, Technology, and Education Reform Centre from the University of Illinois, USA – directed by Dr. Thomas H. Anderson – and technical assistance by Lic. Norma Scagnoli, in order to adjust ICT technologies to our local university context, respecting the students’ socio-cultural features and origins. At the same time, a research action was performed, so as to establish the pros and cons of the implementation, from the points of view of academic improvement, social interaction and pedagogical interactivity. The findings, further elaborated, will contribute to realize such local adjustments, also considering their possible application to other experiences, which might be undertaken with the aim of pursuing instructional innovation in Higher Education.

IMS Learning Design. Etude d’un langage de modélisation pédagogique

The aim of this paper is to present IMS Learning Design, an educational modelling language that provides a containment framework of elements that can describe any design of a teaching-learning process in a formal way. We replace this specification within its context and objectives, and then we describe the main elements, their scope and inter relations, before explaining the design method as it is proposed by the authors.
