Technology and Education: adaptation of TPACK model in the LMS adopted by CIHEAM IAMB

The LMS seems the most favourable solution for the application of different but complementary types of knowledge useful for technology based instruction. To test this assumption, the TPACK model was applied to the LMS adopted by CIHEAM Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari IAMB after a ten year experience of eLearning focused on the collaborative approach. Based on the experience carried out by MAIB, it results that the selected LMS Claroline is compatible with the philosophy expressed in the TPACK model, as it is equipped with appropriate tools to meet the teacher needs in the application of the pedagogical knowledge, content knowledge and technological knowledge. Moreover, in this article, the above knowledge is identified and localized in the selected platform to understand whether and how is the TPACK model suitable for this particular environment.

Modalities of using Learning Objects for Intelligent Agents in learning

This article details some common characteristics of applications using intelligent agents as they relate to learning objects as software systems in delivering education. Readapting learning objects to different categories of learnenrs constitutes a challenge for intelligent agents in their effort to provide a large scale of collaboration between different e-learning organizations. In order not only to have efficient access to learning objects, but also to offer to learners tutoring and mentoring help, collaborative and cooperative learning strategies, learning advancements, and social interactions, intelligent agents have been highly recommended by a number of researchers. This study investigates how these e-learning applications are designed, how student`s differences are explored, and how these software systems are able to improve learning and teaching performances.

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.
