CREATE

Give access to digitally skilled teachers to the authoring tool INDIeAuthor, which is being developed within the Digital Content Production Center (in spanish CPCD) of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena. INDIeLearning is an innovative tool which allows authors with no programming knowledge to, after a simple training, produce rich digital content for online publication. INDIeLearning acts as a proxy to create HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript5 based documents and includes different components that can be used out of the box by the authors: gamification module (definition of badges, points and leaderboards) and a learning analytics module (teachers and parents can monitor the interaction of the students with the learning units).

SHARE

Develop a repository, INDIeOpen, for publication of learning units created with INDIeAuthor. The repository will include a search functionality and a rating system with inclusion of comments. Once selected in the repository a learning unit can be easily linked from any e-learning system with LTI standard compliance (Moodle, Sakai, Blackboard, etc…). On completion of the project, the repository will be prepared for a broader use: on a first step, more teachers as users (“consumers” of existing learning units for their class) can be incorporated, and on a second step, calls for authors will be launched, in order to gradually enrich the repository.

LEARN

Produce a set of of open learning units and upload them to the repository from a variety of subjects and school levels. The first course that will be made available publicly on the repository will be an introduction to INDIeLearning itself, as part of the training material for teachers/authors. Moreover, a second course on Copyright and licences will also be prepared using the platform: authors in the project will be requested to take the course to ensure awareness about intellectual property issues in digital contents creation, and on the other hand, the course will be made public and widely advertised so that educational bodies like universities, schools, libraries, etc. can freely use the course in the programs they organise related to area 3 “Digital content creation” of the Digital Competence Framework 2.0.
