In December’s issue, I mentioned the assistance that companies can receive from UKISHELP at www.ukishelp.co.uk when making bids for European Union finance to support new projects. The EASEL project is an example that already has such support. It is addressing the standards-based provision of online learning based on state-of-the-art repository technologies. The objective is to offer educators an environment in which they can readily combine existing learning objects to create new online educational offerings. The work involves the development of an XML metadata repository for storing descriptions of learning objects, assessment modules for interrogating objects, a web-based search gateway and a construction kit. See www.fdgroup.com/easel for more details.
