Last week the Language Centre‘s Herve Didiot-Cook (Language Co-ordinator, French) hosted visitors from Columbia & Brown Universities. The main purpose of the visit was to look at ways of sharing online teaching material across institutions. Staff from CLT were heavily involved in the meetings and the presentations which included:

  • Use of Drupal for organsing / storing teaching material (Columbia University)
  • The i-Tunes U pilot (Brown University)
  • Use of LAMS for creating sequences of online activities (LSE)
  • Overview of the UK’s JORUM repository (LSE)
  • Overview of Fedora software and the MIDESS Project (LSE)

Staff from all the institutions are keen to work together and pilot projects will follow soon to take this forward.  More later…
