All of these products are free, as is this seminar hosted by the Learning Technologies Group at Oxford University! This showcases use and integration of the most important tools through the use of the Bodington Open Source VLE system as an institutional-wide central authorisation and authentication store.
The talks and demonstrations are aimed at decision makers and potential users of the system who may be considering adopting or switching to an open source VLE. Bodington developers will be in attendance for discussion and user-requirements gathering for future development.
The final programme is currently under development but will include:
# Personal Development Planning, ePortfolios, Skills profiling and logbooks
# Blogs and RSS feeds for dynamic data provision
# Learning design sequences LAMS Open Source Software
# Sophisticated assessment using TOIA free software
# Federated searching tools to produce reading lists
# Granular authorisation through The Bodington Open Source VLE
# The JISC E-learning Framework gluing things together
# Shibboleth integration allowing cross-institutional collaboration
# What's new in current and imminent releases of Bodington
# Longterm directions of VLEs
