Grapple Presence EC-TEL

Posted by Admin at Sep 18, 2009 05:14 PM |

Grapple is present at the EC-TEL conference in Nice! There will be a (bi-yearly) meeting (private), two Grapple related workshops and a Grapple tutorial.

There will be a GRAPPLE meeting during the EC-TEL 2009 conference in Nice. The meeting is a regular bi-yearly meeting of the executive project management board to check progress status, identifying bottlenecks and planning of the activities in the near future.

The meeting will be held on September 29, 2009, between 18:00 and 22:00, in the NOVOTEL NICE.

This is at the end of the first workshop day of the EC-TEL conference. Two Grapple related workshops will be organized at EC-TEL!

On the morning of September 29 Alexandra Cristea is co-organizing the A3H workshop. The workshop targets work on design, implementation and evaluation of general Adaptive and Adaptable (Educational) Hypermedia, with special emphasis on major trends in web authoring and the design and creation of web material:

In the afternoon of that same day Katja Pechenezhskaya and Paul De Bra are organizing the LMS-ALE workshop. The aim of this workshop is to bring researchers together who are working on any aspect of the whole problem area of bringing adaptation and personalization into LMSs, including adaptation to individual goals, knowledge, learning styles and context of use as well as adaptation to group characteristics and goals and tasks of groups doing collaborative work.

On September 30 there is a whole day GRAPPLE tutorial which is given by Paul De Bra! The tutorial is called Creating and Delivering Adaptive Course Material through GRAPPLE. This tutorial is mainly aimed at educators who wish to start offering adaptive course material. The Adaptive Learning Environment GALE can be used independent of an LMS (or other GRAPPLE components) so also educators whose institute does not use a (supported) LMS can make use of GALE. The tutorial is also interesting for researchers who wish to study adaptive course delivery methods and techniques and may wish to use the GRAPPLE environment (or just GALE) as a base technology to build their own extensions on. The software is open source and very extensible.

Reserve the dates in you agenda!
