A summary of the Tools Integration Project funded by the distributed e-learning strand.

Please describe the tool you are building

This project is focused on integrating the learning design system called LAMS, the AMS (‘TOIA’) assessment tool and the Bodington virtual learning environment. All this tools will be free to the UK educational sector (LAMS and Bodington will be open source).

Once integrated these tools will provide a diverse set of e-learning functionality that will enable teachers and learners to engage in a wide range of learning practices.

What problem do you see the development of this tool helping to address?

This project is focused on putting a wide range of e-learning tools within a simple and coherent platform.

Who do you see the being the primary user(s) of this tool?

The TIP project is implementing a diverse set of tools that can be used by both teachers and learners.

How do you see your tool being used?

In schools the integrated suite of tools will be useful in planning and managing lessons.

In higher education the tool suite will probably best support distance learning and in helping students collaborate more effectively. Academics may also use the tool suite to augment their existing lecture and practical modules.

To use your tool, what infrastructure etc (if any) will be needed? (ie - could it be used stand-alone? Would it need a VLE/other system to be in place?)

Each of the tools is a web application that can be hosted remotely and used by large institutions.
