Report on Participating in the DELTA Pre-Pilot Project: Building a Reference Model for European Learning Systems.
This report describes the DELTA (Development of European Learning through Technological Advance) Pre-Pilot project, which was designed to develop a European Learning System Reference Model that would bring structure into discussions of European Learning Technology, and would function as an intermediary and consensus-identifying tool. The first section of the report provides the background on project organization and assumptions. The second section summarizes some of the activities and conclusions of the four project task forces on: (1) definition, selection, and validation; (2) standards and interoperability; (3) educational requirements; and (4) authoring and prototyping. The model is shown in the third section, represented by a cubic framework with activities, actors, and resources as the three dimensions, and descriptive terms assigned to each dimension. Applications of the model as a communication tool, as a guide to critical processes, and as a reference to critical issues are assessed in the fourth section. The final section offers an overview of the next phase of the DELTA program and suggests further elaboration of the model. Three references are listed, and a detailed overview of the terms associated with the cubic framework is appended. (MES)
