Jacques Raynauld sharing work on Open Syllabus/Syllabus capabilities in Sakai 3:
Different view of Syllabus when it is integrated into course website
Who are the actors/users/roles of a Syllabus
Explore all of the parts that are of interest:
Description of the course - basic information that should be available to different users/contexts
Evaluation Section -
Impact on the design
Sakai 3 work: How does Open Syllabus translate?
- Page Templates?
- Other concepts?
Structured vs. Unstructured Syllabus
- interest in less restrictive, free-form syllabus
- Open Syllabus (OP) structured, address need of instructors for guided
- not necessarily templating.
- The content/information on the page are discrete pieces of data (semantic) that can be used/re-used in different contexts and other workflows.
- seeks to preserve
- Can these co-exist?
To what extent should a syllabus drive the composition of learning objectives (or encourage such objectives, or require them?) and how?
Jacques: Engineering wants to push learning objectives to course syllabi. Tagging not adequate for that.
Daphne: For one thing, tagging requires a shared vocabulary understood by users. Maybe a hybrid, with some pre-defined semantics, would work.
