Abstract

Prior to learning with an IMS LD Unit of Learning a run must be created, learners added, and a link to the run provided. In the context of Lifelong Learning or Open Learning Resources there may be no designated administrator available to manage access for the users who will participate in a UOL at any given time, or to provide links to the appropriate active run. In this case the user has to take responsibility for this process before they can start on the learning activities. There is therefore a need for new tools supporting the auto-management of UOLs conforming to the IMS LD specification. This paper presents a list of requirements arising from using Units of Learning in a pilot performed in the context of La Verneda School for adults in the Àgora association. We also present the first version of the tool developed according to the requirements and a summary of the results of using it in a second pilot in the same school.
