TEL Day: Questionnaire

Posted by Dawn on June 13, 2008

The TEL day presented a good opportunity to promote the Streamline project alongside PERSoNA and the Institutional Repository. Nick and I put together a shared questionnaire between these three projects, which I have now done the preliminary analysis on. This report shows the questions I asked and some basic statistics gleaned from them. Nicks findings are available here on the projects respective blogs: PERSoNA and Repository.

We had twenty respondents in total many of whom also indicated that they were willing to participate in the focus groups Meg has mentioned. Unfortunately our first attempt at organising one has been cancelled due to lack of volunteers. Meg suggested that there is a lot going at the moment academically (exam boards and final marking) and that we would be better of in a coupe of weeks.

I’m going to take these results and re-examine them alongside our previous questionnaires. I’m manly look for patterns of positive or negative attitudes and work practices towards the process around learning object creation and re-use. I will post these up in couple of weeks with a more detailed report. I’m also going to have a look at the social networking questions Nick asked in regard to our ideas about the organisation and sharing of learning objects.

Reflections from York

Posted by Janet Finlay on January 24, 2008

We have a large contingent from Streamline at the Project Startup meeting for Emerge in York. At the programme meeting this morning the e-Framework was raised as an issue for all the e-administration projects – and probably for many U&I projects. John Heap, one of our team members, produced a e-framework briefing document for the rest of us on Streamline, which we have been asked to share here. It was written for internal consumption so pulls no punches – but I haven’t edited it as perhaps it is important to express some of the genuine frustrations of trying to make sense of how to contribute.

Our conclusion is that much of what we are doing as a matter of course can contribute to the e-Framework but it would still be useful to have a clearer steer as to how to do this most effectively.
