2. About CAPDMCAPDM helps education providers develop global businessesin education. This means: Programme and product design Single source publishing and knowledge management Delivery worldwide in all media and any VLE.It is both a company and a model for standards basedprogramme development. See www.capdm.com.It applies equally across the entire flexible learning spectrum: The spectrum of flexible learning study modes available to educators CETIS 2008 2 3. Concept guidance: The CAPDM Model CETIS 2008 3 4. Single Source Content captured into XML/Docbook Study guides Course books Work books Assessments, past exams Glossaries Capture from Word or authored directly in an XML aware editor CETIS 20084 5. Why XML? Semantic markup rather than stylistic markup Independent of tools and VLEs Tools can generate multiple output formats from the same XML master Smarter indexing/cross-linking Semantic Web Future proof! CETIS 2008 5 6. Semantic mark-up in XML CETIS 2008 6 7. Single mastering: capture into XML Before: MS Word fileAfter: XML fileMS Word module with table; resulting XML file and table.Capture 100 MS Word pages into XML in < 30 seconds.Average 80% capture accuracy, 20% manual correction (equations;figs) CETIS 2008 7 8. Key conclusions from this model Quality learning materials are assets. Good ones take significant effort and resources to produce. Secure your investment in them. Investing in standards (XML, JPEG ) is cost effective, helps to prevent legacy problems, ensures long-term reusability, and allows greater vendor independence. A good way to produce quality learning materials at reasonable cost, is to share the production process where all involved can apply their strengths. It is more efficient to produce learning materials using a single source publishing solution. 40-60% cheaper overall. A good way to deliver best practice learning designs and environments is to work with a partner that does a lot of this.CETIS 20088 9. Change Management Master XML documents kept in a repository Changes tracked through versioning of the documents check out, edit, check in actual release versions tagged Co-ordination of changes across languages CETIS 20089 10. Localisation Same content apart from small chunks of localised text (e.g. using an Australian news clipping rather than a British one in a journalism course) Different language versions of the same text CETIS 200810 11. Localisation Case Study Pilot for Thomson Education Direct A vision of a global product development engine avoiding content duplication, but allowlocalisation supports constant updates A publishing engine that allows for paper, cd, web enabled, multi-language CETIS 2008 11 12. Language case study Materials mastered in English A release is then sent to translators for Spanish, Chinese, Arabic translation Meanwhile the English version is updated Custom outputs for sending to translatorsCETIS 2008 12 13.

Multiple outputs from one master: AU and UK English PDFAustralian English PDF UK English PDF61 pages, batch typeset from one master source in seconds.Variable content elements output based on locale (AU, EN, NL). CETIS 200817 18. Multiple outputs: Dutch PDF PDF product batch generated from Dutch XML master. CETIS 2008 18 19. Multiple outputs: HTML versions from same mastersEnglish ICS HTMLDutch NTI HTML Two 3500 HTML file trees generated from single master in < 1 minute Locale specific; custom navigation elements; metadata rich.CETIS 200819 20.

CETIS 2008 24 25. Learning objective feedback Provide additional learning feedback online, to make best use of the medium.CETIS 2008 25 26. Four core support needs Programme production The design, production and delivery of blended learning,assessment and CPD products. Single source publishing services and tools. Materials and knowledge management Ongoing content management and updating support thatcaters for all media in a holistic, single source solution.

Share programme developmentShared development process lets each partner applying their strengthsCETIS 200827 28. Supporting different learning styles Learning can be Individual, Cooperative or Collaborative. Individual learning provides much individual flexibility, but little learning community. Cooperative learning provides much individual flexibility and access to a learning community. Collaborative learning required participation in a learning community, but limits individual flexibility.

CAPDM Model in the Managed Learning Environment Integrated production, delivery and administration components make for a Managed Learning Environment, better quality, and more efficient operations JISC derived diagram illustrating 3CETIS 2008 38 39. Key benefits #1: Better quality programmes The design and delivery can be custom for each programmes learning environment, and not constrained by any one product design. Personalised experiences for tutors, students and administrators are more easily implemented. Service components can be reused in other conexts. New service components can be integrated into the same environment more consistently.CETIS 2008 39 40. Key benefit #2: No VLE or vendor lock-in Open standards based learning content held outside your virtual learning environment as single master sources. Flexible web service components to fit into your portal and provide a cost-effective learning environment solution. Operational access to all data and source codes. Example Europes largest on-line MBA programme at EBS is now being delivered from its third VLE system (two have been custom built; one was proprietary). 20 million words of course materials in 4 languages; 8,000 diagrams and sundry other media objects ported, and a 12 year record of co-ordinated update management was maintained.
