The focus on K-12 students to acquire ‘21st Century Skills’ is increasingly impacting on teaching practice, curriculum design and delivery. However, such higher order skills have traditionally been very difficult to assess.
At the same time, new technologies offer new and innovative learning opportunities for students which can help promote higher order skills e.g. Social, Informal, Non-Formal, Adaptive and Gamification.
This project will address the problem of ‘assessment’ for 21st Century Skills where technology can be/is being used to promote learning innovation. Click here to download pdf 120k Business Competence Analytics
Current practice in corporate training analytics has been based on monitoring the behaviour of learners across various learning platforms. However, this type of monitoring has been challenging for organisations for a number of reasons.
These include the multitude and diversity of learning platforms, and the measurement of statistical behaviours that don’t translate into actionable metrics. Interoperability issues aside, diversity in platforms can mean diversity in analytics. Moreover, monitoring statistical measures such as clicks per page or quiz completion rate has not necessarily mapped back to useful business competence analytics.
Thus, there is a need for technology which will consider type of competencies such as critical thinking or task-specific skills and deliver a mapping of such competencies to actionable analytics. Click here to download pdf 120k ELMM (Enterprise Learning Maturity Model)
Adoption and embedding of learning technology in organisations represents a significant investment. However there exists currently no clearly understood framework for evolution in the adoption of learning technologies. This means it is very difficult for organisations using learning technology to see the benefits of evolving to ever more sophisticated and effective levels of learning practice within the organisation.
This project will address the challenge of identifying different stages in the embedding of best practice in learning technology adoption as well as enumeration of the business benefits of that adoption. The framework will identify aspects of maturity of learning technology adoption such as stages, practices, technology choices, business benefits and levels of integration within business practices/processes.

The first objective is to develop an approach to ease selection and application of existing Learnovate components for adoption by Industry partners. This ‘IP Packaging’ research will focus on developing standards for highly usable APIs that will be applied through example packaging for existing content reuse components. The packaging of non-service-based IP such as UI/UX innovation, visualisation, and instructional design, will also be considered.
A further objective of this project is to conduct an internal review of previous Learnovate projects that have applied content reuse technology. This review will ascertain both the current capabilities of the technologies as well as identifying the current challenges in reusing existing (legacy) content. The first 3 months of this project will be used to establish the criteria for effective API design and deployment, as well as identifying opportunities and gaps in Learnovate’s content reuse offerings.
