EUROGENE: EUROGENE: the first pan-European learning service in the field of genetics

The First Pan-European Learning Service in the Field of Genetics

Authoring of educational content gradually shifts from a traditional approach (lectures with text books) to a more complex blended learning approach, in which publishers, lecturers and students play a complementary role. At the same time, specific domains such as human genetics have become “fast moving educational domains” due to continuous breakthrough research and innovation. Coherent supportive services and frameworks are lacking to support authors in their task of continuous development and updating of high quality educational packages with limited resources.
The EUROGENE’s project objective is to migrate towards more efficient development of higher quality (multimedia) didactic material on genetics through the guided editing and “assembly” of educational packages based on the IMS learning design metadata framework and the sharing of different types of “learning objects” between content owners, in 9 languages.
The project will identify and bring together owners of complementary types of top quality digital educational content, enhance their existing content with domain ontology based metadata using state of the art annotation tools, develop and implement a shared quality control procedure for both pedagogic and scientific peer-review and tailor an advanced multilingual content search and editing tool to help content developers in constructing pedagogically sound educational packages.
Final aim is to establish the European reference portal for genetics that enables authors to develop multimedia educational content better, faster and with lesser resources.
