iCOPER: iCOPER - Interoperable Content for Performance in a Competency-driven Society
Systematic analysis and assessment of the implementation of existing learning technology standards/specifications in delivery of competency-driven learning content for higher education and training.
Higher education institutions and continuing education centres face a growing number of challenges in delivering competency-driven educational content with their learning services. The current lack of widely accepted standards and their adoption hinders the effective implementation of learning technologies.
Driven by a consortium of key players in the European arena ICOPER will access to a critical mass of more than 12,500 hours of integrated educational content. Based on this beneficial infrastructure the project will systematically analyze the implementation of existing specifications such as IMS RCDEO, IMS LD, SQI, and QTI. ICOPER’s underlying educational framework will guide a consensus building approach to developing Best Practices, addressing issues such as
(1) exchange of competency models and learning outcomes,
(2) collaboration around learning designs,
(3) integration of content via federated search and harvesting,
(4) reuse of instructional models and content in learning deliver environments,
(5) interoperability of item banks for assessment and evaluation.
ICOPER will provide mechanisms to ensure European-wide user involvement, cooperation, and adoption of standards within a large community to support all phases of standardization. Liaison management will condense findings into an ICOPER Reference Model which will be fed back to standards bodies and disseminated via the ICOPER Institute for Training & Consulting.
