Blended Learning
Posted on Jul 01 2009 12:48  / Learning

Blended learning is a continuous process, rather than just a "learning event." Providing blended solutions allows for flexibility, not only of multiple delivery methods, but for learning to take place over time.

For instance, the timeline below shows how Web-based modules can offer "pre-work" preceding a classroom training event. Online peer communities or e-mentoring can extend well past the live event, along with Web resource availability for learners.

From Andy Powell

Andy Powell JISC as a set of services

The following sections list the abstract services that are likely to be offered by the service components shown in the JISC IE diagram above, describe each of those abstract services, and finally list the specific 'service bindings' associated with those abstract services (corresponding to the standards and protocols listed in the JISC IE Standards Framework).

In this context, an abstract service is:
An identifiable portion of a business process. An abstract service includes a description of its functional scope, and an abstract model of its behavior and data.
And a service binding is:
A specific instantiation of an abstract service. A service binding elaborates on an abstract service by providing all of the following which are applicable:
  1. a specific data representation;
  2. an Application Programming Interface (API) specification; and
  3. a Web service specification.

6.1 Mapping JISC IE service components to abstract services

This section lists the abstract services that are likely to be offered by each of the service components shown on the JISC IE diagram above (plus one or two others).

Content provider / repository

Stores, manages and makes available content, metadata and/or news channels.

  • Search interface
  • Harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Deposit interface
  • Delete interface
  • Obtain interface


Passes search requests on to one or more remote search interfaces (typically those offered by content providers / repositories) in parallel, combines the results and returns them to the requester.

  • Search interface


Gathers metadata records from one or more remote harvest interfaces or news channels (typically those offered by content providers / repositories) and offers them for searching or harvesting by others or as an aggregated news channel.

  • Harvest interface
  • Search interface
  • News channel


Stores, manages and makes available metadata records (typically human-generated) about content held elsewhere.

  • Harvest interface
  • Search interface
  • News channel
  • Metadata deposit interface
  • Delete interface


Uses Web robots or other techniques to gather content held elsewhere and indexes it for searching by others.

  • Search interface


Provides a personalised, single point of access to a range of heterogeneous network services, local and remote, structured and unstructured. Portal functionality often includes resource discovery, email access and online discussion fora. Portals are intended for (human) end-users using common Web 'standards' such as HTTP, HTML, Java and JavaScript.

  • None


A Virtual Learning Environment. (Also known as a Learning Management System.) Offers a range of functionality that supports teachers, lecturers, tutors and learnings in their teaching and learning activities.

  • None (though VLE with integrated learning object repository may offer the

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 97)

content provider services above)

Authentication/authorisation (Athens)

An authentication service component determines whether the real-world individual who has the rights to use it is using the digital ID being presented to a network service. This is often achieved through the use of a username/password combination or a digital certificate, depending on the degree of assurance required. An authorisation service component indicates whether a particular real-world individual has the necessary access-rights to access a particular resource.

  • Authentication service

Authorisation service

This functionality is combined in the Athens service, but this is not the case in other systems such as Shibboleth.

Collection registry

Stores, manages and makes available descriptions of collections (i.e. the collections of content being made available by content providers / repositories).

  • Collection description search interface
  • Collection description harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Collection description deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Service registry

Stores, manages and makes available descriptions of the services being offered on the network by other service components.

  • Service description search interface
  • Service description harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Service description deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Note that the JISC IESR shared 'service registry' service component currently combines Collection Registry and Service Registry functionality into a single service component known as the IESR.

Metadata schema registry

Stores, manages and makes available descriptions of the metadata schemas in use by other service components. Typically some combination of metadata semantics and syntax will be described.

  • Metadata schema search interface
  • Metadata schema harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Metadata schema deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Identifier service component

Stores, manages and resolves identifiers.

  • Identifier resolver
  • Identifier search interface
  • Identifier harvest interface
  • Identifier deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Institutional profiling service component

Stores, manages and makes available institutional profiles (descriptions institutional preferences such as their preferred e-journal suppliers, licensing agreements in place, etc.).

  • Institutional profile search interface
  • Institutional profile harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Institutional profile deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Terminology service component

Stores, manages and makes available vocabularies (ontologies, classification schemes, thesauri and/or other controlled vocabularies) and provides terminology- related services, such as mapping a term from one controlled vocabulary to another or expanding terms within a thesaurus.

  • Vocabulary search interface
  • Vocabulary harvest interface
  • News channel
  • Vocabulary deposit interface
  • Delete interface
  • Terminology service

Ratings and annotation service component

Stores, manages and makes available user-supplied ratings and annotations about content held elsewhere.

  • Ratings search interface
  • Ratings harvest interface
  • Ratings deposit interface
  • Ratings delete interface
  • Annotations search interface
  • Annotations harvest interface
  • Annotations deposit interface
  • Delete interface

User preferences service component

Stores, manages and makes available user preferences (typically for the purposes of personalising other service components).

  • User preferences search interface
  • User preferences harvest interface
  • User preferences deposit interface
  • Delete interface

Note that for data protection and other operational reasons, a user preferences service component is unlikely to be a suitable candidate for a 'shared service' and is more likely to be offered within the confines of a single institution.

Terms and conditions service component

Provides information about the terms and conditions associated with a resource.

  • Licence search interface
  • Licence harvest interface
  • Licence deposit interface
  • Delete interface

As noted above, this list of services is not exhaustive. There will be a wide range of other service developed and offered on the network, either globally, as national shared services or within specific institutions. Examples include automatic document classification and metadata generation services, packaging and unpackaging services, format conversion services, validation services, reading list services, bookmarking services, etc., etc.

Beyond Search towards Learning

Cyber infrastructure



  • The Basic Layer implements a set of resource handlers.
  • Each resource handler is responsible for handling of a specific type of a resource. Each resource handler service implements the four basic operations create, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD). Additionally, filter methods and task-oriented methods (e.g., for changing the status of an object within a content repository) are provided.
  • The most important resources are Items, Containers, and Contexts.

Items are basic objects that represent content entities within the repository, e.g. articles, images, or videos.

Containers are aggregation objects that allow for arbitrary grouping of items and other containers. Whereas the general layout of Item and Container resources remains the same, they can be further specialized by content types. Content types impose constraints on objects (e.g. allowed metadata schemas, required metadata, allowed file types and mime types for the binary content and specify a set of content type specific properties).

Contexts represent units of administration for a set of Items and Containers. They are associated with an institutional body responsible for the management of the content.

Areas of Importance in the Coming Years

Hot Academic Jobs of the Future: Try These Fields


At a time when the academic job market is looking bleak, we asked career experts and economic forecasters to predict where faculty job growth could come in the next decade. Many agreed that job prospects will be dim because of budget cuts and diminishing faculty pension funds that have made professors less likely to retire. In addition, the growing use of graduate students and adjuncts to teach classes means fewer jobs are available that are secure or financially rewarding.

If the past is any indication, it is difficult to make predictions about the faculty job market. Predictions in the late 1980s of a huge faculty shortage caused by retirements failed to come true. Still, the data suggest that large numbers of academic teaching jobs will open up in the future. Some are expected to be created by enrollment growth; others by the need to replace faculty members hired in the late 1960s and 70s to teach baby boomers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected that 662,000 faculty jobs will become available from 2006 to 2016 382,000 new slots, and 280,000 current jobs expected to open up. Community colleges and other institutions that offer career and technical education are expected to offer many of the new job opportunities.

The following list is not a bible, and it's certainly not scientific. But here are some of the academic fields our experts believe will be "hot" over the coming decade:

Green chemistry

Green chemistry focuses on eliminating the use of toxic chemicals in chemistry without stifling scientific progress. Paul T. Anastas, a Yale University chemist, founded the field in 1991. As it grows in importance, more institutions are expected to offer master's degrees and doctorates. Among the universities with green-chemistry programs are Carnegie Mellon and Yale Universities and the Universities of Oregon, Scranton, and Massachusetts at Lowell.

Terry Collins, a chemistry professor at Carnegie Mellon who heads the university's Institute for Green Science, thinks the intellectual rationale for the field is strong. "It hasn't gotten a lot of federal support, but I think that's going to change," he says. One reason: Mr. Anastas has been nominated by President Obama to head the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development.


Threats to human society by the consumption of limited resources have sparked a race to find alternative energy sources that are sustainable, efficient, and safe for the environment. Among the leaders in this research mission is the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California at Berkeley. The interdisciplinary group has been devising technical and policy alternatives to unsustainable energy and resource use for the past 30 years.

The Energy Efficiency Center at the University of California at Davis identifies promising energy-efficient technologies and develops viable business ventures around them. Established in 2006 with a challenge grant from the state, the center focuses on transferring technology from academe to the marketplace.

Boston University's Center for Energy and Environmental Studies, meanwhile, specializes in the fields of energy and environmental analysis.


Not only are professors aging everybody else is, too. The aging process will take on a more prominent role in society as the baby-boom generation ages, making studies like gerontology a growth area, says Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

The oldest and largest school of gerontology in the world is the Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California. It has conducted research in molecular biology, neuroscience, dem-ography, psychology, sociology, and public policy on aging since 1975.

The Universities of Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland at Baltimore, and Massachusetts at Boston are among those offering doctoral programs in the field.


The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the number of postsecondary educational administrators will increase by 14 percent from 2006 to 2016.

"The leadership turnover in education is going to be tremendous in the coming years," said Mark David Milliron, president and chief executive of Catalyze Learning International, an education-consulting group in Newland, N.C. "Folks are scrambling to fill the C-level pipeline; as a result, Ph.D.'s and Ed.D.'s are in high demand, and will be for some time."


A nanometer, one billionth of a meter, is about 10,000 times narrower than a human hair. Nanotechnology is the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. It has the potential to create materials and devices in fields as diverse as electronics, energy production, and medicine.

Among institutions that offer programs in the growing field are the Universities of Washington and North Carolina at Charlotte; the State University of New York at Albany; and Arizona State, Louisiana Tech, Pennsylvania State, and Rice Universities.

Health policy

Just as gerontology will become more important as the population ages, health-related fields and health-care policy will remain vital in coming years. Some of the influential universities for health policy and management are Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and New York Universities.

Information technology

Harry Lewis, a Harvard professor of computer science and one of the authors of Blown to Bits: Your Life, Liberty and Happiness After the Digital Explosion (Addison-Wesley, 2008), believes information technology will remain a growth area in the coming years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics agrees, projecting that among selected occupations requiring a doctoral degree, computer and information science will have one of the largest growth rates 22 percent from 2006 to 2016.

Some of the better-known programs in information technology are those offered by the University of California at Berkeley, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stanford University.


There always seems to be a high demand for engineers of one kind or another, and the next decade should be no exception. Engineering comprises such a broad array of studies and competencies that it can lead to vastly different careers. In especially promising fields, the Bureau of Labor Statistics sees environmental engineering experiencing 25-percent growth between 2006 and 2016, and industrial and biomedical engineering each experiencing about 20-percent growth in that time.

An Example of How Applications and Repositories Work Together


Build Your Apps First!

You need to build your apps first. These are what satisfies the needs of your patrons. These apps need to be pretty smart though. They have to provide:

  • OAI-PMH (Dublin Core)
  • ATOM
  • RDF
  • and always more


Repositories come afterward and are behind the scenes. They provide:

  • Search across applications
  • Preservation
  • Mashup Data from multiple applications
  • Content for new applications

Storage Solutions

Someday we may have to start thinking about that but not now.

Service Oriented Architecture

This really doesn't have a service orientation but rather a ''multiple'' application focus.
