On Floe, we've been working on a concept design to act as a straw man and
artifact for thinking around.
Framing Floe as a project that approaches inclusive open education resources
from a learner role and an educator/producer role allows us to articulate
the following goals:
On the learner's side, we want to connect users to appropriate resources.
Learners should be able to express a learning need/desire, and the system
should then: 1) find resources matching that expression, 2) transform
existing resources to match that expression, or 3) create a demand for such
On the educator's side, we want to enable OER producers to be able to create
transformable content through the use of authoring tools/toolkits/utilities
that naturally afford the production of inclusive content. (Side note: we
also want to explore the idea of crowd sourcing to transform existing
resources into other modes)
I've put together a mindmap of ideas and considerations for envisioning the
Floe design concept. It can be found here:
Over the next while, I'll be taking this soup of ideas and manifesting them
into some sketches and wireframes.
Thoughts, questions, and feedback are always appreciated, :)
