Introductions


Vision of a modern, integrated and extensible learning environment.



Develop a software integration framework and populate it with a set of best
-
of
-
breed products that
meet user demands and are designed to interoperate.


Recognise that different customers may require different elements for the same function to meet
local needs.


Acknowledge that new elements will be needed over time while others will reduce in value, so allow
for the integration of new elements.


Prepare for Innovation in education and Technology, and be able to integrate at an affordable price
point.



Editure has synthesised such a framework based on its own experience and best practice thinking to
refine a Service Oriented Architecture for Education Authorities and Schools.

Access Reporting


Allocate users to
roles



Users can be grouped together into ‘Groups’ (Year 11, Year 12 etc) and can be assigned ‘Roles’
that allow them different privileges within the system.


Our system caters to a number of key user groups/roles, with more as needed in future.


Key Concepts
-

Users


A community is a common space where users can share
information, communicate and collaborate to create learning.


Typically a community is administered by a teacher with students as
participants, but a community could also be for teachers
Professional Development, or even a school fete.


Communities can be compulsory (Math 2B), or voluntary (Chess
Club). Students are able to browse a list of voluntary communities.


Administrators can invite other users or groups, and can even
deputize trusted users to perform a subset of admin tasks


For convenience, communities can be grouped into categories
(Classes, Extra curricula etc)


Communities can be customised, having their own sub
-
pages, tools
(portlets) and themes.


Teachers can develop pages ahead of time, and have the new
pages display after a trigger event (such as a date/time)

Key Concepts


Communities /cont.


Our system comes with over 50 portlets out of the box. Typically, these break down in to one of four
categories:

-

General Portal Portlets (e.g.. email, calendar, search)

-

Learning Portlets (e.g. Assessment, Resource Creation)

-

Collaborative Portlets (e.g. Blogs, wikis)

-

Admin Portlets (e.g. Portal config, reports)


Permissions can be given to portlets to control how they are used by differently types of users


Our portlets are JSR 286 and JSR 182 compliant for interoperability and to allow new portlets to be
added over time. Editure can also build custom portlets to respond to specific customer needs.






Portlets and Tools


As with most things in life, there are tradeoffs between well structured technology environments and
more open user defined systems, but the good news is that our platform allows a great degree of
flexibility for how learning authorities and schools are set up. Policies can be set at a learning
authority level or defined at the higher level and then refined down at school, class, group, or user
levels.


It is possible to fully configure the class structures, user roles, groups to suit the existing structure,
and control to an atomic level who can access information and system function.


It is further possible to allow teachers and communities to share information across schools and
communities, and when authorised, to invite others to join their learning group.


We can set things up so only a few critical portlets and simple themes are available, and turn more
complicated tools on as the teachers and students become more comfortable with how the system
works.


Our new system has a migration path from MySuite, and other learning environments, such as our
early learning product that we sell in conjunction with UK based DB Learning.


Our authentication and Indentity components makes it easier to
