Participation to MOOC and a conference on Open Educational Ressources.
Le professeur Gilbert Paquette est invité sur plusieurs tribunes pour parler des relations entre les ressources éducatives libre (REL/OER) et les cours en ligne ouverts massivement (CLOM/MOOC). Ainsi, l'Université de Moncton prépare un CLOM sur le sujet des ressources éducatives libres avec l'appui de l'OIF, lequel sera offert à partir du mois de mars 2014. Gilbert Paquette a accepté de prendre en charge la deuxième semaine de ce cours. Voici le résumé de sa présentation que l'on peut consulter sur Slideshare à http://fr.slideshare.net/GilbertPaquette/cours-rel
"Les ressources éducatives (ou objets d'apprentissage) libres constituent un mouvement international de fond. Une décade de développement, du MIT "Open Consortium" jusqu'au MOOC (Massive Online Open Course ou CLOM - Cours en ligne ouvert et massif), révèle un potentiel important pour la qualité de l'éducation. Les participants découvriront aussi l’expérience québécoise en la matière, l’évolution des concepts et le tableau actuel en ce qui a trait aux REL. Ils seront appelés à s’approprier cette information pour compléter le tableau d'ensemble proposé et mettre en lumière les principaux enjeux des REL pour la Francophonie".
Par ailleurs, Gilbert Paquette sera en Tunisie du 8 au 12 février 2014 pour présenter une conférence pleinière dans le cadre du colloque de l'Association e-Omed – Espace ouvert pour la Méditerranée qui regroupe une quarantaine d'université d'Europe et d'Afrique du Nord. La conférence s'intitule: "Des ressources éducatives libres aux MOOC – Impacts sur l’ingénierie pédagogique. Après avoir résumé une décade d'évolution dans ce domaine, il y souligne que "la réutilisation des ressources éducative demande, non seulement de les choisir avec soin, mais surtout de les adapter et de les recontextualiser en tenant compte des caractéristiques des publics cibles, de l’écart de compétences à combler, et du contexte socio-culturel de leur utilisation. Cette étape cruciale mobilise un processus central : l’ingénierie pédagogique".
Three invited conferences in Europe (December 2012)
The first conference has been given on Decembre 2nd in Faro, Protugal, for the 4th edition of the international conference "Next Generation Networks & Services (NGNS 2012) . Professor Paquette has presented the opening confeence entitled "Semantically-aware Networks and Services for Training and Knowledge Management in Organizations". It summerizes part of the research results from the PRIOWS project that has ended in septembre 2012, at the LICEF research Center.
The second conference was given on December 11 in Lyon at the opening of TICE'2012, the main French conference on IC Technologies in Education. The conference was entitled: "Référencement sémantique par compétences pour la recherche et l'assistance dans les environnement d'apprentissage et de travail. Here is the abstract: "The main results of the research program on ontological engineering and the Semantic Web will be presented. PRIOWS is the three year program that has ended in September 2012. It wa composed of an innovation project in technical information management using ontologies at Hydro-Québec, and four research projects on knowledge and work scenario modeling, ontology desing and management, semantic resource referencing and search, and competency-based assistance to users. A software conceptual framework integrating the various components will be presented as well as an implementation of a system for the design and delivery of learning or work support Web-based environments."
This conference was preceded, on December 10, by a seminar at LIRIS, the CNRS laboratory on image processing and information systems that groups professors and researchers of four university and superior schools in the Lyon region. Professor Paquette has presented a synthesis of the work at the LICEF research Center and the CICE research Chair on knowledge and competency modeling. The structural and operational definition of competencies have been exposed, together with their integration to the Semantic Web as a mean to reference users, resources and activity scenarios for learning and knowledge management. Contrary to natural language statements, such competencies can be compared to offer assistance to users of multi-actor scenarios. A competency comparison method will be presented, based on the structure of an OWL-DL ontology and a competency profile built on such ontologies. It enables various forms of assistance. The peresentation has resumed by a discussion with the participants on a number of research questions.
New France-Québec collaboration (September 2012)
Gilbert Paquette returns from a trip to France and Germany where he has met many colleagues working on the Web of data, the emerging part of the Semantic Web on which the BRER project is being developed at the CICE research chair. He has also met with representatives of the French "Ministère de l'enseignement supérieur et de la recherche". An agreement has been written to foster the collaboration between TELUQ and the "Universités numériques thématiques (UNT)" sustained by the French Government. More thant 23 000 resources from the UNTs will soon become accessible through linked open data (LOD). The "Organisation internationale de la francophonie (OIF)" is also moving towards Open Educational Resources (OER). It will organize in January 2013 an orientation workshop to which the CICE director has been invited to present his results and orientation proposals for the next OIF program.
Gilbert Paquette has also participated to the EC-TEL 2012 european conference on learning technologies at Saarbrüecken, Germany. He has presented the most recent research achieved at the LICEF research center with colleagues Délia Rogozan and Olga Marino. It is an extension of the TELOS system by which scenario actors, activities and resources are described by ontology components and competency profile elements. Such descriptions enable the system to update user models and provide on-line assistance according to the state of this model. The originality of this work lies in a new competency comparison method.
REFRER, a new project directed by Gilbert Paquette, is one of the 9 projects in a list of 93 financed by the Fonds francophone des inforoutes (FFI) in its 2012 call for proposals.
REFRER is an initative of the CICE research Chair (LICEF-TELUQ), in collaboration with partners from Quebec (VTÉ), France (UNIT), Tunisia (UVT) and Morocco (3 Engineering schools). It extends the BRER project, aiming the creation of a francophone space to share College and University learning resources. The grant from FFI totals 182 000 $CAN. The project has a 20 months timeframe, starting in Fall 2012.
The results of the PRIOWS project have been pressented at the IC-2012 conference in Montréal.
This year, the PRIOWS conference, has been paired with the Informatique Cognitive 2012 conference. On June 6 and 7 2012, the scientific program of IC2012 has featured all the components of PRIOWS, where researchers, professionals and graduate students have presented their results. Gilbert Paquette has operend these presentations with a synthesis of PRIOWS. Two of the presentations are also available on this site in the section "Conferences".
A new project on learning scenarios, financed by GTN-Québec, has completed its first phase.
A first phase of the GTN-Québec 12.8, Learning Scenarios has ended on May 31th 2012 by the presentation of a first phase report. In this first phase, the project has examined all forms of learning scenarios from K-12 to Université in Quebec institutions, and methods used for scenario referencing in Web portals or resource repositories. In the next phases, based on Quebec practice and international standards, a learning design model will be proposed, together with a metadata referencing process. The ultimate goal is to define an application profile for learning scenarios withing the ISO-MLR standard.
BRER - A new project financed by the Ministry of Education on Learning Object Repositories
Professor Gilbert Paquette has received in September 2010 a grant 492 000 $ for the next three years from the Ministry of Education of Quebec. The BRER project will be realized with the collaboration of the Bois-de-Boulogne College and also with the French Virtual Universities that use the ORI-OAI software for managing their Learning Object repositories. The BRER project aims in particular to give access to a critical mass of Learning resources in French and other languages to colleges and universities, providing a personalized resource harvesting service and combining the best components of the PALOMA, EURÊKA and ORI-OAI resource management systems.

IMS-LD resource center
The IDLD web site developed by the CICE team with is now in operation at www.idld.org. Designed as a LD resource center, the site contains a set of IMS-LD-compliant learning and teaching scenarios, a methodological guide, a set of tools and some related documents to support the reuse of learning designs and training activities to IMS-LD. The IDLD project is dedicated to the dissemination of the basic concepts of educational modeling and the IMS-LD Learning Design specification.
CONCEPT@, a New Development
The Explor@ plateform development team has been involved in the design and construction of the new design portal of Télé-université. The CONCEPT@ portal integrates a new version of the PALOM@ learning object manager linked to a course structure editor. Both of these central components have been extracted from Explor@ so they can be aggregated using Web services with other on-line learning environments. Other Explor@ components will migrate in a short future to CONCEPT@ and also towards TELOS, the TELelearning Operating System that is developed by the LORNET research network.
PALOM@ is spreading in Québec
PALOM@, an off-spring of the Explor@ learning object manager is being deployed in many Quebec universities and in the pan-Canadian LORNET network of learning object repositories. This system has been retained by a network of universities as its repository manager after evaluation of a group of alternative products. Unlike most learning object repositories, PALOM@ enables search within one repository, many repositories within PALOM@ or through a federated search in repositories in other provinces or countries. Each repository and each object can be given different access rights so that repository administrators can decide if the metadata and the resources are freely accessible or restrained to a set of cooperating organisation or to a private group.
Simon Fraser University was this year the host of the second LORNET annual conference I 2LOR-2005 : E-Learning Frameworks for the Future : From Content to Services.
