RUSSEL is an open source “out-of-the-box” repository (or “digital library”). RUSSEL uses the open source version of Alfresco™ as the back end. RUSSEL includes support for SCORM, user ratings, and a tool for repurposing existing content.
This tool allows users to search for and add existing content to an instructional design template and to annotate it with instructions for programmers. It supports instructional design best practices and encourages reuse of content. See http://www.adlnet.gov/tla/russel for more information.
Eduworks* is developing tools that generate expert models for use in intelligent tutoring systems. TRADEM is a Phase II SBIR project sponsored by the Army Research Lab.
ASPOA auto-generates outcomes-aligned assessment questions for any digital content.
Eduworks* is developing mobile technology that detects the “teachable moment” based on user actions and sensor data and recommends appropriate learning experiences. PULSAR is part of the U.S. Advanced Distributed Learning initiative’s Personal Assistant for Learning program.
