The OU will change this VLE and MyStuff in July 2011.
Having blogged about implied and/or necessary improvements to some of the key tools it amused me to read that the OU are doing exactly this.
I embrace change so can't wait. I'll have another year to go of the MA.
A job ad in the Guardian for a couple of Project Managers to handle/manage 'business change' at the Open University.
'Would you enjoy leading on the development of new ways of working with Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) software, content management systems and eLearning projects?'
Curiouser, and curiouser.
I trust a way to transfer assets out of MyStuff will be produced.
Is it an in-house job, or has Cisco Systems, Google or Facebook come in?
We'll have to wait and see, though for someone fascinated by e-learning it will be interesting to observe as it occurs.
Perhaps the two roles could be roled into a number of collaborative exercises in H807 'Innovations in e-Learning,' with contributions from H808 'The elearning Professional' not forgetting H810 and the importance, particularly for the OU to be the King of Accessibility.
