Digivisio’s new digital service, the working title of which is the continuous and flexible learning tray, has an agile development process implemented in stages with technical release components. The contents and functionalities of the service will develop with each release component.
The co-development of the tray’s technical release component 1.0 is currently in its final stages, and the pilot institutions have tested the service version 1.0 in a test environment in April–May. Product development of the technical release component 2.0 started in April. The 2.0 pilot institutions have participated in co-development, for example, by testing the online learning quality criteria and examining the structure of the open education offered on the tray, especially from the perspective of its administration and publication.
Pilot 2.0 has two focus areas:
- Tray development: Educational offering: open university of applied sciences and university studies; jointly produced modules
- bringing open university of applied sciences and university studies to the tray
- processing integration registrations from Peppi and Sisu systems and using the identification relay service
- building a jointly produced education and training provision
- Internal development of higher education institutions: Production of digitally supported courses on offer
- support for pedagogy and development of new ways of producing educational offering
- identifying new forms of competence verification
- applying common rules to education and training brought to the tray
The piloting of the technical release component 2.0 will be implemented at JAMK University of Applied Sciences, Turku University of Applied Sciences, FiTech network universities (Aalto University, University of Eastern Finland, University of Jyväskylä, LUT University, University of Oulu, Tampere University, University of Turku, University of Vaasa and Åbo Akademi University), and the Lapland University Consortium LUC. The first pilot network meetings were organised in April.
“The pilot institutions have, from the very start, conveyed their willingness to together develop solutions that benefit the entire field of higher education. Co-development offers a forum for exchanging ideas and identifying concrete shared goals,” explains Eeva Tuori-Pastila, Project Manager for piloting.
Higher education institutions can follow the piloting through the pilot monitoring group. View the pilot monitoring group meetings in the project’s Eduuni wiki (registration required).
