ICOPER - Interoperable Content for Performance in a Competency-driven Society

Funding:

eContentPlus Programme, BPN, Grant 417007, EUR 4,800,000 (Leicester: EUR 153,000)

Duration:

September 2008 - February 2011

Summary:

Higher education institutions and continuing education centers face a growing number of challenges in delivering competency-driven educational content with their learning services. The current lack of widely accepted standards and their adoption hinders the effective implementation of learning technologies. Driven by a consortium of key players in the European arena ICOPER has access to a critical mass of integrated educational content. Based on this beneficial infrastructure the project systematically analyzes the implementation of existing specifications. ICOPER's underlying pedagogical framework will guide a consensus building approach to developing Best Practices. ICOPER will provide mechanisms to ensure European-wide user involvement, cooperation, and adoption of standards within a large community to support all phases of standardization.
