LAMS- the Learning Activity Management System
Facilitator: Professor James Dalziel,
Macquarie University, Australia

Bio: Professor James Dalziel is the Leader of the LAMS initiative and Director of the Macquarie E-Learning Centre Of Excellence (MELCOE) at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. James also leads projects in the areas of identity and access management (MAMS) and an advisory service for open source issues in Australian higher education (ASK-OSS).

Detail: The Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) is a new generation of e-learning technology for designing, managing and delivering online collaborative learning activities (also called "learning designs"). LAMS provides educators with an intuitive visual authoring environment for creating and sharing sequences of learning activities. These activities can include a range of individual tasks, small group work and whole class activities based on both content and collaboration. LAMS has been used in universities, further education and schools for several years, leading to a number of positive evaluations (eg, JISC and BECTA reports). LAMS is freely available as open source software.

This workshop will provide an introduction to LAMS, discuss case studies of LAMS use in universities and schools, and discuss future developments for LAMS (including the release of LAMS V2 in October, 2006). The session will include live demonstrations, and trial accounts for use after the session.
