Widget Technologies

Learning technology comes in various forms. Some tools work as standalone applications, others are embedded into a more complex web application, often a kind of learning management system (LMS) or content management system (CMS). To encapsulate the logical user interface units, i.e. dialogue-sized visual appearances with a particular, use-case sized behaviour, and to enable them for direct reuse across several systems, the use of widgets is recommended.

Within LTfLL, several new learning tools have been constructed -- and are available as widgets. Furthermore, we have supported the 'elgg' project and created an interface to the widget back-end 'Wookie', which we have supported with functionality for interwidget communication. With this infrastructure, creating a flexible personal learning environment becomes easy and recombining the building blocks into new environments becomes possible.
