WP1: Management

2014 deadlines


  • task: comments on the case study format --> by 14/04
  • task: written case study (compulsory) + video (reccomended) --> by 20/09
  • task: contribution to the 3rd Year Innovation report --> by 15/11


  • task: All partners to add SENNET metadata to existing LRE resources (in Database II): Deadline May 1st 2014
  • We do not re-open Database I for registration of new national titles as the transfer to the LRE is rather labour intensive. If you have one or two items that you think are absolutely essential to add to the LRE, please consult Elena and she may do them manually...
  • National contributions to D3.3 - Learning Resources for SEN in the LRE. Deadline 1 May 2014. Few statements about what you have done nationally. Please check what you wrote in the proposal - think I have captured this in the circulated D3.3 draft.
  • Last but not least - please suggest a few best titles (i.e. dedicated resources for SEN students where our tagging is particularly important). For the report, for demo purposes - and for use.


  • task: comments to the quality assurance tools and procedure --> by 14/04
  • fill in the 2nd cycle quality assurance questionnaires --> by 25/5
  • fill in the 3rd cycle quality assurance questionnaires --> by 25/10

WP2: Research and analysis

This wiki is for ongoing information and discussions on topics.

Mobile learning and Inclusion

Universal Design for Learning and Learning Disorders

  1. Examples of frameworks can be seen in UDL frameworks.
  2. Accessible Digital Office Documents and Office Applications :

WP3: Access to content

This wiki is for discussions on developing a standards-based vocabulary to improve access to digital content, eg on the Learning Resource Exchange.
  • Updated D3.1: Content Issues D3.1 (doc)
  • Work by Elena Shulman on adapting IMS Access for All Specification v3.0 Core Profile for SENnet:

Examples of resources

Post your links to Resources that are good examples of the kind of objects we would like to describe. Click on the link to find out more.

Standards and specifications

Please click on the link and post suggested Standards for describing resources with adaptive features. Then we can discuss the relative merit of each standard and which parts will be useful for our work.

Issues to be discussed

  1. Translation: Are we going to gather materials in every partner’s language? Are we going to translate into all languages? Are we selecting a few and translate them?
  2. Start with a national set of resources already connected to the LRE, e.g. Belgium’s Klascement
  3. SENnet work plan has a target of 200 and also a commitment to conduct a survey of ministries on SEN resource collections in spring 2013

Note that, for the planned 2013 survey of ministries on SEN resources (see attachment ICT for Inclusion - Country Survey), they have already been asked to complete a lengthy survey on SEN. However there is no question about digital resources as such.
