A two-step process will first develop an industry roadmap to gather stakeholder requirements, and then launch an e-learning community platform at learn.scot designed to meet those requirements.
As explained in this blog, the core design goal is a ‘Virtual School’:
“a national online curriculum developed and delivered digitally in really simple, open-access websites, no passwords, no gatekeeping, just lessons broadcast daily on a website, join in if you can. Scotland has many superstar teachers who could deliver classes to the nation’s kids in a virtual school – we could get to know them as well as our own fantastic class teachers. Lessons could be live and recorded to watch later if children can’t get to them right away.”
Specific features will include:
The initiative is intended to provide a keystone foundation for achieving our overall mission of building a world-leading Scottish digital nation.
Education isn’t an isolated activity only for schools, it’s essential to successful organizations, life development and every other facet of cohesive and progressive society, and this can be reflected through a wholly national approach to Digital Learning.
Any and all are welcome to contribute to the design of this initiative, through as small a contribution as submitting a single Feature Idea or through much more extensive involvement in the building and running of the platform.
