Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations // We propose in this paper the “Technology Augmented Learning and Course Management”, or TALCoM that is well suited for integration of online or e-Resources in to Course Curriculum and conduct. The system is evolved for the Indian scenario of Affiliating Universities and their colleges. It is centred on the development of ‘Pedagogically aligned Executable Lesson Plans’, or PELP over the course curriculum to be developed. Course PELP is developed by university assigned group of Subject Matter Experts (SME). The SME may choose the desirable pedagogy and method of course delivery for incorporating into the PELP. It is used to configure the delivery system – be it an LMS, MOOC or any custom platform using which the course is conducted. We call the whole methodology as the ‘Technology Augmented Learning and Course Management’, or TALCoM. Both Formative and Summative assessments are integrated in TALCoM. TALCoM methodology requires some IT support that is aligned with the course delivery model. TALCoM has been shaped by the discussions with the Vice Chancellors of the state universities of Jharkhand in India. The approach presented in this paper is also of value in modernizing teh system of course development and conduct in any collaborating group of colleges or stand-alone institutions as well. TALCoM is also well adapted into the ODL system of education under the Open Universities. // Paper ID 5768
