Responsive Open Learning Environments (ROLE) is a European collaborative project with 16 internationally renowned research groups from 6 EU countries and China. ROLE´s main task is to deliver and test prototypes of highly responsive Personal Learning Environments, offering breakthrough levels of effectiveness, flexibility, user-control and mass-individualisation.
Responsive Open Learning Environments (ROLE) offer adaptivity and personalization in terms of content and navigation and the entire learning environment and its functionalities. This approach permits individualization of the components, tools, and functionalities of a learning environment, and their adjustment or replacement by existing web-based software tools. Learning environment elements can be combined to generate (to mashup) new components and functionalities, which can be adapted by lone learners or collaborating learners to meet their own needs and to enhance the effectiveness of their learning. This empowers each user to generate new tools and functions according to their needs, and can help them to establish a livelier and personally more meaningful learning context and learning experience.
ROLE’s generic framework uses an open source approach, interoperable across software systems and technology. Hence any tool created by an individual is available from a pool of services and tools to all learners via the internet, no matter which learning environment, operating system, or device they use, and which subject matter they learn.
Respective activities have been defined to bring the results of ROLE to the targeted international markets in higher education and corporate training. Thus, significant benefits arise for the learners, their communities, employer, TEL developers and society.
