Educational Technology for improved learning
The Learning Components Research Group uses modern software tools, frameworks and technologies to make learning personalized, modularized and recognized.
We capture learning competencies in our "competency cloud". This allows you, your instructors and employers to track and contribute to your learning.
We provide open source software tools, libraries and services to enable all educators to improve instruction and learning through great educational technology.
We align competencies with emerging digital credentials and badges to build connections between student acquisition of skills and knowledge with employer expectations.
The Learning Components Research Group is comprised of educators, developers and instructional technologists who are passionate about improving technology education. We will accomplish this by building open source software tools, libraries, frameworks and services that will promote focused, competency-based learning. As we build these software products, we will track the number of them and provide links here. We will also track the number of employers who will make use of our "competency cloud" to evaluate, endorse and contribute learning competencies.
