Ever since our research partnership with Shell exploring 'Innovative and Dynamic Approaches to Technology Enhanced Self-Directed Learning' [CalShell], we have been interested in tools which might support knowledge workers in managing and participating in their learning and development. We call these ‘charting tools’.
We have been working with MHN Limited based in Edinburgh to create prototype charting tools. Of course, many of the features listed above exist in other systems, and so for the charting tools we have developed, our focus has been on tools which enable goal-setting and sharing among small groups. We are now actively testing the prototype tools in different contexts.
The tools are available at the Charting Tools Demo Site.
There are support pages available at the Charting Wiki
Please contact Colin Milligan if you would like to see the tools or help develop them (they will be open source).
