Responsive Open Learning Environments

Logo role

The Vision of ROLE is to empower learners to build their own responsive learning environment, which supports them to be aware of their own learning process and to reflect this process. ROLE should be user-centred in the way that an individually adapted composition of the learners’ own learning environments will be made possible. To this end and infrastructure will be provided which can easily be used by learners. ROLE’s generic framework uses an open source approach, interoperable across software systems and technology, as well as extendible with new learning tools. Hence any tool created by an individual is available from a pool of services and tools to all learners via the internet.
