<p><strong>London &mdash; Oct. 18</strong><br />A model for the central design and publishing of online qualification-based university and professional learning materials within the U.K. government&rsquo;s Pathway to Professions initiative is one of the learning design themes of Echelon Learning&rsquo;s stand at December&rsquo;s Online Information exhibition and conference.<br /><br />Web-based urban design skills (UDS) learning has been commissioned from Echelon by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) to act as a central resource for universities and institutes participating in the government-sponsored Pathway to Professions initiative.<br /><br />The major cost in developing blended or distance learning courses for CPD, diploma, certificate or master&#39;s qualifications lies in development and editing of the content. </p><p>Origination costs for UDS learning are split eight ways among the universities and institutes involved, with editing handled centrally via a content management system and distribution centralized via the Web.<br /><br />Echelon has commissioned and published the learning so that it is consistent, attractive to use and easy to access.<br /><br />Publishing is via a proprietary content management system, offering a capability for interactive questions and hidden feedback. <br /><br />Distribution is via a “lite” learning management system, which allows for storage, search and usage-tracking capabilities via the Web.<br /><br />Echelon specializes in developing and publishing a blend of proprietary and generic content for qualification, CPD and online performance support.<br /><br />The company sees the UDS distance learning project as an important model for broader future application.<br /><br />”It brings a centralized, easily edited and updated resource of professionally published material at a cost that can be reduced commensurately by the number of bodies sharing it,” Director David Hill said.</p>
