Learning Technology Research Institute @ London Metropolitan University
The Learning Technology Research Institute (LTRI) conducts research into the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to augment, support and transform learning. Major research themes are: Learning objects and learning design, Learning interaction and networked communities and Informal e-learning. The research on learning objects and learning design concerns the design, development and use of reusable resources and designs. A two-year project has evaluated the use of learning objects with over one thousand students. Learning interaction and networked communities concerns the nature of effective learning dialogue and interaction with an emphasis on the development of supportive software tools. Informal e-learning studies the processes and impact of e-learning in informal settings. It extends the communities studied by the Institute beyond the domains of university, college and school. These research themes are supported by a rich and varied set of research projects. We also conduct evaluation of the implementation of learning technology.
