Forging Online Education through FIRE
Forging Online Education through FIRE (FORGE) is a project bringing the FIRE and eLearning worlds together. FORGE will align FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation) with the ongoing education revolution. This project will specify development methodologies and best practices for offering FIRE experimentation facilities to learners and to the learning community in general. FORGE relates to communications and IT, as well as to other disciplines including the physical and social sciences. It will lead to a strong connection between the learning community and existing FIRE platforms and supporting tools.
The eLearning community will benefit from the use of very high performance facilities, provided as reusable learning solutions. Educators, content providers and students will acquire access to world-class facilities and use them to create and execute scientific experiments. The FIRE eLearning tools and services developed by FORGE, as well as the associated learning materials will be made available as OERs, so that they can be reused and repurposed by the eLearning community for a variety of learning contexts. Finally, FIRE will benefit through the addition of an ever-growing set of FIRE-specific learning materials for an increasing number of FIRE-based students, leading to increased awareness and use. The openness and reusability of FIRE will be promoted to the eLearning community, thus leading to the development of new FIRE facilities and the extension of existing ones in order to address specific learning requirements.
