The JISC Centre For Educational Technology and Interoperability Standards (CETIS) organised a two-day widget bash at the University of Bolton last week. The event was attended by representatives from JISC projects, such as DOULS (Distributed Open University Learning Systems), as well as European TEL projects, including ROLE and iTEC. The first day was dedicated to presentations by various projects and seminars on widget development, while the second day was dedicated to coding and group-work. Alexander Mikroyannidis from KMi presented the latest advances in widget technologies developed by the ROLE project. He introduced the newly built ROLE widget store, where users can browse through a variety of learning widgets and download them or embed them in their favourite widget container. He also talked about the lessons learned so far from the OpenLearn test-bed and the challenges lying in the adoption of Personal Learning Environments.
