Daniel Jitnah's Abstract: eLiveLearn is a (very) long term pet project of
mine! eLiveLearn is FOSS (php/linux/apache) based system designed to be a
complete on learning environment. Unlike many other online learning
systems (Learning Management Systems) such as Moodle, Whiteboard etc which
are content management systems (CMS) with added learning support features,
eLiveLearn was design designed from start to fully support the complete
Learning-Assessment-Reporting process in a fully integrated system.
Educators can create online lessons and assessment tasks, Students can
step through online lessons and carry out assessement tasks. Educators can
then mark and provide feedback on students work and generate live reports.

In this talk, I will look at some design features of eLiveLearn and run
through a very simple usage scenario (hands-on). I will also talk about
work that still needs to be done to make it a fully functional ready to
use system and some problems with the system. Audience comment and
feedback will be most appreciated.

This talk may likely be of interest to Educators at secondary and tertiary

Daniel is an educator and runs his own IT company, Greenware IT. He has
been a committee member of LUV for many years.
