请求技术采用

如果您正在开发新的学习技术或想推荐采用更广泛的学习技术环境的工具,则需要考虑许多事情。关键问题包括收集和存储的数据的隐私和安全性;用于集成和事件处理的标准;以及持续UBC支持技术的适用性和可持续性。


Adoption Guidelines

Primary guidelines for wider institutional adoption, integration, and support of new learning technology are as follows.

Early Integration: Generally, while technology is in experimental / development / pilot stages, UBC does not support integration with institutional data sources or other learning technologies within the Learning Technology Environment (this includes all currentnewbee赞助雷竞技 ). Exceptions may exist where technology cannot effectively be tested without some level of integration.

Privacy Considerations: In order for any technology to be considered for institutional adoption (and integration), it must be able to integrate into the Learning Technology Environment in aFIPPA-compliant way. For all new technology that utilizes UBC identity data, aPrivacy Impact Assessmentwill also need to be completed. When technology comes from an external vendor, an agreement with the vendor around confidentiality and security of data may also be required.

Integration Standards: UBC privileges standards-based approaches to integration, using integrations such asLearning Tools Interoperability (LTI)orLTI Advantageand authentication services such asshibboleth.,CASandELDAP. It is also desirable that technology adopt standards-based methods of storing and emitting learning events, such asCaliperorxAPI, for learning analytics.

Pilot Process: Learning technology requires piloting with instructors to generate evidence of value for the institution before consideration of institutional adoption. Apilot evaluation frameworkhas been established to support this process. Upon completion, evaluation reports are reviewed by the Learning Technology EnvironmentOperations Committeebefore going to theLT Hub LeadershiporLearning Technology Leadership Team,适当的决定institutional adoption.

Central Support Criteria: In order for the LT Hub support group to onboard a learning technology as a managed support service, the technology needs to demonstrate a degree of impact (numbers of users / faculties that will benefit) and/or uniqueness of functionality (differentiation with other tools within the Learning Technology Environment that are currently supported). Best effort support will be provided for adopted technology that falls outside this criteria.

Code Review: Where the LT Hub is requested to administer new technology, peer review of the code base and system dependencies may be required. Technology may also be scrutinized for sustainability of service and the ability to resolve functional issues and security bugs in a timely fashion.


Development Recommendations

If you are developing a new learning technology, here are best practices for aligning with ecosystem requirements:

  • Consult with theLT Hubat the start of the project to understand how the proposed technology may fit within the overall Learning Technology Environment and align approaches for coding, data privacy, event handling, and integration with institutional practices.
  • Consider involving LT Hub development resources to oversee development.
  • Utilize LT Hub peer review to review code during development.
  • Consult with LT Hub about evaluation support for piloting and evaluating the technology, once developed.

Technology Requests

If you are interested in investigating the integration of a new/developed learning technology into the Learning Technology Environment, contact theLT Hubto arrange a meeting with our team to discuss the next steps. These steps include:

  1. 进行市场扫描以确定是否有其他技术是否包含特定的期望功能。
  2. Investigating the use of other technologies already available in the UBC Learning Technology Environment for the same purpose.
  3. 确认新技术的技术规范和隐私要求符合UBC标准。
  4. Potentially organizing a limited pilot of the new technology.
