Interoperability Between Visual UML Design Applications and Authoring Tools for Learning Design
A learning design is the result of the description of a teaching-learning process. It implies the consideration of aspects such as the context in which teaching is being developed, the most suitable teaching method in this context, the necessary resources, the contents of the training activity, or the assessment criteria. IMS-LD is a specification which provides a containment framework of elements that formally describe any teaching-learning process design, and for this reason it supports the description of learning designs using specific authoring tools. In this paper, a method and software application (based on XMI and XSLT technologies) that ensure interoperability among UML modeling tools and IMS-LD editors are presented.
