On 13th and 14th of March all the partners met in Paris for the third transnational MyLK project meeting. The aim of the meeting was to analyze and discuss the prototype of MyLK platform. The first day we focused on the functionalities, analyzed what we have and discussed possible enhancements. During the second day we… Read More


In the last post, we discussed how to recommend learning resources, based on the kind of information that MyLK is likely to be gathering anyway. We finished by introducing the idea of a career or learning map, and career paths – not just the formally recognised career paths, but, vitally, less well-known career paths. This… Read More


In the context of formal education, advice can be straightforward: to achieve this qualification, start here, go there, do this, do that. In a highly structured career it might also be straightforward. But when we start to talk about informal learning, it becomes very hard to find anyone able and willing to give reliable relevant… Read More


Educational technologies have always been associated with a set of buzzwords like “revolution”, “ the next big thing” or “the most important invention of our age”. Meanwhile, all of us know that some promising technologies have failed while others have unexpectedly succeeded. In an economic world where it is crucial to gain competitive advantages, the… Read More


Recent research showed us that 50 – 60 years old people have had on average four different employers during their working life. On the contrary, students entering the labour market now and in closer future, will have eleven different employers! On average!! What are the consequences of this huge increase of different number of employers?… Read More


In the MyLK platform we need to decide how to store data gathered from the different platforms providing learning content that we are tracking. Because we had to be compliant with LMS as providers of “formal” content, we chose to use xAPI who is able to store many more data than SCORM. So each time… Read More


  MyLK involves recording people’s informal learning, and InLOC is a format for representing structures of learning outcomes. At the start of the project, there was the thought that InLOC might be used in MyLK, but how feasible is this? And what might the significance of an approach like InLOC be for the MyLK project,… Read More


General benefits increased awareness and reflection about own learning, easier identification of the learning objectives awareness about digital learning episodes and of the learning objectives (LOC) they have developed during these episodes, Increased ability to structure the LOC they develop in a digital way, easier access to validation and recognition of skills and competences management… Read More


In order to establish a level of granularity of learning for MyLK’s tracking we have decided to focus on learning episodes. A learning episode is a set of one or more periods of time during which a learner is engaged in learning. It can have a larger or smaller granularity: one greater learning episode may… Read More
