PACT: A Pattern-Annotated Course Tool
Save to My Collections
We present PACT: a visual editor for annotating sequences of learning objects with references to pedagogical patterns. Previous efforts to reform pedagogy via design patterns have focused on two approaches, each of which has severe disadvantages: the exchange of pedagogical pattern descriptions and the creation of learning environments informed by them. The key innovation of PACT is its focus on pattern-annotated courses that connect these methods. We discuss the goals driving the design along with the features that comprise this tool. Finally, we identify opportunities for community involvement and future work.
