|L4All - LifeLong Learning in London for All
project is funded through the Joint Information
Systems Committee (JISC), as part of its call for ‘Regional e-Learning pilot projects around distributed e-Learning’.
L4All targets the independent lifelong learner by creating a system that records and shares learning pathways and trails. L4All will create a Web Portal that will allow learners to access selected information and resources, plan their own learning pathways, and maintain and reflect upon their individual record of learning throughout their lives. The system will allow learners to share their learning plans and pathways with other learners, in order to formulate future learning goals and aspirations. Tutors will be able to publish recommended pathways through courses and modules, thereby facilitating progression into Higher Education (HE) and supporting career choices.
To achieve this, the L4All project will work beyond infrastructure and technological barriers, bringing together a diverse group of people from a range of institutions, all of whom are committed to providing learning opportunities which enhance career development and widen participation across the London region. L4All will be the catalyst for devising a new framework of policies that engage the interest of lifelong learners, developing their trust in carrying out e-learning and web-based activities, whilst encouraging learners to take responsibility for planning and managing their own lifelong learning and continued professional development. The L4All pilot will provide not only a valuable resource for learners taking non-traditional pathways into HE, but will also act as a valuable test-bed of cross-institutional access management, enabling the assisted adoption of Shibboleth by a number of London institutions.
