Quite simply the name, 5/99, refers to the number of a JISC circular letter. It was the fifth circular issued by the JISC in 1999. So the name is pretty meaningless to those outside the JISC or not involved in one of 54 projects that were funded via the circular. The majority of the projects have now completed, the programme end date was July 2003.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue38/5-99" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue38 feature article balviar notay rachel bruce british library bufvc cerlim edina jisc jisc collections mimas oai surrey institute of art & design ukoln university college london university of liverpool university of oxford university of strathclyde chcc dner eevl elib iconex iesr inspiral jafer jisc information environment jorum patois sosig subject portals project trilt xgrain zetoc accessibility archives authentication authorisation service cataloguing data data set database digital library e-learning ejournal framework further education geospatial data gis higher education infrastructure infrastructure service internet explorer interoperability java jstor learning objects licence metadata open archives initiative open source openurl portal repositories research resource discovery rslp search technology service registry sfx software standards usability video visualisation z39.50 Fri, 30 Jan 2004 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1003 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Review: E-learning and Teaching in Library and Information Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue34/paschoud <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Book review by <a href="/issue34/paschoud#author1">John Paschoud</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Since their first recorded appearance in history (take your pick from <a href="http://www.libraryhq.com/libhistory.html" title="www.libraryhq.com/libhistory.html">www.libraryhq.com/libhistory.html</a>), librarians have had an important role in education at all levels in all major cultures. But the exponential pace of technology change is such that many of them, and the institutions they work in, have not yet caught up with the special relevance of Internet-based technologies for learning. Reading Barbara Allan's latest book would be an effective way to remedy this, quite comprehensively.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue34/paschoud" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue34 review john paschoud jisc london school of economics inspiral digital library e-learning html managed learning environment research rslp url Wed, 15 Jan 2003 00:00:00 +0000 editor 937 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Managed Learning? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue30/angel <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue30/angel#author1">Nicole Harris</a> on current developments towards Managed Learning Environments in the ANGEL project.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The terms MLE (Managed Learning Environment) and VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) are frequently found in use within UK HE institutions at present.

Although apathy was the order of the day and few seats actually changed hands, important changes have been made that are worth mentioning here in<i> Ariadne</i>. In a Cabinet reshuffle the government has replaced the previous Culture secretary, Chris Smith, with Tessa Jowell, formerly a minister of state in the Department for Education and Employment. Working alongside her in the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) will be Tessa Blackstone, also a previous minister in the DFEE.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue28/editorial" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue28 editorial marieke guy british library d-lib magazine jisc oai oxford brookes university queens university belfast ukoln university of oxford agora dner elib inspiral sosig accessibility collection description database digital library dublin core e-learning graphics metadata personalisation preservation raster graphics research resource discovery rslp software svg url vector graphics web development xml Thu, 21 Jun 2001 23:00:00 +0000 editor 790 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk INSPIRAL: Digital Libraries and Virtual Learning Environments http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue28/inspiral <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue28/inspiral#author1">Sarah Currier</a> introduces the JISC project INSPIRAL, which is investigating what's involved in joining digital libraries and VLEs to create a fully integrated online learning experience.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>INSPIRAL (INveStigating Portals for Information Resources And Learning) [<a href="#1">1</a>] is a research project funded by JISC [<a href="#2">2</a>], [<a href="#3">3</a>] to spend six months examining the institutional challenges and requirements involved in linking virtual and managed learning environments (VLEs and MLEs) with digital and hybrid libraries [<a href="#4">4</a>].
