What is Learning System

Handbook of Research on Hybrid Learning Models: Advanced Tools, Technologies, and Applications
A learning system is essentially a collection of artefacts that are ‘brought together’, in an appropriate way, in order to create an environment that will facilitate various types of learning process. Learning systems can take a variety of different forms - for example, a book, a mobile form, a computer, an online forum, a school and a university. Most learning systems will provide various types of learning resource and descriptions of procedures for using these to achieve particular learning outcomes. They will also embed various strategies for assessing the levels and quality of the achievement of their users.

Using Metanotation as a Tool for Describing Learning Systems
Philip Barker (University of Teesside, UK)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-60566-380-7.ch003
Metanotation is a powerful tool for describing systems, objects and processes. This chapter illustrates how this tool can be used to specify the nature and characteristics of learning systems and the various artefacts from which they are composed. It is suggested that messages and messaging systems are the fundamental building blocks from which learning artefacts are created. The chapter therefore discusses the nature of communication and messaging from an educational perspective and then outlines how various types of message artefact can be used to build hybrid learning systems that involve the use of Webs, Wikis, weblogs and electronic books.
