Abstract

The deployment of non-trivial collaborative learning situations in VLEs is a burdensome and error-prone process for teachers, especially as the number of participants, groups, tools and activities grows. Besides, this deployment frequently suffers from the limited set of VLE built-in tools teachers can select to support learning activities. GLUE! and GLUE!-PS are two alternative routes for the deployment of collaborative learning situations that respectively tackle the integration of multiple external tools in multiple VLEs, and the deployment of abstract learning designs generated within multiple authoring tools in multiple VLEs. This paper discusses how the GLUE! - GLUE!-PS partnership represents a deployment route that overcomes both the two aforementioned limitations, when deploying in VLEs non-trivial collaborative learning situations that require the integration of external tools. An authentic, though somewhat complex collaborative situation deployed in Moodle illustrates the benefits of the GLUE! - GLUE!-PS approach. Higher education teachers that deployed this situation in Moodle as part of a professional development workshop highlighted that this approach allows an efficient deployment, and emphasized the benefit of reusing learning designs in other courses and VLEs.
