ANR Project HUBBLE: HUman oBservatory Based on anaLysis of e-LEarning traces.

The HUBBLE project proposes the creation of an observatory for the construction and sharing of analysis processes of  traces of massive on-line courses. Our observatory will give the actors of such courses (e.g. teachers, researchers, designers, students, administrators and policy makers) the possibility to analyze and explain the teaching and learning phenomena occurring  within e-learning environments. The analysis processes we build will therefore accompany actors’ decision making, but will also guide researchers and other actors in the elaboration of analytical const ructs, models and indicators. The HUBBLE project will be based on a platform that allows for the construction, sharing and management of analysis  processes concerning the traces that are available in the observatory. In such a context, we consider it crucial to address  the ethical concerns of stocking and analyzing traces.

ITEA 2 Project MOOCTAB: Massive Open Online Course TABlet

MOOCTAB aims at creating a tablet based platform dedicated to the lifelong learning (primary, secondary, higher, and continuous) using an on-demand MOOC platform. The MOOCTAB project intends to answer these challenges by developing a cloud based European MOOC on Demand platform with a Plug&Play approach deployable in Europe and developing countries. This platform will take advantage of existing technology bricks and existing open source platforms like edX. Enhancement of this platform will be detailed in the SoTA and innovation paragraphs.


At the other end of the chain, tablet devices are the perfect catalyser for e-education and to consume MOOC content. The tablets are taking over the market share from workstation computers due to their competitive pricing and rich multimedia features. Tablet computers provide a unique opportunity to create a truly portable learning experience. Lightweight with a long battery life, they offer possibilities not previously seen with other mobile devices. This lends itself to better use of technology within teaching. Using tablets in scenarios, such as field trips, workshops or physical education lessons offers opportunities for research, evidence gathering and presentation. All of this has brought new pedagogic perspectives to the teachers, but there are still challenges to overcome. Supporting teachers with training is essential in order to realise the potential of this technology in the classroom.

ANR Network Project ORPHEE (

The Orphée Network aims at structuring Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) stakeholders communities (industry with special focus on SMEs, providers, designers, educational institutions and professional associations, decision makers, research laboratories, etc.) in order to leverage the synergy of partners to successfully take up TEL challenges, with effective and sustainable results. The focus of the project is on three main issues: International, Business and Training & Experimentations. A road map will be  adopted to sustain the network beyond the two years of the ANR project. 

From a training perspective, the objectives are to create a TEL doctoral school at a national level, to provide content for online courses with theoretical, technical and practical content (e.g. MOOCs), to promote learning from experience, knowledge sharing, and collaborative knowledge building. Orphee tools will include a portal, support to collaborative projects, etc. The Orphée Network will develop partnership with the TEL industry and providers with the objective to enhance knowledge transfert, to discuss key TEL issues, and to respond to call for projects.  At an international level, the main goals is to develop the connections between the French and the international research communities. For this purpose, the Orphée Network will support the creation of strong consortia committed to play an active role, to promote the technical and scientific competences of the French TEL research community, and to be part of international TEL studies and research projects.
