In the SCY (Science Created by You, http://www.scy-net.eu) project there will be four missions developed. These mission will be deployed and tested in several countries in the EU. There are 12 partners from 7 countries. The project is started at March 1th, 2008 and will run for 4 years. The total budget of the project is 8 Million Euro.
The SCY project will create a SCY-Lab web site, where all mission can be run from.
As the project just started, it is not yet clear what capabilities the SCY-Lab will have and how they will be achieved. Here are some ideas about the project from the University of Twente.
The students will work individual and in groups. There will be pedagogical agents (who observe the actions of the students) who will make useful suggestions to the students (such cooperate with an other student).
There will several tools developed, which students can use to carry out the missions. The tool could be plain applications, web applications (html, flash or java based) and can run on pcs and/or pdas. The tools can also be used off-line.
All relevant user actions will be logged.
The student will create ELO's (Emerging Learning Object) while working on a mission. A ELO can be almost every thing, such as set of data points, report, mathematical model. The ELOs will be used by other students.
The ELOs are stored in a central repository. An ontology to describe the ELOs will be developed.
The students will work on one or more workspaces. A workspace contains the data describing the work of the student. Multiple students can work on the same workspace (synchronous or asynchronous). Workspaces can be shared, including the correct handling of access rights. Perhaps workspaces can nested in other workspaces. People of the UDE (University of Duisburg-Essen) suggested to use tuple space technology for workspaces.
