The Inclusive Learning Exchange is a revolutionary learning object repository service that responds to the individual needs of the learner. TILE provides the authoring tools, repository architecture, and preference schema needed to support this learner-centric transformation. The service is now available as a functioning prototype and will be implemented across Canada by a network of learning communities from many sectors. TILE will act as an exemplar of inclusive e-learning and form the basis of extensions to international e-learning specifications. By making dynamic web-based broadband e-learning inclusive of people with disabilities TILE will advance e-learning functionality for all learners.
TILE demonstrates the potential benefits of personalized courseware for the learner and the impact this would have on the educator or content producer. Through this project we demonstrate the practical boundaries of transformable content and the tools needed to support the mastery of learner customizable teaching.
