Learning Environment Modeling (LEM) is a process for designing learning environments such as courses, workshops, and training programs. LEM uses visualization techniques to represent key information about the way learning environments are designed – similar to architectural drawings for the design of buildings.
LEM supports decision-making and facilitates more effective communication throughout the design process. LEM can be used by individual designers or as a tool for enhancing team communication and collaboration when designing learning environments.
Learning Environment Models are blueprints used for communicating the design of learning environments.
Learning Environment Models are blueprints used for communicating the design of learning environments. LEM can be used during course design, teaching, and evaluation processes to improve insights and make better decisions. Once a learning environment is modeled, it can be shared, adapted, stored, and enhanced over time. It can also be used as a guide while teaching/facilitating.
Learning environment models can represent entire courses, or could be used to represent specific sections or characteristics of learning environments.
The Learning Environment Modeling Language (LEML) is the visual toolkit used for creating learning environment models. The LEML framework consists of a set of symbols, each with defined meaning, that can be assembled together to represent learning environment models.
