A solution based on an open Web platform
ABOUT THE PROJECT
It is a digital book!
Exercises and interactive learning objects
Multiple-choice, essay questions and many other interactive exercises that can be corrected in real time.
It is very simple to find a content inside the ePub. The format offers support to educational taxonomies and metadata.
eduPUB allows synchronized data to become reports of individual performance and other useful tools for teachers and students.
Connection with a data center
With the xAPI protocol, eduPUB can transmit and receive data both synchronously and asynchronously through a Learning Record Store (LRS).
LRS – The Learning Record Store is the heart of any xAPI ecosystem. It receives, stores and returns xAPI instructions. All other tools that send or retrieve learning activity data will interact with LRS as a primary storage center.
xAPI – Experience API is an e-learning software specification that enables collection of data on a broad range of experiences that an individual can have (online and offline).
An open platform
The ePub connected file that we created is read by e-readers on tablets, computers or smartphones. The answers that are filled and sent go into a repository that stores data in a compatible format that can be used in many applications such as to create a data visualization to assist teachers, or to integrate an LMS such as Moodle.
Designed, from the start, for everyone
The connected digital book follows accessibility good practices defined by international consortia so that disabled people can use the books without access barriers.
Lightweight and compatible with popular smartphones
All of the platform functionalities are supported on readers available at no charge on the market, such as Thorium and Lithium. On software that do not support more modern technological resources, the book is displayed as an ordinary book for reading.
Easy for teachers, easy for students
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Connect to the GitHub project
To use this prototype, download the content available on GitHub and install it in your server according to the specification. After the installation, add the credentials on the ePub file, so it can communicate with the xAPI.
To make your own connected ePub, follow the instructions available on the project documentation.
This is a collaborative experimental project. Participate in this project to make it more robust. Considerations about privacy and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD) are available in this link (in portuguese).
