Abstract : In this paper we consider an initial implementation of a system for managing and using IMS Learning Design LD to represent online learning activities. LD has been suggested Koper & Olivier, 2004 as a flexible way to represent and encode learning materials, especially suited to online and web-based learning while neutral to the pedagogy that is being applied. As such it offers a chance to address a gap in the preparation of learning materials and their eventual use by students by providing a formal description of the approach, roles and services needed for a particular unit of learning. The potential in learning design that most interests us is its scope for the exchange of validated and formalised designs and so encouraging reuse. Until full implementations exist this potential cannot be explored and it is hard to predict if learning design will provide value in describing either full courses or in describing isolated activities. The initial work is therefore to implement a system for managing, validating and inspecting learning design building on collaboration between the Institute of Educational Technology at the Open University UK OUUK and the Educational Technology Expertise Centre OTEC at the Open University of the Netherlands OUNL, who produced a Learning Design Engine CopperCore http:-coppercore.org- released under Open Source.
