TELOS testbed (evaluation)
An invitation has been sent to all LORNET partners and researchers to participate in a TELOS testbed (evaluation). The evaluation team should be composed of instructional designers and end users. The evaluation tasks would be executed at each participant’s convenience, that is, in their own space and time.
Participants will be required to follow two preparation sessions to familiarize with the TELOS environment demanding a total of 2 to 3 hours. These sessions will be held at a distance, using some videoconferencing technology. The evaluation process will begin in January 2006 but participant names are requested no later than October 17 th, 2005.
