THE CAPLA MODEL FOR MULTI-CULTURAL ADAPTATION OF LEARNING RESOURCES FOR ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Nathalie Bricon-Souf, Jean-Marie Renard

Abstract

To share medical courses about Alzheimer’s disease, used by French doctors, with Malian doctors, we have to perform cultural adaptation of the learning resources. We present the CAPLA model for adaptation. We introduce why cultural adaptation is indispensable to transform useful resources for France into useful resources for Mali. We introduce the notion of variability and why we think that the explicit knowledge of the variability is useful. We describe the typology of the variability for our medical and multi-countries e-learning situations and how it can help to index the variability of the content of the medical courses. Then, we use the notion of “documentarisation” and “re-documentation” issued from “socio-semantic web” concepts to describe the collective activity of adapting a course. Using the context is still difficult and we propose to detect the manifesting aspects of context, thanks to the variability knowledge. The Alois Software is described, it implements the CAPLA model, it helps to annotate the variability of a course. We show how we use the XML openDocument descriptions obtained from the presentation documents (Impress or Powerpoint) to help people to adapt their courses: thanks to the knowledge we have on the context and the variability, we can mark all the slides that need an adaptation and we can indicate the reason why this adaptation is needed. Next step is to use this knowledge for pervasive and ubiquitous learning.
