Info from Steering Committee about National Platform Service

Information concernant un "service national de plateforme"

A la demande du président du Comité de pilotage du Campus Virtuel Suisse (CVS), nous vous transmettons quelques informations sur la situation et l'état actuel de la négotiation concernant la réalisation d'un "service national de plateforme":

  1. Le Comité de pilotage du CVS a soumis à la Conférence Générale (Conférence des Recteurs des Universités Suisses CRUS, Conférence Suisse des Hautes Écoles Spécialisées CSHES, Conférence Suisse des Recteurs des Hautes Écoles Pédagogiques CSHEP) la proposition qu'un service national de plateforme soit offert par SWITCH à partir de janvier 2008. Il est prévu que la plateforme WebCT Vista et une plateforme en logiciel libre soient hébergées. Une répartition du financement entre des contributions fédérales fixes et des frais d' exploitation variables en fonction du nombre d'utilisateurs doit permettre une utilisation peu onéreuse de l'offre.
  2. La CRUS, la CSHES et la CSHEP plaident pour la mise en place d'un service national de plateforme à partir de 2007 et recommandent à SWITCH de négocier avec le Comité de Pilotage du CVS pour réaliser l'hébergement et l'opérationnalisation des plateformes correspondantes.
  3. Le Comité de pilotage du CVS dispose de licences auprès de WebCT Vista jusqu'à la fin 2007 et négocie pour le moment avec SWITCH pour l'acquisition de licences à vie.
  4. Les négociations doivent être conclues entre WebCT, SWITCH et le Secrétariat d’Etat à l'éducation et à la recherche SER. La Conférence universitaire suisse CUS doit approuver formellement la décision. Nous espérons qu'une décision sera encore possible cette année.
  5. La fusion de WebCT et de Blackboard a peu d'influence sur le service de plateforme à court et à moyen terme. A long terme, une modification concernant les produits software est possible.

Concernant les processus, nous vous tiendrons informés prochainement.

Avec nos cordiales salutations
Christian Hohnbaum, Coordinateur SVC

 

Information zur Realisierung eines «Nationalen Plattform Dienstes»

Im Auftrag des Präsidenten des Lenkungsausschuss des Swiss Virtual Campus (SVC), informieren wir Sie über den aktuellen Stand der Verhandlungen und die momentane Situation betreffend der Realisierung eines «Nationalen Plattform Dienstes»:

  1. Der Lenkungsausschuss SVC hat der Gesamtkonferenz (Rektorenkonferenz der Schweizer Universitäten CRUS, Konferenz der Fachhochschulen der Schweiz KFH, Schweizerische Konferenz der Rektorinnen und Rektoren der Pädagogischen Hochschulen SKPH) den Vorschlag unterbreitet, dass durch SWITCH ab Januar 2008 ein nationaler Plattform Dienst angeboten werden soll. Vorgesehen ist, dass die Lernplattform WebCT Vista und eine Open Source Plattform gehostet werden. Eine Aufteilung der Finanzierung in feste Bundesbeiträge und nutzerabhängige Hostinggebühren soll eine sehr kostengünstige Nutzung des Angebots ermöglichen.
  2. CRUS, KFH und SKPH befürworten die Einrichtung eines gesamtschweizerischen Serviceangebots ab 2007 und empfehlen SWITCH, mit dem Lenkungsausschuss des SVC zu verhandeln, um die Unterbringung und den Betrieb der entsprechenden Plattformen zu realisieren.
  3. Der Lenkungsausschuss SVC verfügt über WebCT Vista Lizenzen bis Ende 2007 und verhandelt zurzeit zusammen mit SWITCH den Erwerb von «lebenslangen Lizenzen».
  4. Die Verhandlungen müssen zwischen WebCT, SWITCH und dem Staatssekretariat für Bildung und Forschung SBF abgeschlossen werden. Die Schweizerische Universitätskonferenz SUK muss den Entscheid formell bestätigen. Wir hoffen auf eine Entscheidung noch in diesem Jahr.
  5. Der Merger von WebCT und Blackboard hat kurz- und mittelfristig voraussichtlich wenig Einfluss auf den Plattform Dienst. Langfristig ist eine Veränderung bezüglich Softwareprodukten möglich.

Über den weiteren Prozess werden wir Sie auf dem Laufenden halten.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
Christian Hohnbaum, SVC-Koordinator
