Supply-side: V3 Logical Model

Please note, version 3 pages are still available for your reference, but we have disabled links to avoid confusion: please refer to the Data Futures Resources page for project documents for your consideration.

This is the collection logical model. It adheres to the principles and rationale of the Data Landscape Steering Group (DLSG) logical model, which was built out of the Higher Education Data and Information Improvement Programme (HEDIIP) data language project.

It differs from the DLSG logical model in that it is bounded by the scope of the collection design project.

This version includes all the entities and attributes of a sector-wide model which is significantly more than the proposed collection which respects the current mandate - see V3 Implementation for more detail. The colours represent the segments as shown below.

Organisations and Venues (S0) – data items that relate to organisations involved with data collection and other contextual information: Orange

Courses and Modules (S1)  data items that relate to courses, modules and qualifications that a provider is involved in delivering: Blue

Registration (S2) – data items relating to a contract to educate between a student and provider: Light green

Enrolment (S3) – data items relating to a student’s commitment to undertake a specific course session: Red

Learning event (S4) – data items covering a student’s module activity, outcomes and off-venue activity: Dark Green

Leaver (S5) – data items relating to a student ending a registration which would typically result in qualifications and accreditations awarded: Mid Green

Funding and Monitoring (S6) - data items that are specific to funding, financial support and student specific fee information: Light blue

Please refer the the PDF below for a graphical representation of these segments:

v3 segment model

This visualises the seven segments in terms of sequencing and relationships.  Starting with S0 and S1 which are primarily reference data segments and moving to S2 which captures the academic contract between student and provider. From here we have a number of enrolments under that contract and within this learning events at module level. Leaver is captured separately. Funding and monitoring has been disaggregated from the other segments although events are triggered from almost every segment. The disaggregation reflects the randomness of these triggers and looks to stabilise the remainder of the model.

These segments are described in greater detail in V3 implementation. This model will continue to evolve to represent the true entities and relationships within the HE sector while implementation models can be thought of as physical collection models.
