Project Description

The project contributes to the openness for ubiquitous learning of the existing large-scale repositories of digitised information and to the process of its transformation into learning content, adequately enhancing and facilitating the knowledge building. The project addresses innovative development of the learning processes components - resources, services, communication spaces. The project will focus on the learning communication spaces by integrating web-, digital television and mobile technologies to support cross-media learning content. New knowledge-on-demand services of e-Learning management systems based on this integration will improve and extend the learning services within new consistent pedagogical scenarios. The primary target group of the projects are the eLearning actors (authors of courses, lecturers, advanced learners, learning content providers) creating courseware materials for university students and/or for adult learners in non-formal and informal education. The secondary target group consists of eLearning providers (companies and training institutions) and technology providers (DTV-companies, mobile operators), interested of cross-media delivery of learning materials

The access to annotated and adequately structured knowledge from digital archives by means of the project authoring studio will enable lecturers/authors to participate in 'open source' dynamic content development from massive, dynamically growing learning resources. The project is aiming at development of the following outputs:

  1. A set of of learning scenarios for ubiquitous learning in different learning contexts, modelling learning process and learning materials by considering different ways and phases of cross-media authoring, access, delivery, study and assessments through different modes and levels of integrated web-based, DVB and mobile technologies. They will specify requirements for the learning platform from the learner perspective of ubiquitous learning processes in different settings (home, classroom, work and on-the-move learning).
  2. An environment for transforming digitised knowledge from existing digital archives in courseware objects with emphasis on semantic annotation and access. The environment will integrate tools for pre-processing of digital objects (format transformation, segmentation, indexing, annotation, semantic description etc.) and authoring studio for building-up courseware objects for cross-media delivery on the base of learning designs, implementing the developed scenarios.
  3. Knowledge-on-demand ubiquitous learning platform, integrating learning resources, generated by means of the authoring studio and combining platform communication spaces through knowledge-on-demand learning services. The platform communication spaces integrate IP-based, DVB and mobile technologies.
  4. Platform validation by extended experimentation of its functionality and usability by end-users - authors/lecturers and learners in multiple national contexts. The experimentation will be based on specific validation methodology, designed during internal assessment and considering the possible constraints of the media, the delivery environment of the experiments and the foreseen ways for personalisation, according to media and context-oriented needs and to the learning styles/teaching styles of the students/content authors’ preferences. The project addresses the integration of ICT research and development activities to meet the challenges of Europe enlargement by design and development of ubiquitous platform, providing highly customisable knowledge-on-demand learning services for the broad public in ubiquitous manner.
