Think-tank pondering personal traits

Integrated
e-learning solutions provider Click2Learn is the latest to join a think-tank
set up to drive research into the next generation of personalised interactive
learning.

The
project aims to pave the way for personalised learning experiences that adapt
to the skills, knowledge and learning traits of individuals and groups.

As
part of the Customised Learning Experience Online (CLEO) Lab, Click2Learn will
be exploring the best ways of handling content in different learning models
based on the Scorm specification. Scorm – sharable content object reference
model – is one of the learning models established by the e-learning standards
initiative Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL).

“The
CLEO Lab project is probably the most important research the e-learning
industry has ever undertaken,” said Claude Ostyn, Click2Learn’s senior learning
systems strategist. “It will accelerate the growth of a new generation of
e-learning technologies able to deliver increasingly personalised, interactive
and effective learning experiences,” he said.

Others
in the group include Cisco, Microsoft, IBM and NETg.
