Giunti Labs will deliver a post-event workshop on new generation online, mobile and virtual learning content production and management at EdNET in Chicago, USA, on 16th September.
Giunti Labs, the leading learning and mobile content management solution provider, is running an invitational half-day seminar on innovative and creative solutions for new generation educational content production, sharing and management. The seminar – which takes place from 8.30am to 12.30pm on Wednesday 16th September at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers – is part of the EdNET 2009 conference (13 – 16 September), being held in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Participation to the half day workshops is free for event attendees and external invited interested parties on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. To reserve a place at this workshop, contact Minna Leikas, Giunti Labs’ marketing manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop will introduce new generation, state-of-the-art learning content production and management standards, such as IMS Common Content Cartdrige and OKI OSIDs Open DR Access and Federation Services, as well as showcase Giunti Labs’ engagement into world-leading research & development initiatives and real cases of LCMS and DR deployments worldwide.
It will also showcase R&D projects, such as the CONTSENS, IRMOS, MOBIlearn, Sculpteur and Wearit at work projects from the EU Research Framework. These address new generation mobile, wearable and virtual worlds based learning.
In addition, delegates will be introduced to highly successful market projects such as the Saudi Maknaz Initiative, for sharing educational resources in all the Kingdom’s universities; the Cegos SoftSkill training catalogue, for the production of Europe’s leading multi-language soft skills training catalgoue, and the UK NHS R-ITI initiative, one of the world’s most effective medical education content production initiatives to date.
The workshop is intended for academic and corporate CIOs and CLOs, along with strategy decision makers who want to implement new digital content production, management and sharing strategies, by implementing learning content management system (LCMS) and digital repository (DR) solutions in their learning organisations behind their existing LMS and VLE set-ups, such as Moodle™, Sakai™, Angel™ or Blackboard™ Educational VLEs and other leading LMS solutions on the Corporate side. This should allow them to achieve wider reusability, interoperability, accessibility and durability of learning materials while sharing them among federated DR networks and empowering new generation learning experiences personalised to the device, location and background skills and portfolios of target users.
The workshop will be delivered by Fabrizio Cardinali, who is CEO of Giunti labs and also Chair of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG); a member of the Board of Directors of the IMS Global learning Consortium, and Global Advisor to MIT’s Open Knowledge Initiative (OKI).
At the accompanying EdNET exhibition, Giunti Labs is launching new releases of its globally acclaimed online and mobile learning content management Suite, eSkills and ePortfolio management system and Digital Repository solution: learn eXact LCMS, eXact Portfolio and Harvestroad Hive DR.
