On-going research projects (FP6)

IST Call 1

The first TeLearn projects under the Sixth Framework programme started in January 2004 and result from the first call for proposals published for the IST priority of FP6. They have been performing research on the following subjects:

  • personalisation and adaptive learning, dynamic mentoring ( LeActiveMath, iCLASS )
  • integration of GRID, semantic and knowledge technologies to support collaborative learning ( ELeGI )
  • experience-based learning in the classroom, merging formal and informal learning ( iCLASS, CONNECT )
  • bridging the gap between research and education at universities and professional training at the workplace ( PROLEARN )
  • promoting interoperability and standards for learning objects and systems ( TELCERT, UNFOLD )
  • building a European Research Area in the field technology-enhanced learning ( KALEIDOSCOPE )

IST Call 4

Other projects were selected from IST Call 4, with starting dates between October 2005 and March 2006. These projects can be clustered in four groups:

  • Learning & knowledge. This includes research on synergies between learning systems and knowledge management systems and on new approaches to workplace-based learning and competence building, where competencies are seen as the key bridge between the needs of the learner and those of the organisation. This approach goes beyond the delivery of workplace training to supporting lifelong learning.
    The research teams plan to test component infrastructures in various organisational settings, focusing on the interactions between learners and on capturing (tacit) knowledge in associative networks, or on the interactions with business processes and competency models.
    Projects: APOSDLE, KP-LAB, PROLIX, TENCompetence
    More about the projects

  • Learning & cognition. The projects responding to this part of the call are characterised by the interdisciplinary nature of the research, which integrates pedagogy, cognitive science, neuroscience and computer science. They focus on supporting and understanding the learner as an individual and in the context of different and complex social situations, and involve strategies such as role play, affective engagement, and improving the attention span.
    This research will result in tested pedagogical paradigms, conceptual models and innovative technology in different subject areas such as music, mathematics and languages.
    Projects: AtGentive, eCircus, ELEKTRA, i-Maestro, ReMath
    More about the projects

  • Collaborative learning. Some projects combine elements of the two above mentioned research fields and explore new forms of collaboration amongst groups of learners or workers, specifically for ambitious complex problem solving. In this context, development of simulations and games play a major role. One Integrated Project will develop innovative solutions to improve learning in communities of practice.

  • Technology-enhanced learning in the 'enlarged Europe'. The projects resulting from the call 'Strengthening the Integration of the ICT research effort in an Enlarged Europe' deploy a number of different technologies and delivery channels including mobile technologies, digital TV, games and integration in open-platform environments, both for universities and schools. This research work is likely to have a high potential for impact and replication in the enlarged Europe. The consortia show strong participation from the new EU Member States and candidate countries.
