Hellenic Multimedia Action - Software Support for Advanced Vocational Training

Objective

The objectives of the HEL-MME TR Action are to demonstrate the power of multimedia systems in professional training, and to contribute to improvements in the training of personnel in order to help accelerate the development of the national economy.

Two projects were selected within this framework and are described below.

Multimedia Training in Banking (TR-20)

The aim of this project is to develop three training courses in Multimedia using DVI technology. The three titles to be produced on CD-ROM are: "Customer-Oriented System", "Accounting and Financial Principles" and "Financial Management". The Multimedia course material will be used in the training of ten thousand bank employees. As far as the applied-technology is concerned, DVI technology is selected which is a set of video processors and software that give Interactive Multimedia developers the ability to create a digital multimedia platform. Finally, the dissemination activities scheduled by the Hellenic Bank's Association will develop the desired seeding effect.

A Hypermedia Courseware Development Tool For The Financial Sector (TR-16)

Computer-based training (CBT) offers a high-impact, efficient, versatile and reusable method for continuous education. This project will capitalise on the new exciting capabilities offered by the multimedia/hypermedia technology. The project aims at CBT for financial institutions and is divided in two parts.

The first part is concerned with the design and development of a software tool that will enable the creation and maintenance of multimedia training courseware by integrating existing technologies and R&D results from other related research projects.

The second part of the project is concerned with the development of courseware for the banking sector by employing the software tools developed in the first part. The course will provide a step-by-step method whereby employees in the banking sector will be presented with the latest techniques and methods in the corresponding subjects. A trainer will interact with the courseware in a user friendly manner and be presented with concepts, models of operation and advice on how to act, while also prompted for answers in the test cases.
