Smart space for LearningTM - A network of connected learning nodes

A Smart Space for Learning (SS4L) addresses the search to find appropriate learning services such as courses, seminars, and web-based training applications, by connecting multiple educational nodes and thereby providing an overview of the learning services available. The ELENA project set up an operational learning services network based on an interoperable communication infrastructure between heterogeneous system peers. The learning resource selection process is supported by a Personal Learning Assistant (PLA) that implements the intelligent mediation learning services based on user profiling, service evaluation and reputation ratings. The PLA is at the same time the interface for learning providers to place their offers in the network. In addition, the software called "HCD Suite" supports the training management process by different controlling and evaluation tools.

To summarize the above goals in three distinct qualities, a Smart Space for Learning has three innovative aims: OPEN interfaces between heterogeneous systems and content, INTELLIGENT support to learners, and EFFECTIVE learning for individuals that serve the needs of organizations. It is the aim of the HCD Suite to support the HR development in its attempt to ensure that an employee constantly has access to the right training measures in order to optimise her own and her department's performance.
