Stephan Thieringer, COO of Giunti Labs North America, commented: “Globalization is creating new demands and opportunities for learning. Through new mobile delivery platforms and the improved control and interoperability made possible through MIT’s Open Knowledge Initiative (OKI) and its OSID specifications for open service oriented learning architectures, we are now able to create a learning systems architecture that provides contextually relevant, personalized content — just-in-time, just enough and just as desired, to meet the needs of the individual learner.”
Giunti Labs Innovations in Digital Learning and Content Management
Described by Elliott Masie as “a wonderful worldwide advocate for the learning industry,” Giunti Labs’ CEO Fabrizio Cardinali joined Masie in advance of the show for a podcast on the state of digital learning and content. Listen to it at: http://learningsystems08.com/giunti, or read a transcript at http://www.giuntilabs.com/info.php?vvu=15&pud=477.
In the podcast, Cardinali comments on Giunti Labs’ leadership in emerging trends including the uptake of more informal and personalized learning content and on new delivery technologies including mobile devices, location based content, portals and software as service. He also describes the emerging “digital marketplace” in which creators, traders and brokers will be able to pass content from digital repositories through learning content management systems to make it easy for end learners to download relevant content on the fly to their iPods, iPhones and through YouTube videos for educational purposes.
Cardinali’s podcast also details Giunti Labs’ recent acquisition of the HarvestRoad’s Hive digital repository and technical content management system (TCMS) that are now integrated with Giunti Labs solutions for content authoring and management. These technologies are powerful tools that can drive the adoption and success of the digital marketplace.
From his viewpoint as chair of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG), Cardinali closes his podcast discussion on how the world economy is impacting the industry and expresses his optimism on progress toward standards for reusable and discoverable content. Cardinali expresses his belief that open architectures like OKI, and standards including SCORM and IMS Common Cartridge, Moodle and Sakai will positively streamline the packaging, harvesting and distribution of learning content.
