Babylon & ONtology: Multilingual and cognitive e-Learning Management System via PDA phone
Start date: Jan 1, 2008,
BONy is based on cognitive e-Learning Management System (eLMS) allowing users tofind and learn the units strictly requested and strictly necessary to achieve their trainingexperience. BONy will supply a multilingual access to information. This involves anontological approach to the knowledge and an interconnection among formativecontents and interactive multimedia thanks to the semantic web methodology. Formativeunits will be delivered using a PDA phone, in order to produce the first in-site intelligente-learning system which will change user's perspective on learning. We would like toimprove the following ICT equipment able to support efficiently any training process: (i)an Ontology based e-course on Project Cycle Management (P.C.M.) because projectmanagement is a European professional reality, with the vision to promote futureEuropean cooperation to realize further courses on different subjects: businesses, arts,etc. (ii) an adaptive and intuitive e-learning system able to learn and configure itselfaccording to it's "understanding" and interaction with learners' behaviour, improving asystem able to identify learners' requirements and progress, to generate random test onthe formative units required and to verify trainees' progress; (iii) a mobile phone adaptersystem able to summarise intelligently the required units and to send smart modules toa PDA phones. (iv) a trainee/trainer Social Network acting as "bank of time" helpful tocreate a "Friends-to-Friends" expert community, able to exchange know-how on ProjectCycle Management, with the aim of further integration, inter-cultural dialogue andcomprehension. Example: We can imagine a Greek trainee moving to Italy for a trainingexperience as a project manager assistant into an Italian enterprise. Our trainee couldneed formative units regarding the project cycle management and pertinent Italianlinguistic course. BONy will automatically generate a linguistic and professional entrytest (user's behaviour modelling). Ones the system has identified the trainee'sknowledge level, it will suggest appropriate units about P.C.M. in the desired language(multilingual access). The user can select pertinent units, expressing his preference andthen start to learn (learning phase). As soon as the user considers to be ready to testhis new skills, the BONy virtual tutor will automatically generate appropriate multianswertests on the basis of consulted units. The system will then suggest other units(access to upper skill level) accordingly to tests results and precedent user'smanifestation of interest, and so on (interaction human-machine). Thanks to Friends-to-Friends social network, the user can be supported by a "recommended" specialist; inexchange he can share his professional or linguistic skills.
