To provide a testbed to showcase third–generation open standards technologies capable of spanning an end-to-end, knowledge and learning object management supply chain.

aspiration banner

Institute for Working Futures' will work with corporate clients, partnering content developers, technology engineers, instructional designers, learning providers and research partners to:

  • Move beyond the noise, hype and expenses to foster deep understanding on how the technologies and processes can value add to learning and knowledge systems.
  • Provide proof of product and market for a complete B2B learning object knowledge exchange business model (so called 3PEL, third party e-learning model).
  • Prove a fee-for-use model is possible whereby third parties can access all the e-learning technologies and associated very low per student, per course, per annum license charge.
  • Integrate workflows for production of content into IMS (packaging, sequencing and QTI) and SCORM while maintaining accessibility and mobility requirements.
  • Liberate assessment objects from being embedded within a learning management system or a learning object/ resource/activity.
  • Uncouple content (object) and data access and reporting from proprietorial LMS technologies.
  • Integrate reporting of learning and knowledge acquisition across LMS and enterprise applications.
  • Test technology and authenticate use of podcasting for educational purposes (especially with regards use in mobile and accessible learning).
  • Automate the production, conversion and publishing of content from desktops to SCORM, QTI and thence to web or any compliant learning management.
  • Integrate content packaging, branding, labelling and recognition (qualifications) processes under appropriate quality and compliance regimes (IMS, VETADATA, SCORM and Human Capital vocabularies, ISO, AQTF and University).
  • Conduct, report and publish all projects through rigorous university-based processes (Unitas Knowledge Centre).
  • Provoke curiosity insight and acumen sufficient to accelerate enterprise adoption.
