iTV broadcasting concept with standards for the production of iTV
Guidelines for the trainer
Development of media training contents, operation sequence, didactic and methodical procedure.
Conceptional design of broadcasting modules as well as lectures and publications, which will support the distribution of the results.
Beneficiary of the project results will be the employees of the SMEs in the whole of Europe (the results will be comprehensive for all branches).
These are employees of SMEs for the technical area, who need basic and specialised knowledge in the field of automotive industry and its component suppliers, metal and electric, electronic, CAD-,CAM-,CAN control, service and maintenance of machine tools, repair etc.
However, the iTV learning platform can also be used as support for basic education, training of instructor and for in-house trainings in these areas. In a second step the target group of employees working in the administration of SMEs will join in. iTV broadcasting modules will advert to areas of personal working technics, such as communication and comprehensibility, presentation skills techniques, conflict management etc.
The provider of professional training, qualification measures, school and teaching material publisher will not only be sensitised for this media, but can also take care of the results being implemented effectively with the user. We will find these provider within the HR departments of companies, provider of professional training, chambers as well as e-learning provider.
This target group is also acting as multiplier within the SMEs and is significantly responsible for the application of this learning platform in the SME. Therefore it is planned to produce iTV programmes which provide information for this group in regards to funtionality of the learning platform, possibilities, certification etc.
Subject teacher at vocational schools, operational instructor, independent trainer, instructor of the instructor, specialists of individual training subjects, tutors etc. shall be informed in the iTV programmes about which didactiv-methodical general conditions, possibilities, learning targets and preparation and postprocessing such a programm represent and how they themselves can participate with their own tuition.
The report of learning requirements at the working place will give information about which topics for web based learning will be of interest in the countries and to which target groups this could appeal. In doing this especially the synergy effects should be determined. For example a proposal for rudiment knowledge could absolutely be of interest to different branches (i.e. a series of about "International Project Management") The partner within the countries have a profitability report at hand with a recommendation for the contents of the broadcasting modules in the countries. The information material for SMEs will be issued, translated and send out, a information event for SMEs will be carried out and a minimum of 5 SMEs in each country will get consultation. A video will be produced, which can be used as a tool for information and consultancy with the firms who are technically not able to receive the iTV broadcast. The catalogue of topics for the iTV programmes is the binding broadcasting and production plan for Phase 5 "Advancement, Testing and Evaluation of the broadcasting modules".
At this stage times of broadcasting, countries, languages, technical equipment and target groups will be appointed.
A catalogue of topics will be at hand, which will be needed by the user of the respective member state for a certain target group. It will be originated which broadcasting module will be suggested on whose demand. The iTV manual will include a recommentation of implementation of relevant multicultural factors, i.e. test layout, visualisation and communication. A check list will be available for comprehension critical points. The iTV manual also includes a guideline for the trainer.
Content of the trainer guideline shall be the didactic methodical approach to iTV as well as information and recommendation for the conception of iTV broadcasting modules. The media training for the trainer will test the aspects during the practical experience. Qualification via the medium of iTV demands advanced competence in the area of methodic of the instructor, trainer and facilitator.
Aspects like visualisation, animated graphics, film sequences, handling of technique and movement in front of the camera will be developed, tested and listed in an assistance for the instructor.
At the end of the project this will be available in each country as per their learning culture.
The iTV broadcasting concept will be a didactiv-methodical assistance for all of those who write and implement the training concepts: trainer, people responsible for education, tutors etc.
The iTV broadcasting concept will include recommendations for the implementation in the countries in respect of learning culture, multilingualism, visualisation, comprehension etc.
It will be gathered, which new educational approaches have to be considered in this iTV project to be sufficiently learning oriented. A choice of different topics will be made for the production of the iTV broadcasting modules and will be left for disposition as demo version.The production of education material is not the foreground, but especially the evaluation of the learning material and the learning efficiency by the use of SME employees.
Different evaluation reports are provided to the project. On the one hand the evaluation refers to the learning acceptance and the entrance of KMU to iTV. Aspects such as participation quota, learning efficiency, comprehensability, topic selection are evaluated by the partner if the FH and universities involved. Likewise the overall project and the working progress of the partner are separately evaluated and recommendations for the quality standards of accomplished e-learning projects are given.
A functioning partner network in the sense of the exchange over the
new iTV learning platform is a substantial result of this project. Only over the transnational exchange and the realizations from the work with the KMU in the different regions the transnational character of this project will shape.
The change regarding new e-learning-platforms can develop only over the exchange of competence and experiences. This to evaluate and for the didactical-methodical helps make usable is a substantial result. The spreading of results, which were sufficiently validated,
can guarantee the lastingness of the project activity. The entrance to iTV is not cost-intensive, the supply of the technology and the content was sufficiently evaluated, many possibilities
of the acceptance of the KMU to iTV was examined. The interest, to publish the results of the project is high. A goal, which goes beyond the course of the project, is to tie up numerous KMU in iTV - less for commercial reasons, but because for reasons of an optimal qualification in a high-complex manufacturing process in the whole of Europe under comparable quality standards.
