IntraCom has conducted an in-depth research and analysis of the technologies that can be used for the development of the SEILING eTraining platform. Although this result was not foreseen in the proposal of the project, the consortium and more specifically the technical partners decided that such a report was necessary in order to define the technological framework based on which the SEILING platform will be developed. Given the fact that most of the resources for this project are allocated into technical work and for ensuring speed and high quality in the development of the system the consortium felt that this extra result was warranted. The work involved research and analysis in 3 major technology categories. The first category was about the selection of a Learning Content Management System to be included in our platform for hosting our developed training material as well as the training materials to be uploaded by other trainers. The second category was about the selection of a gaming engine that will be used for transforming our training material (scenarios) into animations/games. The third category included research about the selection of a programming platform that will be used for the development of the rest of the functionality of the platform such as the supporting applications (forum, chat). The report includes listing of specifications and features for each technology along with a detailed analysis of pros and cons for each technology. The integration capabilities of each technology were also carefully considered. The report wraps up by recommending the technologies that shall be used for the development of the SEILING platform.
More details for this result can be found in the associated Report.

Result As already noted this is a new result not foreseen at the proposal phase of this project. However, the conclusions of this result are very important for the successful outcome of this project. The investigation allowed the technical partners of the consortium to define the technological framework on which the development of the platform will be based. Those results are fed into the architectural synthesis and design Result (Result No. 5) for providing a precise definition of the technologies required to build the platform. This result also safeguarded the consortium from following a wrong path in the chosen technologies with the result of delaying the completion of the project and/or exceeding the allowable budgets.
