Call for Papers: IWL-LOKMOL 2008

January 31st, 2008 by Martin

We had very inspiring and successful LOKMOL (Learner Oriented Knowledge Management & KM-Oriented E-Learning) workshops in 2005 , 2006 and 2007. This year, we decided to start a joint initiative with the IWL Special Track of the IKNOW conference.

I’m especially interested in how we can support individuals in organizations without just focusing on organization and business goals. I think the main point is always to empower people and encourage them to learn, participate and collaborate!

Looking very much forward to your submissions!!!

ALOE in Graz and Crete

September 3rd, 2007 by Martin

Busy times. Tomorrow I’ll fly to Graz for the I-KNOW ‘07. I’ll give a talk on Wednesday at 2pm about “Sharing Digital Resources and Metadata for Open and Flexible Knowledge Management Systems”, presenting some of the work that my colleague Rafael Schirru and me did in the last months in the ALOE project.

Here’s the abstract:

This paper discusses the requirements of a framework for sharing digital resources and metadata to meet the needs of open, flexible Knowledge Management solutions. The changing nature of the Web and its users as observed in recent years clearly establishes the need for new approaches and technologies to fully exploit the potential for working with existing digital resources. Formal metadata about the resources can be combined with information created in lightweight and user-centric approaches in order to significantly enhance resource descriptions and enable more efficient access to existing knowledge. The ALOE system, currently in development at DFKI, is one such solution and it is used here as the basis for a sample realization of an appropriate framework.

On Friday, I’ll also present some of this work in the Pro-LC Workshop “Process-Oriented Learning and Knowledge Work”, with a focus on “Sharing Learning Resources and Metadata”.

And one week later, I’ll present a poster about ALOE during EC-TEL 2007 in Crete, where Martin Wolpers, Eric Ras and me will also organize LOKMOL 2007 on Tuesday, September 18th.
