Design and Architecture of Distance-Learning Frameworks for Generating Components of Webbased Training Tools with Integrated Recommender System- and Knowledge Management Services
Harald Kisch1 & Rainer Kelch2
Abstract: A framework able to generate training tools seems to be far away from realization, but the following introduction should take a short dive into the vision. Each generated training tool has components for course creation, knowledge suggestion and knowledge management. Usually knowledge is taught in classroom instruction, but knowledge of scientific methodology with webbased training tools can offer much more possibilities for learning. The approach to learn webbased over wide distances between user and trainer is widespread known, but training tools with suggestions for missing knowledge in case of wrong answers have not yet been considered in research. The goal of this approach is to generate sophisticated E-Learning tools, in which everyone is able to learn how to develop resp. to customize complex SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Systems.
Key words: framework, webbased training, distance learning, E-learning tools, WBT, CBT,KMS, AI, SAP, ERP,Web 2.0, E-Learning, Blended Learning, Recommender Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Management System, Enterprise Resource Planning, Architecture.
1 Has studied computer science at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, Germany. After his graduation he worked almost 7 years in the industry as software developer. After 5 years as chief software developer at Cost Xpert AG, a global player in IT-Project Estimation, he decided to go back to university for research. The main field in his research as web technology expert is the combination of E-Learning, Data Mining and Knowledge Management for education. In his spare time he likes to go swimming, mountain hiking and jogging.
