item at LEARNTEC 2020
E-learning is an efficient way to impart specialist expertise to users around the world – item Industrietechnik GmbH is presenting its item Academy learning platform at LEARNTEC in Karlsruhe from 28 to 30 January 2020. The market leader in building kit systems for industrial applications is a guest of ILIAS e.V., on whose Learning Management System (LMS) of the same name the item Academy is based. In the “Meet the User” forum at Stand A30 (Hall 1), item will give interested parties the chance to experience the learning opportunities first hand and discover the high quality of the content.
The LEARNTEC international trade fair showcases the latest e-learning solutions for use in companies and educational facilities. As part of this, item is presenting its own learning platform, the item Academy, as a practical example of the ILIAS software in action.
ILIAS is open-source software used to create learning and teaching materials and encourage collaboration and communication between teachers and learners. item uses this solution, too, to demonstrate the functionality and potential uses and applications of the item building kit systems. “We would like to offer our customers, partners and employees around the world open access to content that provides the best possible support for selecting and assembling our products,” explains Joel Hesse, head of the technical training team at item. “Over the last few years, ILIAS has evolved into a product that represents a real alternative for commercial users.”
In the item Academy, users can acquire specialist expertise in short learning sequences, while organising their time flexibly and saving travel costs. item offers these free web-based training courses in the fields of mechanical engineering, work bench design, automation and lean production. Visitors to LEARNTEC will have the chance to try out the new “practical tip” feature, which has content for even experienced users of the item building kit systems.
