An example of the interaction between the user and the world of learning systems (see also the picture of the application scenario):
- The user, Ms Heike Lernmuster, would like to receive further training on data protection and the DSGVO.
- Ms Lernmuster logs on to the CLM portal EPHESOS once with her well-known corporate account.
- First the basics are taught in a classical e-learning tool, which is available in an already existing LMS, e.g. ILIAS.
- The consolidation of e.g. process sequences is done with the help of a serious game.
- Using an e-assessment tool (e.g. in Moodle), Ms Lernnmuster can check her level of knowledge at any time, or she can follow the learning recommendations of adaptive recommendation systems if necessary.
- By tracking user actions, certification systems can certify Ms Lernnmuster's successful completion.
- Curator tool for efficient content management and dynamic linking of learning content from different learning systems
- Adaptive learning systems by creating / selecting / providing learning units from different courses in real time (at runtime).
- You can see the CLM in action at LEARNTEC 2020 at the Fraunhofer joint stand.
Fraunhofer CLM is a joint development of the Fraunhofer Institutes Academy, FIT, FOKUS, IML, IOSB and Ziemann.IT Software.
Integration of native Windows applications
The central challenge in connecting CLM and digital educational games such as LostEarth (LE) is the technical integration (coupling) of web-based applications (CLM, EPHESOS) and native Microsoft Windows applications (LostEarth). While LostEarth is an MS Windows .EXE application for technical reasons, CLM with the portal EPHESOS is a web-based browser application.
- CLM and connected systems (e.g. EPHESOS Portal) run in a web browser using client-server architecture
- The game LostEarth runs on a virtual machine (at the Fraunhofer IOSB) and can be accessed as a so-called RemoteApp via the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)
- A special LTI-Metadata-Middleware takes over the coupling between Web and MS Windows World
