discussing how new generation learning content management solutions (LCMS),
based on XML templates, reusable learning objects and interoperability,
could cut content production costs while improving the reusability and
personalisation of learning content. This should help users to migrate
from classroom-led to web based training and beyond, into the
innovative features of field-based learner support offered by new
mobile learning solutions.
During his presentation, Turpin will outline the learn eXact LCMS
Suite, Europe's leading LCMS infrastructure, which is currently
deployed in more than 100 world leading pharmaceutical, telecoms and
banking industry training departments.
This infrastructure is now also available with mobile learning and
wearable training plug-ins, allowing the distribution of mobile content
on Blackberry mailers, Windows Mobile Computers, Symbian Smartphones
and Xybernaut Wearable Computers with Wi-Fi and RFID tags based
location detection. According to Turpin, this allows content to reach
learners wherever they need support and on whatever device they want to

materials in any format from the printed word to e-learning programs
for mobile devices including PDAs, Blackberrys and even wearable
"In many respects Giunti Labs are different from their competitors,"

populated by American companies. In addition, they do not just adhere
to standards but write and develop them - and they are the only
learning management system producer in the world that has a 510 year
