29th September 2005: EduXchange @ ICL Conference 

On Friday September 29th 2005, Grégoire Besnier presented the mission of EduXchange at the ICL conference in Villach, Austria, in a session of 50 people composed by academic professors and assistants, professionals of eLearning and SMEs. The session focus was on "Increasing the Openness of Universities in Lifelong Learning: Academic Training Needs in European SMEs ".

At the difference of the EDEN conference in Helsinki, the academic public showed a strong engagement and a certain experience in developing educational contents for corporations and SMEs, being aware of the necessity to provide shorter and more focused modules of learning for the economic world than the ones provided for students on campus. This positioning of European universities as educational providers for knowledge workers and industry partners gives new operational perspectives for an U2C brokerage platform.

Additionally, and this was the second key message of the ICL conference for EduXchange, eLearning is not only the production of educational contents in a rich media environment, but more and more an opportunity of developing new ways of learning, especially in collaborative learning, wikis and social softwares. These new forms of learning offers from innovative universities and professors should be taken into account for the EduXchange positioning. Following the presentation in Villach, Professor Wim Ween, from the Delf University of Technology, proposed to involve the EducaNext brokerage platform and EduXchange as observatory in a project on Collaborative Learning that he will conduct, with the support of IBM, for the whole personal of Philips worldwide. This great opportunity will help Eduxchange to gain competence in these new forms of Learning involving a broker.
