My previous posting for this blog (with reference to the Learning Layers project) dealt with the issue “Lessons from prior projects”. I drew attention to several video interviews that I had prepared for another European cooperation project (Coop-PBL in VET). My colleagues in the learning Layers project might consider that the material might be a bit remote to the ongoing project and to the current working issues – maybe, maybe not.
With this post I want to draw attention to the work of an immediate predecessor of the Learning Layers project as regards the work with the German construction sector. The German project Vila-b (Virtual learning in construction work) explored the usability of mobile devices in the context of continuing training for construction workers. The video interviews with researcher Sven Schulte (ITB) make transparent the project concept and users’ acceptance of new media.
In the first video Sven about the approach of Vila-b, of the measures to ensure user engagement and of the conclusions, how to make such projects relevant for users.
With these videos I hope to bring the lessons from prior activities closer to our ongoing discussions on current challenges and tasks.
