Technologies
Personalised Learning: Innovative personalisation technologies adaptively retrieve content
appropriate to the knowledge level of the student
Semantic Search: Semantic search retrieves relevant resources by understanding the student’s intent and the contextual meaning of their search terms
Social Search: Social search leverages the past learning experiences of the community to rank future search results
Content Composition: Constructs a coherent learning episode from relevant resources personalised to the immediate needs of the student.

Social Network Analysis

A novel web-based application that provides meaningful learning analytics into how knowledge is acquired and shared within informal and collaborative learning environments. The application identifies and visualises how knowledge is disseminated, highlighting key influencers and enablers.

Innovative Technologies
• Data Capture: Leverages an organisation’s existing communication channels, e.g. instant messaging, to construct a social network between the members
• Social Network Analysis: Analyses how the network members interact to identify key influencers and their impact on the knowledge network
• Visualisation Framework: Provides an intuitive visualisation of the organisation’s knowledge network
The Opportunity

Technologies deployed in the application can be licensed individually or as a suite of technologies that can be integrated with other learning and talent management platforms as a complete set.
