ALMANAC is a multimodal software framework designed to provide learners with an engaging and intuitive learning experience incorporating a rich blend of multimedia including textual content, images, videos and animations. ALMANAC provides the learner with access to tailored learning experiences that are dynamically generated based on the learner’s immediate learning needs. The aim of ALMANAC is to generate learning experiences that engage the learner and encourage them to explore topics while at the same time having the information they need at their fingertips when they need it.
Employees need access to on-demand, point-of-need learning using knowledge resources in the organisation and outside approved open resources on the internet. Almanac delivers personalised articles as a mash-up of internal (organisational) content and curated open source content.
Students need access to on-demand, bite-sized learning which ideally uses proprietary learning content and curated open content to supplement and enhance the learning affordances of educational publishers’ content and to ensure learner engagement. From the educational publisher’s perspective, Almanac provides opportunities to extract value from the re-use of legacy materials.
