Giunti Labs’ award-winning learning content management system (LCMS) which is being used successfully in the public sector, as well as in the telecoms, healthcare, banking and finance industries, awaits visitors to the Giunti Labs’ stand (number 34) at this year’s Learning Technologies exhibition, at London’s Olympia, on 31st January and 1st February 2007.

Giunti Labs’ philosophy and products will also be in evidence in a formal presentation being made in the exhibition presentation area. Angus Turpin, manager for Giunti Labs in the UK and Eire, will be discussing how new generation LCMSs, based on XML templates, reusable learning objects and interoperability, cut content production costs while improving the reusability and personalisation of learning content.

This LCMS 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. This allows content to reach learners wherever they need support and on whatever device they want to use.

So Giunti Labs’ LCMS solution can now deliver learning materials in any format from the printed word to e-learning programs for mobile devices and even wearable headset devices – and these learning materials are fully trackable.

In addition, at the conference which accompanies the Learning Technologies exhibition, Jon Turner, project manager of the Radiology – Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) Project, winner of a coveted ‘gold’ at last November’s E-learning Age Awards and which is using Giunti Labs’ LCMS in helping to reduce radiology based diagnosis time in the National Health Service (NHS), will be explaining how to:
• Build a design process around subject matter experts (SMEs)
• Deal effectively with issues including motivation, risk and reward
• Ensure quality with the expert review process
• Use tools to capture and share expertise

"Not only is the market for LCMS and related technologies growing appreciably throughout Europe, including the UK but we are seeing our global customer base increase at an even faster rate," Turpin revealed. "Having developed strong research and development skills which have led to our learn eXact® suite of products becoming the leading LCMS made in Europe, we are now expanding our sales and marketing activities to take our high quality products to an even wider audience."
