WEKIT at DG CONNECT meeting among Horizon 2020 projects on digital learning

On March 27, 2017, representatives of 30 top European Union projects in the field of Digital Learning (managed by the unit G3 ‘Learning, Multilingualism & Accessibility’ in DG CONNECT) met in Luxembourg on invitation of the European Commission in order to take stock of achievements, exchange, and increase coherence. Dr. Fridolin Wild participated in his role as scientific director of the WEKIT project.

D2.2 Learning Experience Content Model (draft)

This deliverable proposes a draft specification for the WEKIT content model for learning experiences. The proposed content model consists of an activity modelling language and a workplace modelling language, both together able to express how users of the WEKIT.one AR soft- and wearable hardware solution can interact with media and the environment in pursuit of developing new (or upgrading existing) knowledge, skills, and other abilities.

D2.1 Functional and modular architecture

This deliverable reports on the software architecture for realising a modular and distributed system for capturing and re-enacting experience. The architecture serves mainly two purposes: building a shared understanding amongst the contributors and guiding the further development by breaking down complexity, thus allowing for distribution of work. Additionally, the structure and its compartmentalisation can be re-used to inform other projects in the context of WEKIT exploitation and beyond.

D3.3 Software Prototype with Sensor Fusion API Specification and Usage Description

This deliverable reports on the components of the first functional prototype of the WEKIT sensor fusion API and the experiences made with it. The development of these components is based on previous work on the WEKIT framework and methodology, requirements and scenarios, as well as technological selections and limitations. The deliverable specifies the key interfaces between the software component and the hardware, the backend infrastructure, and the front-end application modules.

D3.2 Hardware prototype with component specification and usage description

In this deliverable we present the first version of the experience capturing hardware prototype design and API architecture, following on from D3.1 and the final selection of sensors. This deliverable involved acquiring, testing and integrating the various off-the-shelf sensors and developing a hardware/software design to connect the various devices and sensors into a single platform. This also involved solving problems around how we would manage the additional computing power, storage and wireless streaming capabilities required for this project.

D7.2 Outreach & Dissemination Report 1

In this first iteration of the Outreach and Dissemination Report – D7.2, we report on initial efforts and outcomes in dissemination and stakeholder outreach for the first year of the project. We thereby adhere to the planned structure of the original dissemination plan in D7.1. As planned for this early phase, we do not yet have shareable and tangible project results, but there is much external interest in our framework and vision; the consortium has not only reached but exceeded its target measures for five milestones (relevant stakeholders identified, community portal and social media online, community event planned, prepared, and organized, first stage of 30 members on community portal).

D6.3 Training Scenario and Evaluation Plan for Space

This deliverable describes the WEKIT evaluation case for Space. The space domain is a very complex and challenging environment where the range of pre-flight and in-flight activities that can benefit from the innovative and powerful forms of AR-based and knowledge-intensive training that WEKIT is aiming to develop, verify and make available to advanced industries across Europe.
