LearningMate joins ng Connect Program to Drive Development of e-Learning Solutions for LTE and Emerging 4G Broadband Networks

Apr 02, 2009 ( via COMTEX) -- LearningMate is working with ng Connect member companies to research and develop next generation multi-screen learning solutions. These solutions will bring together learner management systems, rich media delivery platforms, community learning models, learning content management systems and advanced assessment systems into a common learning framework for compelling, 'always on, everywhere' learning experiences.

"The promise of ultra high bandwidth everywhere is a powerful catalyst of change in the learning industry. Media rich, collaborative community learning experiences become a reality everywhere across any screen on any connected device," said Mohit Bhargava, LearningMate's President, "Working together the ng Connect membership can bring cutting edge rich media content, dynamic learning models and engaging learning experiences to the market that are based on continuous engagement rather than intermittent intervention. This is a big step forward towards transforming managed learning from an intervention-based model to a life long continuous experience integrated into your life." Working with ng Connect Program members Words & Numbers and Alcatel-Lucent, LearningMate collaborated on the development of a new Proof of Concept demonstration for the International CTIA Wireless tradeshow showing a two way audio and visual teaching experience which illustrates the potential for wireless broadband technology to support fast, 'anytime, anywhere' learning experiences. The demonstration integrates the Alcatel-Lucent Omnitouch My Teamwork Conference and Collaboration Tool, LearningMate's QuAD assessment portal and LMS Interoperability Framework (LIF) as well as learning content from Words & Numbers.
