First conference a success! (5-12-2018)
The EKFI-project has started with a first kick off conference in the beginning of December 2018 in Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands.
The aim of the EKFI project is to create an Exchange platform, to facilitate innovative learning/research material, to map the competence (user) needs and match these with existing learning/research module(s) on the web based platform. The Exchange platform can be applied for the project target groups: VET and HE institutes, SMEs, sector organizations, others in the Cultural & Creative Industries (CCI).
The CCI is evolving further with structural changes. The subsectors: media, visual communication, print & publishing, arts, design, advertising, gaming, film/photography, internet and (up to a certain degree) packaging, are changing rapidly and the educational material changes accordingly.
The Exchange platform can be applied for the project target groups: VET and HEs, SMEs, sector organizations, others in the CCI. It will operate as a set of ICT-applications (IO’s): a database of existing learning/research material (from various sources) will be created by uploading this material to an platform(O1). The uploading will be supported by the Intake application(O2) where the learning/research material will be described and meet educational standards/formats in order to pass the entrance requirements. The Search robot(O4) makes it possible for the user to map the competence needs and match the needs with learning/research module(s). The download of the material uses the Barter system purchase application(O3). It is a system of exchange where goods are directly exchanged for other goods without using money, as a medium of exchange.
