And the eLearning Award 2018 goes to...
infoWERK in the category ‚Competency Management‘ for its project MUBIS a "Multimedia-Based Integrated and Interactive Simulation System".
We are honored to have won the prestigious eLearning AWARD 2018 which was awarded for the 8th time this year. The official award ceremony was held at the didacta trade fair for education and training. infoWERK's Product Manager Harald Strehling was very excited to receive the prize during the award ceremony at the eLearningSUMMIT@didacta2018 on 20th February.
The winning projects were already published and presented in the eLearning Journal publication “Yearbook eLearning & knowledge management”.
„This recognition of excellence from the eLearning Journal with its rigorous selection process is a real honor“, says Roland Gatt, Managing Director of infoWERK. "Winning the eLearning Award after the Worlddidac Award 2014 is again an important accolade for our organisation and further establishes our company as an innovative supplier of solutions for further education and training, especially in the aviation sector". In the given project infoWERK Medien & Technik GmbH has cooperated with AeronautX Luftfahrtschule GmbH whereas the project was also supported by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency.
The award winning product presents a new training device for pilot and technical training in aviation serving to integrate practical elements into theoretical training and therefore helping to develop necessary and required core competences. As a basis of training the "Training to competency" is thereby implemented.
The so-called ‚Multimedia-Based Integrated and interactive Simulation system (MUBIS)‘ delivers simulator data in real-time over the internet into the classroom. Therefore students are able to train practical elements already during theoretical lessons. At the same time instructors are supported in their duties by the fact that they can explain the theory more understandably and user-specifically with the help of practical implementation. The innovation of this system is the effective integration of Full Flight Simulator, Flight Training Device and the underlying Learning Management System. ICAO requirements for the implementation of ‚Scenario-Based Training‘ and ‚Evidence- Based Training (Doc.9995)‘ into initial and recurrent training are thereby fulfilled.
This eLearning award reinforces for training organisations everywhere the contribution that the award winning project MUBIS and its development partners are making to improve training systems and newest professional education within the aviation industry.
