The TELMap project has interviewed major TEL projects for a rich picture of the advances in Technology Enhanced Learning. As former coordinator, I had the pleasure and challenge to present a brief summary of what MATURE has achieved.
TELMap has compiled an overview as an ebook (currently only iBooks, but other formats are promised): http://bit.ly/tel-advances
Here is the chapter on MATURE.
MATURE has been recently covered by the International Innovation magazine.
The Knowledge Maturing Model Landscape has already proven to be a valuable tool for providing advice to organizations interested in improving their knowledge processes and the supporting tool infrastructure. It helps analyzing and understanding problems and developing solutions. And in contrast to most consulting methodologies, it is also grounded on a sound and empirically as well as practically validated concept. A group of experienced individuals from the MATURE consortium and its Associate Partner Network has formed a European consulting network in recent months. It provides its tailored services to all kinds of organizations, and each of the consultants brings in their own special expertise in a certain business sector (e.g., healthcare, financial services, IT services) and country (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom).
The event took place for the first time and has immediately attracted almost 200 participants and thus grown up to a major event. The knowledge management days were organized by the magazine „Wissensmanagement. Magazin für Führungskräfte“ and the Danube University Krems. Keynote Speaker and knowledge managers from academia and industries, amongst others Ronald Maier (University of Innsbruck, Department of Information Systems ) shared their experiences.
