More eLearning solutions than ever at upcoming CeBIT 2009 Hannover

12.11.2008: More eLearning solutions than ever at upcoming CeBIT 2009 Hannover

CeBIT 2009, 3 to 8 March -Clicking your way to knowledge: eLearning continues its forward march

* Rolf Schmidt-Holtz, CEO of Sony BMG, to open Learning & Knowledge Solutions Forum in Hall 6

* eLearning Day and presentation of eureleA Award on 6 March

When employees take a break to stand before a touchscreen and follow the instructions on it; when managers use their laptop or Blackberries to learn more about the latest management trends; when project members set up a joint wiki to share their experiences and information; when students come together in virtual study groups - they all have one thing in common, i.e. they are all practicing eLearning. Learning by clicking a mouse is becoming an increasingly pervasive phenomenon, revealing a great potential for enterprises.

Visitors to CeBIT 2009 - running from 3 to 8 March in Hannover, Germany - can find out everything they need to know about the diverse range of applications in this field. Hall 6 will feature presentations by all the leading providers of digital learning and knowledge management solutions.

And the associated Learning & Knowledge Solutions Forum will feature reports by experts on implementing eLearning programs at corporations, including subtopics like motivation, compliance, certification and serious games, not to mention on eGovernment and knowledge-management technologies used to optimize knowledge-intensive processes which continue to converge with eLearning. The Learning & Knowledge Solutions Forum will be kicked off by Rolf Schmidt-Holtz, CEO of Sony BMG Music Entertainment.

Sponsored by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Internal Affairs and Sports, "eLearning Day" on 6 March 2009 will be integrated for the first time into the Learning & Knowledge Solutions Forum at CeBIT. Another event taking place on 6 March involves the presentation of the European eLearning Award eureleA, one of the industry's best-known prizes, during CeBIT.

The extensive program of forums will be rounded out by a "Campus Track", staged by universities, where visitors can see how eLearning is currently being deployed in research and education.

"The success of our debut event at CeBIT 2008 demonstrated to us the extreme relevance of eLearning to today's information society," explained Sven-Michael Prüser, Senior Vice President for CeBIT. "More than 22,000 visitors made the extra trip to CeBIT to see the latest solutions for digital learning and teaching. This is why we have decided to further expand this sector at CeBIT 2009", he concluded.

Although still a young industry, eLearning has already emerged as one of the key future markets. This growing market - with sales of around 167 million euros in 2007 in Germany alone, up 15 percent year on year - is divided up not only among conventional education, IT and media companies which have added eLearning to their traditional offerings.

It is numerous startups, above all, who are benefiting from the positive trend, serving either as all-round providers or as specialists in one of the numerous eLearning business fields. This includes the production of digital learning content, sales and rental services for eLearning and knowledge management tools (including content and software adaptation to specific client needs), business consulting on the selection and implementation of new eLearning solutions and the staging of eLearning courses.

A new generation of "eLearners" has grown up with the interactive Web 2.0 and is sure to accelerate growth and spawn new trends in this sector. This includes so-called "serious games", with which complex scenarios can be simulated and played out.

These can serve as a valuable tool for conveying information the fun way in the sphere of education and continuing education. Featuring 3D landscapes, they can be used for example to prepare managers for trips abroad or to train employees in virtual role-playing to conduct professional sales talks.

But eLearning is also becoming more important in areas where employees do not even work at a PC: Sales staff at discount chains and department stores, for example, can be trained using eLearning, as can assembly line workers.
