    1. 1. The Architecture of the VESTA-GIS Training Framework Anders Östman University of Gävle, Sweden [email_address]
    2. 2. Training Framework <ul><li>Aims to collect, organize and deliver vocational training content about </li></ul><ul><ul><li>GIS technology and tools </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Applications within different sectors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Main components </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An e-learning platform for hosting training curses </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Training catalogue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Course builder </li></ul></ul>
    3. 4. Training Catalogue <ul><li>Metadata about courses and training packages stored in a database </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Basic information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Course title, Language, Provider, Duration, Level, Delivery format, Keywords </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other searchable information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Course type, cost, certificate, intended audience </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Course details </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Location, didactic approach, fee, overview, training units, prerequisites etc </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Based on MySQL DBMS (open source) </li></ul><ul><li>Multilingual support </li></ul>
    4. 5. Use cases for catalogue services <ul><li>A potential trainee wants to find information about a course and how to enrol </li></ul><ul><li>A course provider enters metadata </li></ul><ul><li>A course provider assembles courses into a training package (training package builder) </li></ul><ul><li>Updating and cleaning by the database administrator </li></ul>
    5. 6. Training Package Builder <ul><li>Build customised learning paths (training packages) </li></ul><ul><li>Based on the requirements of a specific person or organisation </li></ul><ul><li>Requires metadata with course content, levels, prerequisites etc. </li></ul>
