Do you know where your (e-Learning) content is? How it’s used and reused (both in formal training and other uses)? Who is using it, where, when? How much you have? What your users think about how they get it and use it? In this presentation we will explore how (e-Learning) content and knowledge is used and managed, along with a collection of business drivers and processes needed to support (learning) content management. We will present a collection of technical solution components to address some of the problems of content management, and illustrate how these can be combined using a business driven approach to develop a service-oriented model for content distribution, discovery, delivery and management. We will present an overview of a model for content management within a training infrastructure, and illustrate how a comprehensive collection of integrated tools and services can simplify user interactions within a content management infrastructure.
