The proposal X5gon stands for easily implemented freely available innovative technology elements converging currently scattered Open Educational Resources (OER) available in various modalities across Europe and the globe. X5gon combines content understanding, user modelling quality assurance methods and tools to boost a homogenous network of (OER) sites and provides users (teachers, learners) with a common learning experience. X5gon deploys open technologies for recommendation, learning analytics and learning personalisation services that works across various OER sites, independent of languages, modalities, scientific domains, and socio-cultural contexts. It develops services OER media convergence including full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, videos, tests, software, related events, tools, materials, techniques used to support access to knowledge.
Fivefold solutions are offered to OER sites:
• Cross-modal: technologies for multimodal content understanding;
• Cross-site: technologies to transparently accompany and analyse users across sites;
• Cross-domain: technologies for cross domain content analytics;
• Cross-language: technologies for cross lingual content recommendation;
• Cross-cultural: technologies for cross cultural learning personalisation.
X5gon collects and index OER resources, track data of users progress and feed an analytics engine driven by state-of-the-art machine learning, improve recommendations via user understanding and match with knowledge resources of all types.
NEWS ABOUT THE PROJECT
X5gon a finalist of the 2019 UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize
The Jury of the Prize has shortlisted X5gon among the top 10 out of 113 nominations. The nomination is a recognition of the project’s high quality and innovative use of Artificial Intelligence in education.
THE INNOVATIVE IT SPRINT HACKATHON WAS A SUCCESS
On January 23rd and 24th, 2020 more than 80 participants were searching for state-of-the-art digital solutions for developing new products based on X5gon platform services. The hackaton that took place at the Pošta Slovenije in Maribor was one of the largest in Slovenia.
X5gon Platform to Be Used in the Innovative IT Sprint
X5gon will be involved in an Innovative IT Sprint event, a two-day event organized by Pošta Slovenije on January 23rd and 24th, 2020, where technology enthusiasts and innovative individuals will look for new technological solutions for advanced learning and paperless business with the help of modern technologies.
