TELL ME Special Session

Project Name: TELLME (Technology Enhanced Learning Livinglab for Manufacturing Environments)  http://www.tellme-ip.eu/


TELL ME is a project co-funded by the European Commission under the Seven Framework Programme inside the Objective ICT-2011. 8.1 Technology-enhanced learning (advanced solutions for fast and flexible deployment of learning opportunities at the workplace).

Main goal of the special session is to introduce the TELL ME developed system with a specific focus on the role that AR/VR have within the training on the job of Blue Collar Workers in manufacturing environment. Special attention is also devoted on wearable devices piloted and multimodal user interaction.
