GTN – global training network gmbh
Role in the project:
GTN is a software development-company that has done quite some work for the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education. As a company specialized in OpenSource-products GTN has developed several extensions for the Moodle-platform which are used internationally and published at moodle.org – a key focus is on the management and distribution of educational standards (www.edustandards.org). GTN has developed a Moodle-based block for the documentation of educational outcomes as well as an eportfolio-module for Moodle – see www.exabis.at for further products. Another focus of GTN is the development of web applications and apps for mobile phones. Different frameworks are used to create apps ranging from native and hybrid versions for iOS as well as Android to HTML5-based systems using jquery for Mobiles and the phonegap-framework.
GTN focuses on the implementation of elearning-systems and scenarios in organizations. The integration of pedagogical concepts into elearning-distribution is a major issue. The basic concept is called ecool – see www.cooltrainers.at
GTN is the lead-programming company for this project. Besides the technical implementation of the app the results of work of other project partners (especially pedagogical issues and other expertise) will play a very important role in the design-concept.
Andreas Riepl is advisor to the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and has developed a range of different software-products emphasizing on eportfolio work and competency-based education. He holds a University degree in Social Sciences.
