MACE project

The MACE project website is online as a first version:

The MACE project sets out to transform the ways of e-learning about architecture in Europe. It will integrate vast amounts of content from diverse repositories created in several large previous projects as well as from existing architectural design communities. MACE will provide a framework for community based services such as finding, acquiring, using and discussing about e-learning contents that were previously reachable only to small user groups. […] The project will develop and use several types of metadata for tagging contents: traditional content metadata and ontologies, context metadata, competence metadata and learning process metadata, usage related metadata and metadata acquired through social interaction, e.g. recommendations by peer users or blog entries.

I am engaged on the project as a part-time researcher here at FHP. A terrific chance to get some really good interfaces going, especially since there is a lot of data, even more metadata and a powerful consortium involved. I am looking forward to it!
