"Technoloy Enhanced Learning - European Requirements, Certification and Testing (TELCERT)"  is a research project dealing with the practical use of open standards and specifications in e-learning products and services.

 telcert_und_haken_240x120.png Software tools are used to support the adaptation of the standards to local specifics through profiles (application profiles) and the creation of teaching materials in line with the profiles. An independent test system ensures that the content is checked for compatibility with the profiles.

The IWM is involved in the development of the software tools, in the provision of sample content and in the development of sample adaptations for the German university sector.
In Koblenz the following were developed

the tool "SchemaProf" for profiling XML specifications and
the tool "DataGen" which is used to generate test data.
The IWM is also involved in the development of guidelines for the adaptation of open e-learning specifications.

The TELCERT project is funded by the European Union in the 6th Framework Programme.
