The way we communicate what KLAB is and who can profit from it, is extremely important. I would really like you to have a close look at the KLAB Definition we included in D2.1 (what KLAB is and who the target users are) and contribute with your comments and suggestions to further improve it, in order to make it even clearer and stronger.â€œKLAB is an innovative e-learning service addressing the needs of Learning Networks Europe-wide. It does so by offering a web-based service that includes elements of structured learning (e.g. setting of learning objectives and providing support for achieving them), as well as networking, formal (coordination and decision-making) and informal communication and knowledge sharing among learners. KLAB includes the so-called KLAB Practice Guide helping Learning Networks to adapt the services to their specific needs, and a multimedia simulation (KLAB Simulation Challenge) providing them with the necessary change management and innovation competencies. The TARGET USERS of KLAB are Learning Networks (LN). LNs are inter-organizational structures aimed at promoting and supporting learning, knowledge management and networking among their member companies (mainly SMEs). LNs Europe-wide include mainly professional development networks, corporate learning networks, sector/industry-specific networks and regional networks.â€œ
Please submit your comments and suggestions (by clicking on the blue â€œCommentsâ€ below) before we produce the next version of the document, which we are planning for the end of November, so that weâ€™ll be able to integrate all of them. Also feel free to come by and see and comment each others comments.
Looking forward to a productive exchange and agreement on how to best characterize KLAB and its target users.
