Generic Content Integration allows integrating existing knowledge catalogues and eLearning resources. The ability to leverage existing content is a critical component of eLearning. Reusing existing content not only accelerates these eLearning initiatives, but also improves overall quality.
The benefit is to effectively repurpose and target content, ending the costly cycle of recreating content for a particular need, audience, or distribution device, and to protect investments in already existing eLearning objects. For the pilot usage the content of some 20.000 European scientific and professional magazines out of the Press-Catalogue (www.pressekatalog.de) is integrated.
