Abstract

In order to support work-integrated learning scenarios task- and competency-aware knowledge services are needed. In this paper we introduce three key knowledge services of the APOSDLE system and illustrate how they interact. The context determination daemon observes user interactions and infers the current work task of the user. The user profile service uses the identified work tasks to determine the competences of the user. And finally, the associative retrieval service utilizes both the current work task and the inferred competences to identify relevant (learning) content. All of these knowledge services improve through user feedback.
