Jedium Platform

Summary

We offer a platform allowing customers to build multi-user dynamic virtual environments.

Characteristics:

Intelligent Automation. All applications created using Jedium can be automatically integrated with or connected to other systems and software (reporting and analytics tools, Learning Management Systems (LMS), ERP, CRM, etc.)

Entity-based Flexibility. The platform can easily combine and create learning experience based on entities and representations of components. That allows making any types of combinations of each learning content’s property, creating complex visualizations & interactions.

Learning Paradigms Ready. Every learning asset and interaction is represented as an object ready for an analysis of any complexity. Jedium Platform powered by AI, using algorithms powered by data from the user experience (xAPI data), which allow for the application of modern learning paradigms like Connectionism, Social Constructivism, and Individual Learning Trajectories.

      
      
             

Landscape of e-learning

The market of IT products for Corporate e-learning is quite saturated. However, no one system is designed to deal with a complex VR content.

That happened before. Some eLearning products (e.g., webinars) are being used by Enterprise. However, not many companies use those products properly. Some reasons:

  • Tech integrations are costly and involve effort from employees, vendors.
  • The products are aside from learning.

If we want to get a slightly more complex training integrated with LMS, we need to develop an in-house solution. The latter becomes company's artifact.

Standards

Why does it happen? Lack of standards? Actually, there are few: SCORM, TinCan.

Why are those standards not used? Some reasons:

  • Complexity of integrations learning systems into IT infrastructure.
  • A gap between modern pedagogical methods and their realizations.
  • Traditionally, the standards describe only a low-level (training) implementation.

The “middle” level (between learning and training) is not implemented in any software product.

Learning Methods

In addition, we have emerging learning methods that appeared on the basis of implementation of old paradigms:

  • Constructionism;
  • Connectionism;
  • Social Learning.

However, no one of those techniques could be integrated “As Is” by using typical IT infrastructure "ERP-LMS." Companies can not buy an outsourcing of IT solutions and start using modern learning methods.

Products available on the market imply reorganization of IT infrastructure. That is a business critical issue!

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for reusing current IT infrastructure for a realization of learning that effectively uses:

  • Emerging technologies.
  • New learning paradigms.

We develop a set of instruments for a transformation of IT infrastructure. The new infrastructure is ready for using new learning methods.

Architecture

Our solution is based on an agent approach. The system is designed as a client-server virtual environment application, in which every object and user has a server-based representation as an independent Akka.NET agent. That provides Jedium clients an ability to almost unlimited scaling of such environment and allows clients to use a huge number of interactive objects, along with the high stability of the entire system.

The architecture effectively hides the realization of communication protocols and all details from the user and developers, giving a straightforward process of development & implementation of various features, third-party components.

By using a full-scale C#, .NET platform, developers have an ability to create their own 3D models and—which is more important—program behaviors for those models on both client and server sides. Each behavior (“virtual application”) is independent from others, and the virtual environment acts as a “user interface” to the code.

In terms of an virtual application, the system implements the OS-like behaviour (the environment consists of a number of independent applications + single API for their development). As a result for developers, the development process should be as easy as the development for every modern OS.

Teachers (non-technical academies) have their own editor application allowing them to quickly design complex scenarios by using virtual applications as components.


Key architectural feature: we implement a practical 4D engineering ontology on a software level.

Smooth Transition

We do not force companies to change anything at once. They might do that easily, step by step.

As a result, companies get:

  • Absolutely scalable solution.
  • A collaborative e-learning system which is highly flexible and responsive to every change of company knowledge base.
  • Marketplace of entities that allow creation of IT infrastructure from the ground up or infrastructure expansion by using prebuilt templates.
  • Integrations with cognitive services to enrich corporate learning processes (e.g. create individual learning trajectories) and Competency Management Systems.
  • Training ground for Artificial Intelligence (AI) agents.

Currently, we are focused on learning, but we believe that our platform could be used in a wide range of business processes because it closes the gap between social and technological knowledge.

Our goal is to make that bridge.
