    Research output: Book/ReportDeliverable


    The document reports on the status of the WEKIT framework. Building up on the methodologies described in D1.3, it outlines the work done and progress made so far in the Task 1.3. The WEKITframework was drafted to guide and support the development and implementation of the project. Itaims to support the transition of the trainers from the traditional training platform to the WEKITapproach.The framework leverages on the vast knowledge and experience an expert possess. The frameworkaims to make the experts knowledge and experience available to the trainees by capturing the expertperformance. The framework was built by performing an extensive literature review, expertinterviews and through active participation of the WEKIT community and stakeholders. Experts thatclosely collaborated in the WEKIT project were from three completely different domains namely,Aeronautics engineering, Medical Imaging and Astronaut training. An overarching goal of theframework was to be domain independent and abstract, such that it does not rely heavily on domainrelated expertise.The framework is built by units termed as Transfer mechanisms which are individual learning designmethods that exploit expert performance with the help of Augmented reality and Wearabletechnology. These Transfer mechanisms allow various forms of training to be adapted to the WEKITapproach. The Transfer mechanisms also support components of the Four component instructionaldesign for ensuring optimal learning using the WEKIT methodology. Four component instructionaldesign model defines learning of complex task in a didactic approach where the expert plays a criticalrole. The framework supplements the model by technology enhanced learning methods that rely onexpert performance.The document also reports on current findings and future endeavours that WP1 will take to improvethe framework and the project itself.
