iiRDS Online Training

In spring 2020, the first iiRDS Training should have been on-site...

...but just as we were inviting the participants to the tekom headquarter in Stuttgart, a fast-spreading pandemic changed our plans and made on-site events impossible for an indefinite time.

tekom and the designated trainers therefore changed the iiRDS Training into a blended learning course including live web sessions, quizzes, assignments, self-study and studying in small groups. The first iiRDS Training then took place as a pure online training in June 2020. Not just the content and the learnings that could be achieved within two weeks, but also the training format was convincing to the training participants.

The first round of the online iiRDS Training was exclusively for members of the iiRDS Consortium. In an updated format, the online training took place in June 2021. This time with non-Consortium Members as well.

Our next iiRDS Online Training is planned for spring/summer 2023.

As soon as the details are finalized, we will post them here and in our iiRDS newsletter.

Contents and Organization of the iiRDS Training

The iiRDS Online Training addresses various focus topics of the standard. These are accomplished by the participants in different learning forms:

In several live web meetings with the trainers, lectures are held and questions around the topics are discussed and answered. Some sections require self-study and group-study with other training participants. Furthermore, participants have to solve quizzes and hand in exercises to the trainers. These are corrected and given back with extensive individual feedback.

The training material will be made available for the participants afterwards.

The following contents are the main topics:

Topic 1: Introduction to smart content and iiRDS

Topic 2: The metadata model of iiRDS

Topic 3: The iiRDS package format

Topic 4: iiRDS and other standards

Topic 5: Toolchain and systems for iiRDS

Topic 6: iiRDS in companies

Further Training Details and Costs

The iiRDS Online Training takes place over a duration of two weeks which is approximately equivalent to two full days of training. The exact amount of time expenditure is dependent on the participants' individual learning speed.

Upon request, the participants can receive a confirmation of participation.

The cost per participant for the iiRDS Online Training is set at € 1.800.

For iiRDS Consortium Members, the iiRDS Online Training is offered for a small administration fee.

What iiRDS Training Participants Said

"This course boosted my knowledge in understanding the iiRDS concepts. Because of the extensive feedback to our final assignment, this was the first time I really understood how to correctly model an ontology, in this case the iiRDS ontology." (Sabine Mahr, wordbsign)

"The course provided a holistic overview on iiRDS as a new industry standard, its mission and enablement capabilities to transform information into knowledge management within a digitized world while it´s abilities for adoption and enhancements have also been explained very well." (André Schlotz, SDL)
