Fabrizio Cardinali, CEO of eXact learning solutions North America, said: “We’ve just launched our eXact Mobile 2.0 solutions which bring the power of location based and personal learning content management to a new range of devices, such as Apple’s iPad and other tablets.”
Cardinali, as Chair of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG), will join the Pre-Conference Workshop: The European Digital Education Agenda on Wednesday, 1st December, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. The workshop includes leading international stakeholders from the European Commission and ELIG, as well as worldwide market analysts.
