From 5 to 7 December, the OEB Global 2018 trade fair will take place in Berlin. The international conference and exhibition format under the patronage of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research focuses on innovative learning technologies and IT developments, along with the newest trends in organisations involved in training and further education.
The trade fair will welcome visitors and exhibitors from over 80 countries, all with vastly differing experiences and thus underlining the international flair of the format.
Over three days, speakers will present their topics along with outstanding practical examples and the exhibitors will have direct contact with visiting professionals from the education, research and information technology sectors.
As a specialist for digital learning, training and further education and as an innovative IT company, time4you GmbH from Karlsruhe will be present at the OEB with two booths (F50 and C26) focussing on different topics.
Key subjects include application options based on the IBT® SERVER technology and the use of mobile learning and artificial intelligence in e-learning. Renowned international scientific and research projects, in which time4you is involved, will also be presented.
International collaboration in clinical research
One of the projects which will be presented at the OEB is IMPACHS, which stands for “IMProving Availability and Cost-effectiveness of mental Health care for Schizophrenia through mHealth.”
In summer 2017, Monsenso App (Denmark), the Psychiatric Research Unit of Zealand (Denmark), the University of Hamburg and time4you GmbH (Karlsruhe) started their joint research and development project.
IMPACHS aims at implementing mobile application solutions to support psychotherapeutic treatment of schizophrenia based on clinical evidence.
To this end, elements from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) are selected and prepared as digital learning and information nuggets. time4you is responsible for the technical integration of the platform, develops digital learning content based on its mobile and content solution and links these with Monsenso’s mHealth solution.
Is AI the future of e-learning?
One thing is for certain, virtual assistants are on the rise. Jix, a solution from time4you, allows virtual assistants to be developed on short notice within your own organisation in order to support and assist employees at their “point of need”. Initial use cases and learning experiences from the application scenarios will be presented in Berlin for the first time.
IBT SERVER for digital learning and working
On all three days, visitors can also learn about recent developments with the IBT SERVER software. The new version of the software, IBT® SERVER v22, is an example of a platform for digital learning and working which covers conventional formats and software solutions, such as learning management systems, seminar administration, talent management and skill management, as well as new approaches, including innovative content, interactive dashboards, social media tools and elements from the realm of artificial intelligence (AI).
The IBT® SERVER also represents twenty years of application experience, process and technology expertise combined with recent findings in user experience design.
time4you GmbH communication & learning is one of the leading providers of software and services for personnel, information and training management in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland – DACH). The innovative company from Karlsruhe provides customised turn-key solutions to its national and international medium-sized and corporate customers, as well as public institutions and education providers. Customers of time4you GmbH have benefited from the successful use of the IBT® SERVER software for many years.
Companies and organisations such as Hugo Boss AG, HUK-COBURG, Deutsche Telekom AG, Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Landeshauptstadt Düsseldorf, Swiss Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication (BIT), Gothaer Versicherung, EnBW AG have been utilizing the software solutions and expertise of time4you GmbH for many years.
The company implements learning and information portals on the intranet and internet, product training, multimedia learning content, skill and training management, certification programs, seminar administration and learning management systems, international project work, corporate learning and social media integration.
time4you is a member of BITKOM e.V. and ZiP (Zukunftsinitiative Personal).

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
Process engineers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have developed a method which allows the size and shape of nanoparticles in dispersions to be determined considerably quicker than ever before. Based on gold nanorods, they demonstrated how length and diameter distributions can be measured accurately in just one step instead of the complicated series of electron microscopic images which have been needed up until now. Nanoparticles from precious metals are used, for example, as catalysts and contrast agents for diagnosing cancer. The results have been published in the renowned journal Nature Communications (doi: 10.1038/s41467-018-07366-9).
Even in the Middle Ages, gold particles were used to create vibrant red and blue colours, for example to illustrate biblical scenes in stained glass windows....
The experiments conducted from July until November at the Wendelstein 7-X fusion device at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Greifswald have achieved higher values for the density and the energy content of the plasma and long discharge times of up to 100 seconds – record results for devices of the stellarator type. Meanwhile, the next round of the step-by-step upgrading of Wendelstein 7-X has begun. It is to equip the device for greater heating power and longer discharges. Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest fusion device of the stellarator type, is to investigate the suitability of this configuration for use in a power plant.
During the course of the step-by-step upgrading of Wendelstein 7-X, the plasma vessel was fitted with inner cladding since September of last year.
Advances in environmental technology: You don’t need complex filters and laser systems to destroy persistent pollutants in water. Chemists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a new process that works using mere sunlight. The process is so simple that it can even be conducted outdoors under the most basic conditions. The chemists present their research in the journal “Chemistry - a European Journal”.
The chemists at MLU rely on electrons moving freely in water, so-called hydrated electrons, to degrade dissolved pollutants.
The experimental investigation of ultracold quantum matter makes it possible to study quantum mechanical phenomena that are otherwise hardly accessible. A team led by the Innsbruck physicist Francesca Ferlaino has now succeeded for the first time in mixing quantum gases of the strongly magnetic elements Erbium and Dysprosium and creating a dipolar quantum mixture.
Only a few years ago it seemed unfeasible to extend the techniques of atom manipulation and deep cooling in the ultracold regime to many-valence-electron...
