ASSERTED KNOWLEDGE (AKNOW) is a technical consulting and staff sourcing company providing highly skilled ICT services and staff to organisations.

A key activity of AKNOW is the design of highly personalised training systems achieved through the use of complex and multidimensional user models and profiles which simulate the learners and their needs. The user models are then fed to a personalisation engine for the elaboration of highly customised training plans.

The specific design is the outcome of our experiences with regards to addressing the specific training needs of corporations, SMEs and higher education institutes in the era of web 3.0, Open Educational Resources and MOOCs.

Our vision is to serve what Web 3.0 should be all about by utilising learner’s data for their own benefit in learning thus promoting the “democratisation” of user data instead of its exploitation for marketing and advertising purposes as happens today with Web 2.0.
