iiRDS Online Training

iiRDS Training is a blended learning course...

...including live web sessions, quizzes, assignments, self-study and studying in small groups. The first iiRDS Training 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 was also held for non-consortium members in June 2021 and again in June 2023. Our next iiRDS training is expected to take place in the spring of 2024.

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 and iiRDS/A

Topic 4: iiRDS and other standards (iiRDS and VDI 2770)

Topic 5: Toolchain and systems for generating and processing iiRDS data

Topic 6: Use of iiRDS in companies

Further Training Details and Costs

The iiRDS Online Training takes place over a duration of four weeks which is approximately equivalent to four full days of training. The exact amount of time expenditure is dependent on the participants' individual learning speed. You can download the training schedule 2023 here.

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)
