Anthony Hié, director of digital transformation, accompanied by Laura Zdroui, director of human resources and transformation, and Caroline O’Neil, educational engineer, presented their projects for the group with us.

Excelia: An overhaul of learning methods

As technology changes rapidly in the Covid-19 health crisis, Excelia seeks to adapt to social changes and new digital challenges. In fact, Anthony Hié, the group’s director of digital transformation, says: “ We want Excelia to be with the evolutions of our time and put innovation at the center of change. Our main mission is to face the challenge of digital sobriety and respond to new uses.. »

Excelia provides a unique educational experience in the form of metaverses (plural!). The group planned not just one, but two metaverse experiences: a synchronous metaverse and one asynchronous metatarsus. The synchronous metaverse, digital twin of XL Factory, is a resource device for collaboration and experimentation. The asynchronous metaverse, on the other hand, is a unique tool that will provide a block of skills and create immersive learning experiences to enhance students ’thinking abilities, regardless of location or space.

The group also revealed the launch of Digital Workplace, a portal that will provide multiple services to all stakeholders and especially to students. This omnichannel device will allow everyone to benefit from it workplace. Students can now register on the smartphone and continue their computer experience for full continuity. In short, the Digital Workplace is a central digital work environment and a collaborative resource center. It also aims to simplify the online candidate registration process.

The Excelia group doesn’t stop there and offers to Factory in XL, a key tool for changing learning methods. Four dimensions are in the spotlight: explore, MAKE, think and lab. The learning lab will thus be integrated with XL Factory for greater convenience for students. XL Factory is a physical space open to everyone (students, teachers, employees). Unlike traditional learning labs, XL Factory is a space that allows you to innovate, collaborate, experiment and share new learning experiences.

Another major project, the Learning Experience Platform, which will support digital transformation into phygital. This platform aims to optimize students ’learning experience and respond to new digital needs. In the program: micro-modules (micro-certifications), enhanced social experience and adaptive learning.

And because Excelia knows that students once again need to find themselves on real campuses, the group is also betting on physically smart campuses. Yes, the metaverse is good, but it’s also real!

In short, XLVision a learning experience project that combines immersion and metaverse, with a very important phygital approach. Excelia wants to develop and support innovative and immersive pedagogies.
