For DAF Trucks we have developed learning environments in which a number of order, billing and maintenance systems are explained. The target audience is the dealer network across Europe. That is why we offer the learning modules in 13 languages. We have also developed instructional films, simulations, interactive assignments and tests that are housed inside these learning modules. The courses are offered through our PantaPresenter and are linked to the existing DAF academy.
The TechniekXL foundation consults workers in the engineering industry about possible training paths. This is achieved in an online environment in which participants can choose their training paths and obtain a skills passport that is developed by PantaMedia. TechniekXL is a partnership between employers, employees, training funds, industry associations and individual companies. Their common goal is to promote continuous learning. The skills passport is recognized and supported by all parties involved and is therefore of great value to both employer and employee.
A + O Metalektro
Galaxy is the combined effort of social partners and A+O Metalektro. This digital learning environment supports workers in the metal and electrical industry in their constant development. The platform visually resembles a galaxy. Inside of the Galaxy it is easy to quickly obtain information in knowledge objects, follow a complete learning module in a learning object or directly apply your gained knowledge in an experience object. There are also planets that are filled with company-specific knowledge. These objects and their content may be created and maintained by the companies themselves. This way Galaxy is used as a knowledge platform. In addition, the Galaxy offers employees the opportunity to build their own portfolio of work and learning experiences. Both the University of Technology of Eindhoven and Twente are closely involved in the development of Galaxy.

The practical trainer or mentor is in daily contact with students. He or she coaches, gives instructions, leads conversations and assesses the students on their results. But how do you communicate smoothly and effectively with the student? What can you do if a conversation does not go as you had originally planned? To answer these questions we have developed a learning environment with interactive films especially for trainers and mentors who would like to use more effective conversational techniques. The films offer the possibility to determine the course of a conversation. At the end of each film it is explained what the consequences of your choices are.
SOMA College offers professional training with regards to civil engineering. We have developed a learning environment with simulations for the occupational task training of Ground Engineering Machinist. These simulations are used to instruct the students before they practice with real machines. Additionally we have made a number of instructional films to support the task training. In these short films an actor guides the students into the world of a machinist. PantaMedia is responsible for the realization of the learning environment, the interactive simulations as well as the instructional films.

Next to this we also produce product films that are used for commercial purposes.
What does it take to properly communicate with your customer? In the learning environment we have produced for Kenteq we give a number of examples on how to interact with your customers while working inside of their home.

The learning environment offers advice on how to be customer-friendly and communicate effectively; it does not offer you standard lines that you should say. The participant can decide for him or herself what path he or she will take in the learning environment and what issues are most important to him or her.
