iClass Project was initiated in January 1, 2004. United under a consortium lead by Siemens Business Services, 22 partners from 11 different countries are working to develop an intelligent cognitive-based open learning system and environment, adapted to individual learners' needs at a European level. The efforts will, by envisioning the educational process of the future, involve the following: (1) extensive research for the definition and design of next generation products and services, (2) the creation and testing of prototypes, (3) and the measurement of the impact to ensure effective utilization of technology in pre-university education.
