"Ludenso: Exploring How Learning Can Be Reshaped With Augmented Reality and Publishing – With Ingrid Skrede and Harald Manheim”

With the goal of empowering learners and educators to explore, learn, and create by moving into the areas of Augmented Reality and publishing, Ludenso is an educational technology company located in Norway.

Ingrid and Harald join us from Oslo to first explain the meaning of the company name and why it was selected.

They go on to illustrate what AR is and how it has been put to use in technology, education, gaming, and many other fields. After that, they share valuable insights from the perspectives of research, production, and relevance to the 'metaverse'.

Hopefully, their efforts in reshaping the learning process with the power of AR and publishing can be inspiring to you as well. For more information about AR, education, publishing, and how we can do more with the three of them, please visit the their website.

In this podcast episode, you could also hear Ingrid and Harald talk about:

  • Can AR be the next educational game changer to reshape learning in a meaningful way?

  • How could AR help readers with ADHD, Dyslexia, and language barriers?

  • Their fondness for skiing & reading, and their wish to have dinner with the Israeli historian Yuval Noah Harari, the first computer programmer Ada Lovelace, and the 9-times-nominee-for-the-Nobel-Prize Aldous Huxley.

The multiple benefits of exports and style sheets


Guest: Julia Reckel, Project Manager at Hanser

Some background information: the practical value & use of well-kept and maintained data in Klopotek

Carl Hanser Verlag, "one of the few medium-sized publishing companies in the German-speaking area still owned by the founding family" (source:, is one of our first customers: This publisher has been using Klopotek for more than 25 years. An optimization project was completed in 2020 which included upgrading to version 11 of the Klopotek Classic Line solution, so all processes can now be handled using the Klopotek software. In so doing, the project team also took the opportunity to address optimization issues such as "What can we get out of Klopotek, exactly?" and "Do we use the system the best possible way and how can our users generate added value?"

Since then, the practical value and relevance of well-maintained data has become and is still becoming apparent at a growing number of departments, especially when creating individual flyers, internal documents, and lists at the touch of a button.

Another element that is being addressed is title metadata in XML: using InDesign, it can be transformed to become a publisher's preview or HTML pages...
