IITSEC, the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference, is the World’s Largest Modeling, Simulation & Training Conference and it was held 28 November – 2 December 2016 in the West Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center. The paper „Changing the fabric of learning content through the atomic learning approach” ATS has prepared in collaboration with BIBA described a new approach to learning management in pervasive context, marking the shift towards new learning spaces that are reshaped based on learners’ needs, performance, abilities, as well as on the learning objectives that have to be met.
