Product Type website
The Self-acquired learning validation toolkit is an innovative online toolkit (at www.create-validate.org) for assessment of the results of informal learning in web design and computer animation.
It is an example how different tools (modern and interactive) can be used by VET organizations and instituions in assessing informal learning. Those different tools are: e-games, interactive online tests and ePortfolio.
The toolkit is fully accessible online in English, Bulgarian and German. It is developed in an easy-to-localize way allowing for the addition of more tools and languages. At this moment it comprises more than 20 tools assessing knowledge, skills and competences in web design and computer animation.
The toolkit can also be used for so called self-assessment by young people who have some knowledge, skills and competences in computer animation and web design but wish to check them and decide if they need more training or not.
The Self-acquired learning validation toolkit is available at www.create-validate.org in English, Bulgarian and German.
Registration is necessary. Otherwise, the tool is free and all who wish to use it, can access it.
It can be accessed through so called "teachers" account and another "students" account. Teachers create groups of students when they organize assessment of the results of informal learning of those students. Teachers can see the results only of their group of students. They can also change the units' weights and from then the ECVET points assigned to each unit.
Students, on the other hand, can play the tools and then check their results.
Each registered user can play the tools only once.
