Title LEGEND - Leverage knowledge for sustainable innovation and growth
Project Number 2013-1-SK1-LEO05-06361
Product Adjusted training materials (participants) for e-learning
Title Adjusted training materials (participants) for e-learning
Product Type material for open learning
Marketing Text The digitalisation of the training materials enables the learners and course participants to do asynchronous e-learning assignments to strenghten their knowledge through repetition and applying the theorectical content in their specific environment and to connect with lecturers and other participants outside of the classroom. This contributes to achieving the project objectives as it enables the learners (SMEs, their partner institutions as well as future trainers) to apply the Intellectual Capital Method in order to become important players withing the Regional Innovation Systems.
E-learning system represents a modern and flexible way to learn. Its advantage lies mainly in flexible access to all materials, storage of high-capacity documents, posting of further reading, lectures and other tools. E-learning system may serve also for sharing videos or as a forum for discussion with students. Within the LEGEND project, it serves as one of the sustainability tools operating after the project end.
The E-learning system was developed simultaneously with teaching materials. While the teaching content was being developed, the technicians of Centire created e-learning system according to the requirements of the project partners. The elaborated learning materials were transferred into an electronic format that can be easily integrated in the e-learning system. Already when developing the curricula, it was considered that all final training materials need to be applied into the e-Learning system. Therefore, all materials were developed in an electronic format and integrated e-Learning components. The materials were designed to be easily and clearly structured within the different modules of the training which allows an easy transition into the e-Learning system. The materials provided the learners with an overview of the content, the learning objectives and outcomes of each module. All curricula were visualized to help the learner to navigate through the modules following the learning path
2) Trainers (“future trainers”)
3) SME partner organizations from academic institutions: Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and Research & Development (R&D) Institutions
4) Partner institutions/Project team members
5) Other stakeholders in the Regional Innovation System (e.g. policy-maker or professionals working with SMEs and interested in innovation and R&D support, comprising the existing or potential trainers, consultants, academics, etc. who could later use the skills in further training of SME managers or their partner institutions engaged in R&D activities on intellectual capital management).
Area of application Different industries (SMEs from the IT-, BioTech-, Engery-sector etc.) and Higher Education sector
