Project Number DE/07/LLP-LdV/TOI/147016
Product learning platform
Title learning platform
Product Type open and distance learning
The learning platform contains the e-learning parts of the it’s time training courses and includes a communication platform allowing course participants and their tutors to discuss contents, exchange opinions, etc. The e-learning platform formed one part of the b-learning training course, the other one being the face-to-face seminars as well as the self-studying parts of the course.
The four project modules were tested on that platform wich was part of the pilot courses in Germany, the Netherland, Portugal and Finland.
Target group employed, employers, trainers, trainees, education managers, advisors, educators, managers of SME's, apprentrices, adult learners
Result The learning platform, together with the communication platform, forms the e-learning aspect of the blended-learning programme Workplace Tutor. Both platforms were tested during the pilot courses. The contents and the assignments of all four piloted modules were uploaded there. The learners and teachers exchanged experiences and information actively. The assignments could be downloaded from the registrated learners and then uploaded again for discussions. The result is a learning platform with four elaborated modules including assingments and communication platform for the users. Each core partner piloted one module in his own language, so we created four differnt accesses for each piloting group.
Area of application In this, they were targeted at and used by the course participants who came from different organisations and sectors. Beyond this, the platform is freely available to other interested organisations, some of which will naturally involve: training providers and / or universities who are interested in an e-learning environment for their course offerings; universities offering or wishing to offer similar programmes (e.g. Stenden University); training staff of companies at large (mostly SMEs since the vast majority of large companies employ their own training environments) as end users; trade unions and their training organisations which would like to employ an e-learning environment for their course offers.
