Summary The aim is the development of the e-learning platform “Virtual Interior Textiles Academy”. For this didactical concepts are being developed, different European partners are creating sample learning modules, the platform is being tested in practice and optimised. In addition to developing the e-learning platform also reference documents are being written which will show the user (i.e. also teachers and trainers) later on how to utilise the platform. The e-learning platform as such is a scalable, multilingual online-user platform with a standardised interface for the development of learning modules (web based training). It will be integrated as a fixed component into vocational training and advanced training (e.g. by means of certified training courses) and it will include extensive contents in form of learning modules and tests. Learning contents and learning processes will be adapted into a multimedia virtual world (text, graphics, animation, interactive elements). In future the contents can of course be extended and the platform is available to all potential users in the area of interior textiles. 2. Primary target groups are the industry, the retail trade and the handicraft of the interior textiles industry. On the one hand an increase in the quality of the textile vocational training should be achieved and on the other hand the chance to receive advanced training on a European level should be provided, either solely as an internet training course or as a combination of internet and attending classes. Target groups are thus also European schools for vocational training and courses as well as all educational institutions in the EU for interior textiles. If required the issue of national or regional distinctions can be separately addressed by the learning contents of the Virtual Interior Textiles Academy.
