The aim of the project is to create a Construction Information Technology Multi-Media Education and Training System, thus delivering e-learning in a sector where this type of provision is currently largely unavailable.
This will consist of a flexible and expandable interactive framework capable of accommodating a diverse range of training areas. A significant area of current construction training will be developed within this framework.
On completion of the product, the project will develop a fully interactive system, available on CD or Internet, capable of being expanded into other technical and vocational areas. The target audiences are those undertaking vocational training in further and higher education. Partners include educational establishments and consulting engineers with support from professional institutes and manufacturers for dissemination to members and to the industry.
The outcome of the project will be to improve:
„h the quality of training of existing programmes in each partner country through the introduction of ILT;
„h access to vocational education through the Internet with improved access for continuing vocational training;
„h the ICT skills of lecturers and students by embedding ILT into the curriculum;
„h a greater European dimension to construction training which will result in a more mobile future workforce;
„h language competences resulting from the inclusion of micro-language support will help mobility.
