Title On-line learning modules for renewable energy resources for landscape development
Project Number 2008-1-SK1-LEO05-00227
Project Type Projets de transfert d'innovation
Marketing Text Main objective of the project is to create “Institute of Lifelong Learning” for agri-sector employees and to create on-line learning modules focused on landscape development in area of renewable energy resources. It will open the space for human resources development in agricultural resort. We plan to complete 5 online modules (Solar, Water, Wind and Geothermal Energy and Energy of Biomass) and other study materials in the form of CD-ROM multimedia textbook. E-learning methods and ICT devices will be used as educational methods. Project duration is 24 months – from October 1, 2008 till September 30, 2010.
Summary The main aim of the project is to create “Institute of Lifelong Learning” for agrisector employees. Hand in hand with this aim going creation on-line learning course with five modules focused on landscape development in area of renewable energy resources. Each of the modules will be multi-lingual – in Slovak, English and German languages. We will also prepare other study materials, in the form of CD-ROM but available from Internet too, multimedia textbook with animations, hyperlink, graphics, audio and video sequences. Last aim is to prepare “Education Guide for Tutors” and ”Education Guide for Students” – manuals how to use, create and study in online courses.
Main objective of the project is to create “Institute of Lifelong Learning” for agri-sector employees. Particular aim of the project is to create on-line learning modules focused on landscape development in area of renewable energy resources (RES). It can open the space for human resources development in agricultural resort. We plan complete 5 online modules – Solar Energy, Water Energy, Wind Energy, Geothermal Energy and Energy of Biomass and prepare other study materials in the form of CD-ROM multimedia textbook with animations, hyperlink, graphics etc. E learning methods, ICT devices, LMS system and virtual study space (e.g EVO system) are used as educational methods and devices. At the same time, there will be advisory service for application RES in the agricultural sector.
The modules are prepared in cooperation with partners who are actively involved in education in the area of agricultural and renewable energy resources (RES). The project is based on the study program from Slovak Agricultural University “Techniques for renewable energy resources”. Six project’s partners have different position in the project depending on their experiences. The partners are oriented on:
agricultural and renewable energy resources (Slovak Agricultural University, Slovakia and MultiMedia SunShine Ltd., United Kingdom),
e-learning and webhosting (Infoart, Bulgaria),
technical sciences (FH Johanneum - University of Applied Science, Austria).
telematics, multimedia and e-learning (Swedish Telepedagogic Knowledge Centre, Sweden)
development of lifelong learning strategies and concepts in agri-food sector (Agroinstitut Nitra, Slovakia).
Project is the transfer of international multilanguage study materials published on virtual study space and e-books. Project transferred the innovation, knowledge and experience from the previous EU funded projects ELEVATE and EDUET. It also exploits existing materials (e books): Building for Energy Conservation and Energy Management and Renewable Energy Sources Graphical Database.
The main aim of the project RESNET is creation of Institute of Lifelong Learning for agrisector employees. Hand in hand with this aim going creation on-line learning course with five modules focused on landscape development in area of renewable energy resources. Each of the modules will be multi-lingual – in Slovak, English and German languages. We will also prepare other study materials, in the form of CD-ROM but available from Internet too, multimedia textbook with animations, hyperlinks, graphics, audio and video sequences.
For online courses will be prepare “Education guide for Tutors” and “Education Guide for Students”. It will be manuals how to use, create and study in online courses in LMS Moodle.
Target group of the project are employees of agrisector – farmers, agricultural engineering or consultants. Complete of online course give them knowledge who can upraise their competences and application of them into praxis bring economical and ecological rural development. We expected that in longtime perspective created pilot course, and consequently other courses, will be implemented into study programs not only on Technical Faculty of Slovak University of Agricultural but in other traditional and distance forms of lifelong learning.
