R1 - Methodology Handbook
Methodology Handbook describes the procedures for transferring of the already existing courses or learning content from one to another sectoral area and from one to another socio-cultural environment, based on usage of corresponding ontologies (or taxonomies) for differ-ent sectors and different socio-cultural or national environments. The Methodology Handbook contributes to facilitated provision of unified training content applicable in different EU countries and recycling areas for 4 target groups: less qualified workers (representing more than 80% employees in recycling SMEs), management staff, technical staff and trainers and consultants, and educating SME staff.
R2 - e-Learning system and specific modules
The set of courses was realised based on the Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle - a free, Open Source software package, up-graded with a set of additional functionalities according to the user requirements. Specific learning modules are transferred from previous projects, and updated/reworked where necessary. The resulting initial solutions comprised courses on:
• general recycling technologies, based on the original courses from the Tramcar project
• new business forms and SME networking, based on the original learning content from the E-Mult project, and
• business process improvement and supporting ICT, based on the e-learning course eBEP
R3 - General Recycling Practices Handbook
General Recycling Practices Handbook is available online as part of ALCVET courses – “ALCVET: General information about recycling” and as printable materials in doc files.
